CRM 2015 Update 1 is OUT! (CRM Online)

CRM 2015 Update 1 (AKA: .v7.1; Carina) has been out for a few weeks now.

Microsoft started rolling out CRM 20125 for Online instances back in December 2015, and now it’s time to do the same for 2015 U1.

For on-premises, this update is scheduled to be released in Q4 2014 (source 1 ; source 2).

This is a very exiting release, as it brings a plethora of new features and improvements, some of them long-awaited (Microsoft seems to be listening loud and clear partners and customers suggestions).

Even the web UI has had a distinctive change (if you see the UX in the image below, then you are on Update 1 already, ;))

    Any suggestions on how they can get the Carina update applied?



  2. Approval/Scheduling of updates is available through O365 Administration site (direct lnk should be similar to: When U1 is available for the organization it should show there.

    Update availability will depend on the region, country, etc, would suggest one of the following:

    1. Wait a little bit more
    2. Raise a support request with Microsoft from you O365 instance (if you are pretty sure it should be available for you already)
    3. As in the community site (
