It is really good how the address fields will close up on e.g. a Sales Invoice when printed if an address field is empty. However, including the Contact Name in this is an issue. A lot of sites will want the Contact Name in a different field from the addresses. In fact, in the Sales Invoice, there is a label for Contact Name - but you can't select the data field separately.

Result: You end up with another part of the Address showing in your Contact field if the Contact Name is empty.

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 will consider it in the future. Best regards, Business Central Team



I get what Microsoft is trying to do, but it creates major problems. The "sold-to" information on a sales order or purchase order is legal information (it is a contract). By having a fluid address system, you can't lock down the 'contact' (company or individual) information properly.
