There is a mapping function in Business Central that will pop out a map showing the location or directions to the locations for addressed records such as customers, vendors and locations. The map can be run from either the desktop version of the application or the mobile application.
Wave 2 2020 brings integration into Teams.
What this means is that if you paste the web link of a record you want someone to look at into a Teams discussion then Teams will render the link into the record that others can then open directly from Teams.
Wave 2 2020 brings the ability to create more environments, in fact it is unlimited.
Business Central will have one production (live) environment and three sandbox environments, as standard.
Wave 2 2020 has a new feature where you can select which lines of a previously posted journal you can choose to correct, reverse, re-post.
This could be used not only for corrections but repeating journals to build up accruals/prepayments or reverse them in a following period.
Wave 2 2020 introduces a new feature called “Company Hub” – this would primarily be for users that have access to multiple environments or multiple tenancies.
For example, if you are the accountant for a group of companies spread out across the world so that your USA company accounting requires US sales tax rules, your UK one uses VAT, your Spanish one follows the tax rules and guidance for Spain. All of this can be achieved by utilising the localisation functionality of Business Central, but you may end up with different environments and/or different tenancies based on how your group IT is set up.
Wave 2 2020 brings some small menu description changes to increase clarity around what option does what.
For example, there were a few instances of the word “Navigate” in the menu which depending on location did slightly different things.
Wave 2 2020 has a new feature where you can check if there are errors in your journal as you are creating them, rather than finding them when you try to post the journal.
To enable this on a journal in the journal batch screen select edit and make sure the “background error check” is enabled.
One of the biggest buzz phrases in computing over the past few years has been AI (artificial intelligence). While it may give the impression of a fully autonomous computer that runs the world it can, in fact, relate to many aspects of the way that various processes can be automated. When running a business, this can be a big deal, and there is no reason that small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) should miss out on the advantages that AI has to offer. Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 Business Central has fully fledged AI features, making the latest innovative tech available to you.
Software solutions for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) come in many shapes and sizes, but when choosing the right one for your circumstances, cost-effectiveness and functionality must always be top of your tick-list. The reason Dynamics 365 is such a popular choice for SMBs is that it is highly adaptable and configurable, and the way it integrates with the cloud-based software suite Office 365 is a particularly good example.
