Amidst all the hassle and disturbance caused by COVID-19, Microsoft rolled out the most recent and upgraded version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Released in April 2020, the new update came out with exciting features that have made the tool smarter than ever.

Designed for business enthusiasts who need to streamline their operations and seek accelerated growth, the new update is a comprehensive solution that benefits business in all spheres. The release wave 1 was all about digital capabilities for enhanced business performance when it comes to making entries and data accessibility.

Without taking much of your time, let us quickly explore the features in detail that makes it compelling to plan for Dynamics 365 Business Central Update.

Usability at its best

One of the most significant features that you find with Dynamics 365 Business Central release wave 1 is the role explorer. It allows you to search for features along with the advantage of non-interactive printing. On top of this, you can work on UI customizations and could even access the hidden fields on the pages.

Some of the other features include go-to records, page improvement for pages with multiple parts, bookmarking, category definition, as well as easy data entry and filters option for accessibility.

Improved Application Benefits

The next reason why most small and medium enterprises are leaning towards Dynamics 365 Implementation Services is using resources in purchase documents. It allows you to send documents to your contacts, receives goods that you have ordered, and even cancel shipments for products not required i.e. change orders capabilities.

Enhanced Service for administrators/partners

Dynamics 365 Business Central Support team has come up with advanced features, such as integrating the common data service. Also, it has enabled the users to manage access permissions through Microsoft 365 admin center.

Moreover, an admin user can easily cancel sessions for any other user to ensure the maximum security of the data. Dynamics 365 Business Central Release wave 1 comes with AL interface objects that make it a better tool for control on data.

Aside from these features, there are some other aspects of the update that makes it a more robust organizational tool.

  • First of all, it allows you to keep track of purchase orders by generating over-receipts in case of oversupply of the inventory. This helps to avoid sending extra supplies back to the supplier, which would lead to increased costs at the vendor’s end.
    Business Central can now assign new fields on purchase orders such as over-receipt quantity and code within the defined limit of 10 percent of the original order. Moreover, it requires the approval of the order before the over-receipt is generated.
  • Also, the upgraded version of the business central allows direct printing options for documents and reports. This only needs setting email printers which the user can choose when a print is required. Also, if you need label-printing as a separate process while packing slips are processed on a second printer, it allows you to do so easily.
  • With the new upgrade, you can easily explore the application with a “show more” feature. This includes easy access to related cards from the current list you are viewing, such as quickly gaining access to sales invoices from the customer list page or customer card.
  • Last but not least, the latest bank reconciliation page has been improved to enhance the efficiency of this task. Also, the new screen layout is easy to track transactions and gives you improved access to information.
