    Can we have a System Indicator in Business Central?

    Suggested by David RoysNew 3
    Category: Other

    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.

    Larger Item Description Field

    Suggested by Brian DokterPlanned 10
    Category: Inventory

    I have a client who would sign up today for D365 Financials if the Item Description field was larger.  right now it appears to be limited to 50 characters.  He need it to be at least 1000 characters.


     


    I am aware of the extended text availabliity, but these also are limited to 50 characters and to enter the description they need 50 characters at a time is a poor work around.


    Thanks.

    Be able to copy/export Account Schedules

    Suggested by Chris ScottPlanned 9
    Category: Reports and Business Intelligence

    We often run the same financial report in slightly different versions, such as an detailed income statement and a summary income statement.  It would save a lot of time if we could simply copy an Account Schedule and edit it, rather than building an account schedule from scratch. 


    In a multi-company scenario, it would also help to be able to export account schedules from one company and import them into another company.

    Have a way to import Item images

    Suggested by Jennifer ReinhardtPlanned 0
    Category: Inventory

    Currently we can't import in images with items in Dynamics 365 for Financials so the process currently is to open every item and then the image can be imported.  The following suggestion was made on Forums:
    If we can have a folder in OneDrive specifically for images, so we can put images with the Item Number as the file name and then it can match it up if it finds inventory with the same name, if no inventory with matching name it would take the images and move it to a rejected images folder, of even generate a log of the matched and rejected.

    It would be great if Business Central had the About This Page (Zoom) functionality so that we could be able to see page details.

    Export to Excel

    Suggested by Natalie LemkePlanned 2
    Category: Financial Management

    Recommendation to add “Export to Excel” as core feature to all page layouts (consistent with Dynamics NAV 2017).  This is one of the key selling features that is repeatedly messaged regarding Dynamics products: that users have access to the familiar “Microsoft feel”. In Dynamics 365 for Financials, it is clear Finance users want access to data to model, analyze, and aggregate without entering an “editable” worksheet.  This is helpful for AR Customer reconciliations (export Customer Ledger Entries) or exporting the working items related to an Invoice to export Invoice Line information.  Additionally, this is valuable once a list of Posted Sales Invoice OR Posted Purchase Receipt documents is filtered, to export the filtered set for ad hoc analysis/reporting.

    Publish more data for PowerBi, specifically for Dimensions report

    Suggested by Ben BoltePlanned 1
    Category: Reports and Business Intelligence

    We would like to be able to do reporting in PowerBi on Dimensions.  Currently, the dimension set ID field from table 20 is not published on page 20 that we can publish to PowerBi.   


    This would make reporting much easier with Excel and PowerBi.

    Companies are from physical and transaction based products to subscription based services. A Modern cloud based ERP/Financial solution should support management and invoicing of subscription services

    It would be useful to be able to use the "Saved Views" function like the one existing in Dynamics NAV.

    Thanks.
