If you are a current Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online subscriber, you have undoubtedly noticed the Update scheduled message appearing immediately under the navigation bar when you log into Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. While the update is optional, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015 is a worthwhile upgrade that adds several welcome features, including global search, improved Products, and more powerful Business Process Flows.
However, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015 also removes support for old versions of Internet Explorer, several client SDK APIs, and a few other deprecated features. You should make sure that any customizations you have deployed to your CRM organization don’t depend on these features before you complete the update. You will also want to make sure that compatible web browser versions are in place before you update. You can reschedule your update to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015 to give your organization time to update any custom applications and upgrade any user workstations.
Changes in browser support for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015
One obvious change is that Microsoft is removing support for Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9 from Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015. You will need to make sure that all user workstations have IE 10, IE 11, or the most recent version of Mozilla Firefox before you update to CRM Online 2015. Please note that even though Google Chrome is listed as a compatible browser, we still do not recommend it due to compatibility issues.
