We have a client that has over 80 companies and one group regularly needs to switch between seven companies. It is essential for them to be able to quickly tell which company they are in. The BC Web Client shows the company name on Role Center and List Pages but does not show it on Card pages. There also does not appear to be any way to change colors or offer any other visual cue to help people to see which company they are in quickly. Can I suggest we include something within the UI that will show the system indicator. Here is my mockup of what it could look like (See https://github.com/Microsoft/AL/issues/3184 for screen shots.). You could use the existing system indicator settings on the Company Information. It would be really, really nice if you could add the ability to set the color instead of picking from a set of pre-canned styles.

A combination of a selectable tint color (like in Reporting services where you can pick from a list of names or enter an RGB value) which would replace the default Teal, and displaying the company name in the title bar for all page types would be perfect.

Thank you for your feedback. This is a great suggestion! We will consider this in our roadmap.

  • Also need a shortcut to easily switch companies, one click vs. multiple clicks. Shortcut key and/or click on System Indicator name to switch companies
  • Every great idea is actually based on already proven experience. This system identifier on Cards/Pages was so useful in NAV - definitely needs to be brought to BC.
  • This is a very good idea. Would make it easy and solve a lot of issues
  • dose BC have a Web Client ?
  • Yes please make the company visible. In the construction area it is very common to have more then 10 companies in 1 data database.
  • This could also give a clear visual cue whether a Production or Sandbox tenant is currently open. Currently, the visual difference is super small.
  • Following!
