Remember how kiddish 🙂 I was, when I expressed my frustration in LinkedIn because my favorite Dynamics NAV moving from On-Premise to cloud [Dynamics 365 for Financials] and the web client was pathetic? The lack of rich features in web client what we always experienced in Dynamics NAV windows client was pretty repulsive for me.
Things have changed so much since I wrote that and the upcoming features of Microsoft Dynamics Business Central [to be release between October ’18 and March ’19] has really bowled me over.
What Exactly was most prominent feature missing in Dynamics 365 for Financials or Business Central?
For me it was always the absence of classic FlowFilter facility. Mind it, Flowfield was always there. But you didn’t have the power to filter it out with a flowfilter. And I don’t need mention here how SIFT [Sum Index Flow Technology] has helped us in so many situations summarising data very effectively.
Now Business Central Web Client is getting a major revamp with it’s october ’18 release and with my Insider Build, I got to experience few of those features first hand now. What made me happy is the introduction of a filter pane and availability of FlowFilter.
You can check this up with your Business Central instance as well. Open Chart of Accounts [or any screen where there is a possibility of applying Flowfilter], Click on the ALL>Show Filter Panel:
This will open up the filter pane in the left hand side of the screen. The filter pane will have all filter options similar to our windows RTC client. And “Filter Totals By” is our flow filter:
So that was favourite feature of Business Central coming up in october. You can get a comprehensive list of features to be released in october in the below link –
