As Partners, we need to receive clear information about functionality marked as obsolete. Currently, there is this page with a list of fields

We need not only in which version the field has been marked as obsolete but also what is changing and when will be possible to apply the changes:

Example of today's received messages:
warning AL0432:
- Field 'Use for Invoicing' is marked for removal. Reason: Microsoft Invoicing is not supported on Business Central. Tag: 15.0.
- Table 'Item Template' is marked for removal. Reason: This functionality will be replaced by other templates.. Tag: 16.0.

From the current messages, I cannot do any action yet.

Thank you for this suggestion! We need some more details to understand your suggestion better. Can you please help us by answering the following question?

We have started lists of upcoming and existing changes, such as this list for changes in the global base version: 

Does a list like that help you? If not, please help us understand why not.


Best regards,
Business Central Team




In my opinion you could start tracking features with a unique identifier and then add the identifier in the comment of the changes (obsolete reason) so that a developer can easily search for that reference and track back to the feature.
For example, the code analyzers use unique references, like AL0432 that has a dedicated page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/business-central/dev-itpro/developer/diagnostics/diagnostic-al432

Hope this helpes
