BC #LifeHacks 109: Change Check Layout

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central can indeed print paper checks… The default layout is called “Check”… and it’s a single stub and a single check. In my experience, most businesses don’t use this layout… so how do you change it to match your layout?

Below is a very brief write up to make this change using the additional out of the box options for Business Central.

I would like to say that the real solution to this is to pay your vendors electronically, but we can save that debate for a different day 🙂

BC #LifeHacks 182: Combine or Merge Vendor Records

Have you ever noticed that you have multiple records in Business Central for the same Vendor? Perhaps the vendor sent an updated W9… and someone didn’t realize the vendor was already in the system, so they created a new vendor… or maybe they are a DBA and someone just searched by the wrong name… so, well… now you have two vendors for the same account. There are a lot of reasons this happens… and when it does, it can be frustrating, or at very least, cause lots of extra work!

Worse yet… what if those duplicates have transactions against them… so now you are stuck with 2 vendor records (or maybe even more) for the same vendor… UGH!

Well, you are in luck! There is a way to merge those master records and maintain all of your history!

BC #LifeHacks 147: Edit Posted Transaction Descriptions

Have you ever posted a transaction… and just before clicking the post button you realize something was wrong in your description? But your mouse click was faster than your eyes… Yeah, me too. It just seems inevitable that no matter how much I try to make sure that I get it right… check, check again… triple check… I misspelll something, or just simply get it wrong. Ugh. When this happens, you may have just ‘rolled with it’ or even posted a correcting entry. Same here… There has to be a better way to handle this… and THERE IS!!

Below we will walk through a MUCH better way to handle these situations… you will LOVE IT!

BC #LifeHacks 183: Import Multiple Inventory Images at Once

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central offers the ability to add images to inventory items. The process is pretty straight forward form the inventory item card but what if you have MANY inventory items and you want to add photos to them all? That could take a long time to process if you do them one by one.

Problem solved! With the April 2019 release, you can now add these images in bulk. Let’s take a look at how this is done.
