Microsoft has heard Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management user’s requests for configurable business documents loud and clear. With Word and Excel templates available for Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management in the fall 2020 release, users can now customize printable business documents using Microsoft Office.
These predefined documents are available in both Office and Excel and can be launched directly from Dynamics 365, altered, and saved back into the program. Templates available include:
- Sales order confirmation
- Sales order packing slip
- Sales quotation
- Sales quotation confirmation
- Sales advance invoice
- Collection letter note
- Vendor invoice document
- Payment advice
- Purchase order packing slip
- Picking list
- Bill of lading
Two features related to the configurable documents are currently in public preview – direct printing and PDF Conversion. The general availability date is to be announced.
Direct printing will allow you to print any of these documents directly from Dynamics 365, including batch processing which will allow you to print multiple documents at the same time. The conversion to PDF feature will allow you to save any Excel or Word document directly as a PDF using the electronic reporting destination set up.
To make the PDF conversion option available in the current Finance instance, open the Feature management workspace, and turn on the Convert Electronic Reporting outbound documents from Microsoft Office formats to PDF feature.
If you have questions or would like to learn more about this feature, please reach out to Stoneridge Software.
