by | May 6, 2019 | Dynamics 365 Business Central, Dynamics NAV

Directions North America, Microsoft’s annual Dynamics 365 Business Central partner event, kicked off Sunday, May 5 in sunny Las Vegas. While it may have been bright outside, inside it was all cloud. Toby Bowers, Senior Director of World Wide Business Applications and Industry at Microsoft, kicked off the event with Microsoft’s vision of the Digital Transformation – products and applications that will empower employees, engage customers, transform products, and optimize operations.

Digital Transformation - Systems of Intelligence

Since Dynamics 365 launched in 2016, thousands of businesses have transitioned to the cloud, taking advantage of predictable costs, consistent updates, anywhere, anytime usability, and business insights. Additionally, Dynamics 365 Business Central offers more functionality and apps built to power industry innovation through Machine Learning, Business Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence, and forward-thinking.

As more clients transition to Dynamics 365, Microsoft has continued to make updates to the product based on user response. An announcement was made that highlighted a few of the new features in Business Central:

  • Dynamically visible dimensions
  • Cannot enter the quantity on documents if the item number is not filled
  • View comments on approvals
  • Surface CRM synchronization issues to relevant role centers

  • Possibility to select multiple items in sales document
  • Predetermined quote valid until date in a sales quote
  • Copy dimensions from customer when creating new job
  • Work date indicator
  • Refreshed role centers

We also heard from Mike Ehrenberg, Technical Fellow at Microsoft, who gave an overview of Business Central’s stable, modern, productive user interface that is leading the way in ERP. Apps are being developed that are faster and more efficient, enhancing the functionality of Business Central.
