How to avoid erroneous entries in critical fields and tables?

Date: 07.09.2022

Advanced Data Management – Flexible rights management at the field level that prevents errors.

Advanced Data Management is a flexible tool for permission management for both whole tables and specific fields in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV.

The respective users are assigned specific permissions, and you do not need to worry about their editing data they are not allowed to edit, accidentally or otherwise.

This means you avoid users changing master data, for example product, customer or supplier tables, even where it is not appropriate or intended. It is a secure way to limit mistyping in critical fields and tables.

If you’re curious about how to avoid mistakes and make better business decisions based on reliable data, give us a call at +45 3131 0700 – we’ll be happy to set up a demo!

Tip for Business Central – release and reopen multiple documents, simultaneously!

Date: 30.08.2022

Microsoft has delivered another popular update to Dynamics 365 Business Central, version 20.

The new feature gives you a quick overview of the status of your documents. The status is given in list form as to whether the documents are;

  • open
  • pending approval
  • have been invoiced
  • or have been released to the next stage of processing

The current status is marked with different coloured fonts, making it easier to identify whether the documents are open or released.

With clear identification, you have full control over where your documents are in the process. It provides an overview and saves time. It also allows you to work more efficiently, as you can change the status of multiple documents at the same time.

That’s another good reason to update to Business Central version 20!

E-mail policy – who can read your e-mails sent from Business Central?

Date: 27.06.2022

Among the new features of Business Central from Microsoft, it is worth highlighting another smart feature about rights management.

The feature gives administrators control over who can see which emails.

It is not uncommon for several people or teams to work on the same transaction. Some need to draft emails, while others finalise and send emails to customers and suppliers.

By defining user mail policies, administrators gain control over who sees which mails. This is done simply by setting mail viewing policies for each user group.

If you have any questions about setting up in Business Central, feel free to contact our senior consultant, Peter Kretzmann at pkr@profacto.dk or call him on +45 3131 0700 – he’s ready to help you!

Thank you for exciting days at Days of Knowledge 2022 with a fantastic atmosphere

Date: 20.06.2022

Our BC consultant, Ksenia, has just returned from Days of Knowledge loaded with good energy, inspiration and new knowledge about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Days of Knowledge was organized by Directions 4 Partners this weekend in Odense on Funen. An amazing event, which once again was super well arranged with many interesting and exciting topics for the entire Dynamics 365 Partner Community.

Partners from different countries were gathered in one place as a unique opportunity to share knowledge, ideas and networks – a perfect framework to improve the product, and not least to save time by sharing expertise and solutions to challenges we face in our projects.

The days were packed with exciting sessions for Business Central consultants and developers from both ISV, MVP and Microsoft. We got lots of tips and tricks for implementation, new features and best practices. In addition, valuable introduction to relevant technologies such as Power Platform, Azure, Office and AI.

Several ISV partners presented their fabulous products like EDI, Webshop Connectors, POS, WMS etc. Among the presenters were our acclaimed friends such as Continia and ForNav, and were further introduced to new and exciting ISVs, who showed demos of their professional solutions.

It’s great to experience how we strengthen the community by working in the same direction towards a common goal – to make Business Central the best product on the market.

Did you know that you can send emails to colleagues outside of Business Central with an individually tailored subject field?

Date: 06.05.2022

ProFacto has created a new feature, which allows you to control “Subject” in the email sending emails from Business Central.

To create the text for the subject field, you can use content from 2 types of fields:

  1. Configuration Fields (document type)
  2. Global Configuration Fields (company information)

With a relevant headline in the subject field, the recipient quickly gets an insight into what the email is about. It is both user-friendly, efficient and super practical when you need to find back for current email.

In addition, it is possible to insert Cc and Bcc recipients when you configure the email.

That way, you can send an email to a mailbox you have shared with employees who do not have access to Business Central.

If you have any questions about Email Configurations, please reach out to Peter Kretzmann – he is ready to help you!

Do you know how to generate the new file in your erp system?

Date: 26.11.2021

News_Intrastat 2022

New EU legislation means changes in Intrastat. From January 2022, companies must report two new pieces of information per item line:

  • The recipient’s VAT number
  • Country of origin of the product

This means that when your company reports information to Intrastat via upload file on IDEP.web, the current file format must be changed so that it also contains the two new variables.

This places new demands on the built-in solution in NAV, as the old format is no longer supported. We recommend that you report in the new SDF format so that you can extract data and form a file as usual.

You can already report the two new fields in the new file format:
ProFacto has prepared a solution in Dynamics NAV with a functionality to form the file in the new format, which will contain the new information that Statistics Denmark requires.

Should we help you get ready before 1 January 2022, call us on 3131 0700 or write to Jan Boye at jbo@profacto.dk to hear more.

If you want to know more about the new requirements for Intrastat reports, you can download more information here:

Note: The threshold values for the obligation to report to Intrastat from 2022 apply to companies with an annual Intrastat Export of DKK 10 million. and over and Intrastat Import of DKK 13 million. and above.

License update postponed

Date: 07.09.2020

with Microsoft Dynamics ERP

The option for upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central has been postponed – new deadline until October 1, 2021!

Are you ready to upgrade to Dynamics 365 Business Central? Microsoft stops supporting former versions of Dynamics NAV. But the good news is that the opportunity to upgrade to Business Central 14 has been postponed until September 30, 2021.

Dynamics 365 Business Central version 14 is the latest version of Business Central, which offers both a windows client and a web client. Going forward, it will be a web client accessed via a browser. An upgrade to the latest cloud solutions is a change of technology, and the postponement of the conversion deadline improves customers’ ability to prepare for this transition.

If you are not ready for the cloud, you can upgrade your current Dynamics NAV licensing program to Business Central On-Premise until October 1, 2021. That means you will keep the features as today, and at the same time prepared for the latest version of Business Central – at your pace.

We can help you!
