Add a field to capture cost of training and report on it.

Allow manager/HR to update absence

Status: New
by GarethEJones on ‎07-25-2017 03:20 PM

Frequently a manager/HR may need to update an absence request for an employee (e.g. when they phone in sick).  The solution should provide functionality for a manager/HR to update an employee's absence plan, and for conditionality to exist within a workflow for this to be auto-approved.

Succession planning

Is there any plan to create something for succession planning? That's an important task which almost every customer is demandig for.

Track data in days instad of hours

Add "working day" definiion to the system (i.e. working day = 7.5 hours) so users could add absence, holidays and other information in days/half-days rather than hours. This is very important for EU users.


At the moment, when employees are asking for 3 weeks of holidays, they have to add 7.5 hours in each line (15 lines) instead of just specifying "from" and "to" dates.


We can leverage the integration with linkedin with skill sets which you can endorse people for on their profiles on linkedin and integrate this into individuals profiles and skill sets in Talent

Available Loaned equipment

It could be great if already loaned equipment disappeared from the Loan item list when assigning an item to a worker in the same way that occupied positions disappear from the position assignments.

HR view of absence

Status: New

The solution would benefit from allowing HR to drill down into an employee's absence transactions and see what has been requested/approved and the amount outstanding.

Additions to employee self service

by IsabelleSmeekes


Two things I think would be valueable to add to Employee Self service:


1. Enable employees to edit their Tasks list by adding and marking topics or activties with alerts in which they might need support etc.


2. Possibly integrating with powerBi and Office365 to create productiity dashboards. This can be something like what we have here at Microsoft in MyAnalytics - this relates nicely to performance goals and skills.



  • The solution would benefit from rights for the manager to add onboarding/offboarding checklists/tasks via Employee Self Service as opposed to HR getting involved in all the administration.  Scenario : Mgr adds task for IT to set up rights to specific folders, IT to set up laptop.

Restrict view of absence plan categories

Status: New
by GarethEJones on ‎07-25-2017 03:10 PM

The absence solution could be made stronger by enabling HR to restrict the view of certain absence plan categories to security roles.  For example, some clients may not want to show all sickness category information to all users.

Absence plan sub-categories

Status: New
by GarethEJones on ‎07-25-2017 03:01 PM

Many HR Departments will have a concept of the types of absence that form a plan.  e.g. a Sickness plan may have many subcategories that roll up into the sickness absence plan.  The leave and absence solution would benefit from being able to attribute sub-categories to a absence plan.

Support Welsh language

Welsh is a language which is supported as a Windows/Office language pack, but not currently available in Dynamics 365. Public sector organisations in Wales have a duty to not treat Welsh less favourably than English. They are unable to meet this duty within the current language offering.

Consider adding hover text to each of the buttons that display on the ribbon when selecting the Personalize Form option.  It will help user's understand the button purpose.

Full compensation information accessed via ESS

Status: New

Currently, workers can see their fixed compensation with last increase amount on ESS. Any chance workers could access through ESS their full compensation record including variable compensation plans and awards information?


EDIT: The full compesation details can be accessed via ESS by selecting the salary amount. Perhaps not that obvious way.

Integrate with online training platforms

Add integration with online training platforms such as so that all course reporting will happen in Dynamics 365 for Talent.

Additional filtering functionality

Status: New
by Matej on ‎01-22-2018 12:59 AM

When assigning goals or reviews to workers, it would be useful if user could use the filter functionality - filter by job, job type, job function, position, position type when (multi)selecting relevant workers. This would be also useful when participants are being assigned to Courses.


I've seen for example a concept of filter groups against which queries are defined e.g. position type = "Full time" (something like saved query) and this group would retrieve all matching worker records when used when assigning goals, reviews, courses.Untitled.jpg

We found out late last year that Talent does not support Azure AD guest users. As a partner we often have our partner accounts added to a customers domain as a guest and this works fine for other apps (e.g. D365 Finance and Ops Ent). Can you please add support for Azure AD guest users to Talent.
