Microsoft to Retire Attract and Onboard with a Name Change from Dynamics 365 for Talent to Dynamics 365 Human Resources. What Does This Mean for You?

Microsoft has announced their name change from Dynamics 365 for Talent to Dynamics 365 Human Resources. (read the full press release here) As the name changes, so does the HR solution. The two applications Attract and Onboard will be retired. Clients can no longer purchase the Dynamics 365 for Talent solution from February 1st, 2020 onward. Attract will be replaced by LinkedIn Talent Hub. There is no alternative for Onboarding. By removing Attract and Onboard, Dynamics 365 Human resources is an incomplete solution for you as a partner, for your customers, or, if you are a customer, for your HR department.

FourVision, as the Global Partner of the Year for Dynamics 365 for Talent, supports the total recruitment and HR process by delivering at least the same functionality while simultaneously offering more easily adaptable options. We are going to keep providing the Recruitment and Onboarding functionality with our own products and our strategic partnerships with Dynamics ATS and Phenom People. This is all seamlessly integrated with Dynamics 365 Human Resources (formerly Talent). This makes the Dynamics 365 platform the best place for a complete, mature Human Resource solution for the Recruiting, Hire to Retire process.


The current Microsoft Attract App cannot be purchased anymore. Now what…?

FourVision has the right solutions for you. We go beyond a standard recruitment and hiring approach with the right recruitment and hiring processes and the perfect tools. We see two solutions or options:

The first is the LinkedIn Talent Hub; a logical step of Microsoft to support recruitment processes through LinkedIn. If possible, we will become the implementation partner for LinkedIn Talent hub.

However, this first option only tells half of the story.

There are many organizations that do not use LinkedIn or companies in countries where LinkedIn is not the main networking tool but something else is (like Xing). These businesses have a need for an Application Tracking System (ATS) which is a part of the Dynamics 365 platform. We regard Dynamics ATS as the best Applicant Tracking System you can get. So option two is to go with this solution.

In collaboration with Dynamics ATS for recruiting, direct and contract placement, executive search, staffing and consultant businesses, Fourvision supports the full candidate – recruiter – manager experience tailored to your organization’s size and type. We recommend that you choose this option if your business is either quite small or medium sized up to 4,000 employees with a majority white collar or white and blue collar mixed workforce. For large business enterprises with a workforce of over 4,000, FourVision has partnered up with Phenom People to extend the same offer of a fully functioning Candidate experience for your company.

And what about offer?

We will replace Offer by our Web App Document Management. The Document Management solution can create offers or any other contract, letter or formal document. We can drag and drop templates and letters easily. Any document can be stored separately, is fully GDPR compliant and available for the total Dynamics 365 Human Resource (formerly Talent) solution.


The Current Microsoft Onboard App is retired. What happens next?

We have replaced it with FourVision’s Web App Onboarding. Like all other Web Apps, it is a Cloud-based SAAS solution that seamlessly integrates with Dynamics 365 Human Resources (formerly Talent). On top of that, the FourVision Onboarding Web App communicates fluently with our other Web Apps to offer a fully functional workflow from attract to hire, from registering a new employee to onboarding and managing the new hire’s progress within your company.

FourVision offers, free of charge, the data migration of your current Microsoft Onboarding to the FourVision Onboarding Web App. On the one condition that Microsoft keeps access for a full data migration open.
