BC #LifeHacks 183: Import Multiple Inventory Images at Once

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central offers the ability to add images to inventory items.

BC #LifeHacks 122: Change Which App is Used When Making a Phone Call

As you may know, clicking on a phone number withing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central will prompt you to make a phone call.  This is pretty cool to me and is a big time saver!

Generally businesses are using Skype for Business, and upon install, this becomes the default application for invoking phone calls.  But with the increasing development on Teams, and the growing desire to change from Skype for Business to Teams… how do you tell the software to use Teams for phone calls instead of Skype?

How Many Dimensions can I use in Business Central?

Dynamics 365 – Business Central using dimensions instead of additional segments for General Ledger analysis and reporting.

Some examples of dimensions are Department, Territory, Region, Sales Campaign, Project, Asset ID, etc.

With dimensions, because of the way they are presented in the system, there is a misconception about how many dimensions an organization can use in their system.
