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!

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.

BC #LifeHacks 182: Import Multiple Inventory Images at Once

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

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.

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.

In settings up a new instance of #Dyn365BC, settings up dimensions is a critical piece to the puzzle.  How do you want to measure profitability?  What type of non GL information would you like to track?

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.
