Dynamics 365 now provides a Non-Production environment as standard when you are purchasing full user licenses (apps or plans).

This is effectively your testing environment and you get one non-production environment per love instances (although more can be purchased). Users can test, develop, demonstrate or design changes to the Dynamics 365 set up without putting it live. It’s a big improvement on what was on offer with Dynamics CRM when only 25 or more users received a non-production instance. Customers with fewer than 25 users either had to publish their customisations directly on their live instance, or pay an add-on cost for a sandbox. Neither of these were great scenarios for businesses who needed to phase in changes for employees or who had concerns about testing on live systems. Thankfully, Dynamics 365 includes 1 x non-production instance as default enabling all administrations to test updates separate from their live CRM instance.
