The third edition of our Blog Series on Dynamics 365 is here and today's topic is for the developers - the hard working consultants and customizers who work behind the scenes to ensure that your Dynamics 365 works smooth like butter.

Processes include full security support, meaning they are only available to approved roles. Process records are externally available through the SDK for custom applications such as PowerApps and Power BI.
