      Option to merge multiple pdf files into one document

      Suggested by Johannes WikmanNew 2
      Category: Reports and Business Intelligence

      Our users want to batch print Sales Invoices. In WinClient we could solve that, but now when running WebClient only (SaaS) we're having different troubles.

      Since we need to use the configured Custom Report Layouts, we have to print the invoices one a time.
      If we call Report.Run one at a time, the user only gets the last pdf file
      If we saves all pdfs into a zip and sends that to the browser, it's getting complicated for the user:
      - They first need to unzip
      - Then they need to print the reports:
      ○ one at a time
      ○ Or 15 (default Windows Limit) at a time by right-clicking if they got Adobe Reader installed
      ○ Or through a third party application if they want to print all in a go

      To enable us to create user friendly apps we need a "Merge PDF Files" feature in the application, either as a built in platform function or as a codeunit wrapper around a new .NET dll.

      And please, don't suggest that we should use Azure Functions for this. We've got a working Proof of Concept for joining pdfs, but it shouldn't be the solution for this. A lot of users and partners will have the same issues if this is not solved. There must be tons of reasons of not doing this as an Azure function, let me know if you really need some more arguments on this than the obvious.

      Batch printing with different Custom Report Layouts

      Suggested by Johannes WikmanNew 0
      Category: Reports and Business Intelligence

      When printing reports that have a custom report layout that is configured per record (e.g. different custom "Sales Invoice" report layouts per Customer) the report must be printed per record (eg. per "Sales Invoice Header" record). Otherwise the custom report layout will be ignored.

      The users are getting confused by the different layouts being printed when they are printing one or several invoices.

      A solution would be (as we've solved it in the past) to change the printing of "sales invoices" (and other reports that's affected by the same scenario) so that it will only print if a single record is being printed (use SetRecFilter) and that the batch printing from the MenuSuite is a new report that is calling the other reports for one record at a time.
      But running this solution on SaaS will give us new challenges since we cannot print several reports in one go from the web client (see Idea https://experience.dynamics.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=596127fd-0b18-e911-9461-0003ff68ee33 ), so that needs to be fixed first.

      The current API https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics-nav/fin-graph/resources/dynamics_salesorder is not usable out of the box for webshop owners because it doesn't have shipment adress support.

      BC / Rapid Start / Quicker Setup

      Suggested by JEAN-NOEL PATROUILLAULTNew 0
      Category: Data Migrations

      Hello

      We created a rapid start package with table #81.
      We have unselect all fields with the "clear included" option.
      We checked only the followings fields : 1,51,2,3,4, 5, 38 and 76.
      We tried to change the process order for fields 38 and 76.
      in order to presever the due date, we need to populated in first the document date.
      So we are using the button "move up" in Action in order to move the field 76 upper.

      The process is very long because we manually need to repeat this action many time as needed.

      Suggestions :
      - have a shortkey for move up or down a field
      - let us modify the process order field manually
      - drag and drop the field

      thanks

      GETSELECTIONFILTER as a built in function on every page

      Suggested by Gunnar GestssonNew 0
      Category: Financial Management

      Today we need to create an External procedure on every page, like

      [External]
      PROCEDURE ADVSetSelectionFilter@10008900(VAR SalesInvoiceHeader@10008900 : Record 112);
      BEGIN
      CurrPage.SETSELECTIONFILTER(SalesInvoiceHeader);
      END;

      This should be built in to every page similar to the GETRECORD function.
      We should be able to do

      IF SalesInvoices.RUNMODAL = ACTION::LookupOK THEN BEGIN
      SalesInvoices.GETSELECTIONFILTER(SalesInv);
      SalesInv.FINDSET;
      REPEAT
      AddToQueueType(SalesInv,SetQueueType,FALSE);
      UNTIL SalesInv.NEXT = 0;
      END;

      Where SalesInvoices is Page 143 and SalesInv is Record 112

      Apply Cumulative Update with setup.exe

      Suggested by XAVIER GARONNATNew 0
      Category: Financial Management

      Hi,

      Applying a cumulative update (either for binary and/or apps) require some skills and also powershell scripting.

      Could-you please add an option on "setup.exe" to apply a cumulative update on an existing installation with option like "/updatebinaryonly", "/updateapplicationonly" and "/updateall" ?

      Thanks,
      Xavier.

      Currently we are unable to adjust columns width in dynamics 365 business central, as compared to RTC.
      It becomes difficult to View/Copy data from fields in List/ListPart Pages.

      Use Standard Cost from Stockkeeping Units in all cases (for specific - Variant Code etc.).

      Suggested by AC Petr JUnder Review 0
      Category: Inventory

      Why is there use the Standard Cost from Item and not from Stockkeeping Units (for this specific - Variant Code)?

      See scenario:

      Set up the Inventory Setup:
      - Automatic Cost Posting = TRUE
      - Expected Cost Posting to G/L = TRUE
      - Average Cost Calc. Type = Item & Location & Variant.

      Use Item = 1001
      - Costing Method = Standard
      - Standard Cost = 100
      - Replenishment System = Prod. Order
      Create new Stockkeeping Units:
      - Variant Code, Location Code
      - Standard Cost = 10.
      - Replenishment System = Prod. Order

      Create new Prod. Order for this – Item, Variant Code, Location Code.
      Use Output Journal to produce the Item (Inventory Account (Interim) = 10).

      Run Change status (Finished) Prod. Order and then run Adjust Cost - Item Entries. After that:
      - Inventory Account (Interim) = 0
      - Inventory Account = 100

      Why is there use the Standard Cost from Item and not from Stockkeeping Units (for this specific - Variant Code)?

      If exist Stockkeeping Units for particular Item we suggest to use Standard Cost from Stockkeeping Units in all cases (for specific - Variant Code, etc.).

      Expand External Document No. on Sales Header

      Suggested by Christian MützeNew 0
      Category: Sales

      Hi,

      we ran into an issue with the field length of the External Document No. (Field 100) on the Sales Header table within a Multi Tenant environment for a live customer.

      The length of 35 is not sufficient for their business. They would gain more from a length of approx 60.
      We would therefore like to suggest, to review the idea to extend the field length of this field to a text50 or text60 as we can't extend it via extensions right now.

      It would be a really nice feature to be able to copy an existing item when creating a new item.
