Please notify us of minor environment upgrades in advance.

Currently, major version upgrades are notified in advance. However, minor version upgrades can also make Extensions unusable, so it's helpful to let us know in advance.

Non Global Admin role to get access to BC Administration Center

We would like to be able to give the people who manage our Business Central Tenant access to the Business Central Administration Center, but we cannot because they are not Global Admins in our network. It would be nice if another role like the "Dynamics 365 Administrator" role in Azure gave them...

In Business Central on-prem we can manage user permissions based on Azure AD security groups, but in the SaaS version this is not an option.
