On Friday, December 4th, 2020, you will no longer be able to force the Classic View.

Microsoft is shifting to their new Unified Interface, and as of December 4, 2020, the Classic View will no longer be available. What does that mean for you?

This change will affect anyone who uses Dynamics 365 apps, such as Dynamics 365 Sales and Dynamics 365 Customer Service. This new Unified Interface for model-driven apps will provide a consistent feel and convenient user experience across devices. Microsoft’s aim with this change is to provide an improved performance with a modern interface.

If you’ve already made the switch, but find yourself toggling back to the Classic View, now is the time to learn the new Unified Interface. On Friday, December 4th, you will no longer be able to force the Classic View. If you haven not yet made the switch, Microsoft will automatically transition your environment or organization to the Unified Interface. The transition will be applied by geographic location in alignment with a typical update cycle.

Microsoft does not expect any downtime during the transition process, but you must confirm that your environment is compatible.

Below are some important differences to note:

As previously mentioned, the option to view in Classic Mode instead of the new Unified Interface will no longer be an option.
