Additional email options have been added to Business Central.
Previously a single email account was used to send all documentation from, but now, several options have been added so that, for example, you can specify that all users send sales documents from one email account, and purchase documents from a different one.
A new feature has been added to Business Central where you can set up to be emailed notifications on changes made to selected fields.
Yes, you could utilise the standard audit log to track changes to fields within the system but this added feature allows you to know about it as soon as it has happened.
There is a mapping function in Business Central that will pop out a map showing the location or directions to the locations. This will be for address 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, so 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.
