Microsoft Dynamics 365
I think in general a few things could be introduced to improve Labor standards.
1) consideration of distance. Many other WMS Tier 1 systems include Xyz coordinates on the locations so that distance can be calculated, rather than just using time or work units.
2) Different standards based on the equipment type used. If I am moving product with double pallet forklift versus a wheeled cart with totes, that may require different standards and it does not make sense to manage a bunch of different work templates to do that segregation in all cases.
3) How does non-work time get included in the standard and calculation. For example, Manufacturing execution and Time and attendance use a clock-in and clock-out approach where any time not logged into a job or task is logged as Indirect time which can then affect pay, utilization, etc. Rather than building a manual solution where a warehouse worker uses Time and attendance for daily and shift clock in and out and then the mobile device for processing work, some sort of time management around their entire shift and daily work would make sense. For example, I have to "clock in" to the mobile device so that any time not logged into Work Ids can be calculated separately. I understand the issues with that and being auto logged off scanners based on time outs, etc. but I think a more streamlined approach for this would help the larger distribution warehouses where worker time is granularly tracked.
I agree, these options should be spread more widely throughout BC.
A similar request from one of my customer, Calibri 11 as a default.
Fantastic idea 10 out of 10 points from me
Same here, customer is asking for Callibri 11 by default in the email composer. Any option to configure these in personalization would definitely help, this will allow user to configure their default settings.
Regarding this remark:
Business Central Team (administrator)
Thank you for this suggestion! Currently this is not on our roadmap. We are tracking this idea and if it gathers more votes and comments we might consider it in the future.
Business Central Team
How many votes are required for this idea to be added to the roadmap?
Scenario: Configuration Package: export to Excel: in the Excel file decimal fields are text fields.
We also have a customer for whom configured products are the core of their business.
Microsoft should AS MINUMUM advise which tools we should use for regression testing. At the least a shortlist of viable products.
session timeout period
in the on-premise version of Business Central, users get a session timeout after 20 minutes. In the online version this has been adjusted to 2 hours. See https://experience.dynamics.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=68e66d03-9c4f-e911-867a-0003ff68d4ef Can this also be implemented for the onpremise version.
It would make the use of tiles even better if this was also supported
