Recently Microsoft releases plan for major version of Microsoft Dynamics 365. This blog post actually focused on those features which I am looking forward to and may be every one in community.
Partners can add keys to base tables and table extension
Does anybody remembered this points which I raised in year 2017 on GitHub and finally this is going to add in April 2021 and I am looking forward to it as it is not supported and I have restructure the app.
This feature is everybody awaiting because if we need to change in any base app report then we need to copy that report ,make changes and use report substitution to display the customize report. Looking forward for new report extension object where in one can change layout and dataset.
In Year 2016 I wrote this blog post for updating the dimension and not it is going to be add as feature in Business central. This will help end users for updating the incorrect dimensions.
Above all it from April 2021 onwards Business Central will be available in India
Apart from above lot of new features are added in upcoming version of business central
As of now this feature is need to enabled from Feature management
This features will helpful to financial users to check the issue before posting. Before this feature we have Test Report and Preview Posting to check the issues before posting. Advantage of this feature is that this feature is can be enabled for specific batch .
To enable this feature on batch go to General Journal batch and enabled this feature for required batch.
Once this will enabled on batch this will show journal check on journal screen as follows
Enter the transaction in journal and if entry is erroneous then it will show the error as below
For more details of the error you can click Issues total to see the details of issues
Even this factbox shows the the lines which shows which lines are correct and incorrect.
Hoe this will help you to deal with financial journals validation.
By writing this I feel that clock is running faster and till the time we are utilizing the features of Wave 1 2020 more new features are planned and about to release in upcoming version Wave 2 2020.
There are plenty of features are planned for Wave 2 2020 but will list here what are the features I am looking for.
Database access intent changed to read-only for frequently used reports As business required faster access to the information so to speed up default database access change to Read-only.
Notify users of high-risk changes in selected setup fields :- This features means we can make list of fields from master table and get notified when someone changes.
Business Central in Microsoft Teams :-Integrate Microsoft team with Business Central.
Page Inspector supports temporary tables :- With this update, the inspection pane now displays valuable record information also for pages that are implemented to use temporary tables. Information about the current record is displayed in a consistent way and is not different from inspecting pages that use physical source tables.
Data audit system fields are added to every table :- Four New Field will be added in every tables to track the transactions log.
Attach to user session when debugging in sandbox :-Currently, when you debug with the Visual Studio Code AL debugger, you cannot attach to a user session, making it much harder to troubleshoot issues that are dependent on users and user permissions. This feature enables attaching to an active user session on the sandbox.
Debug extension installation and upgrade code :- It is currently not possible to debug extension install or upgrade code by just adding breakpoints and deploying a new application. Instead, some workaround is required to manually trigger the install and upgrade code, possibly commenting out upgrade tags and so on, making it tedious to properly test install and upgrade during development, as well as to troubleshoot issues.
