Here at Creative, we are super excited to see the additional functionality and great new features in the April release of Dynamics 365 Business Central. Microsoft continues to invest heavily in this application and in this release there has been over 350 new capabilities added to the system. Performance and reliability has been improved, and there are more keyboard shortcuts too. Here’s our list of the top few things in this update we think are worth noting.
(1) 100 character descriptions.
Description and name fields have increased from 50 to 100 characters. This will really help where more details on journal lines postings is required.
(2) Performance improvements.
There are also a number of performance improvements. Both Posting and rapid start up packages are twice as fast. Scrolling on lists is also improved with load time. No more “fetching more rows” as you can seamlessly scroll to the end, or use Ctrl-Home and Ctrl-End.
(3) Merge Duplicate Vendors/Customers.
Made a mistake and created a duplicate? Well, now there’s a tool to let you merge two records into one to be copied to the current vendor or customer. You can control which master data to keep and all transactions will be copied to the current record, while the duplicate will be removed.
(4) View payment info on the vendor statistics factbox.
Now it is easy to see the last payment date made to vendors. (this functionality is also available on customers)
(5) Ability to change description on G/L entries
If the wrong description was used during posting you no longer need to reverse the transaction. Now you can simply edit the description from the general ledger entries.
(6) Auto Save Indicator
This is oh so simple, but a really useful indication that the record is actually being saved. If there is an error the system will show “Not Saved”.
