Project Operations & D365 Project Service Automation
As Dynamics Project Operations combines features of Microsoft Project, Dynamics Finance and Dynamics Project Service Automation (PSA), it is an upgrade to PSA for organisations. The added project management, accounting and expense management capabilities make Project Operation the better end-to-end application.
With this in mind, Microsoft have announced they won't be adding any new features to PSA, and any current PSA customers will be grandfathered over to Project Operations licensing. This is available for customers who purchased or renewed Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation SKUs before 1 October 2020. More information on tools for data migration from PSA to Project Operation is expected from Microsoft later this year.
Microsoft support for Dynamics Project Service Automation will not be available after October 2024.
Please do contact us if you require any more information, or are thinking of moving from Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation to Project Operations.
