Monitor Field Change in Business Central

Field Monitoring is one of great help for superusers in Business Central. You can now configure a list of fields that contain high-risk and business-critical data that you want to be notified about when they are changed.

Changes to high-risk settings in Business Central can be tracked using the Change Log functionality. But sometime only tracking changes is not sufficient and you expect more like you should be notified of changes in fields that contain high-risk and business-critical data, such as bank account numbers, company name, and addresses.

Now setting a list of fields that contain high-risk and business-critical data is possible and you can be notified about when they are changed.

To start with this feature, Look for Assist Setup, I am using BC18 demo database for below steps.

Although it is not necessary to follow Assist Setup, you can do setup from individual pages. But this will ensure you don’t miss any steps.

Click on Next to start with setup. And follow the steps in leading wizard pages.

If you wish to use Data Classification and already have performed data classification you can enable or continue with individual fields using Monitored Fields Worksheet, in upcoming Wizard pages.

It is necessary to have the Sending and user e-mail setup is completed. Here you can select the email ids as required.

You need to add Fields for monitoring enable and click finish, or you can open the Page later and configure. This will Start the Monitoring and Notification service.

In Next step or you can open this page Monitored Fields Worksheet from Tell Me.

Add your table & fields that you wish to Monitor.

If notify is enabled you will receive the mail, else you can view in Monitored Field Log page. You can use Field Monitoring Setup Page from Action bar, or you can separately open this page from Tell Me.

You need to Start the Field Monitoring Setup, if not already done. If you have used Assist setup it will be Started, in case you are doing Manually from each Page, you will need to visit this Page, Setup your Emails and Start the Service.

Before we Start with Testing, it is strongly recommended you Log Off and Login again to Business Central. As logging starts and ends on Login & Logout of user.

Open the Customer Page and make changes to Name, as above we have setup to log Name field of Customer.

If your all setup is OK you should Receive a mail as below.

Some Pages helpful for Field Monitored Service are:

You can Monitor the Mails Status from your Role Centre Cues:

What else you can do for monitoring your data and notifications:

  • If there is a problem sending the email, you can check the detailed information on Email Outbox page.
  • You can view the mail sending record on Sent Emails page.
  • You can view the log of Field Monitoring Setup and Monitoring Fields on Monitored Field Log Entries page.

Hope you enjoyed the information. Will come with more similar information in my next posts. Till then keep exploring, learning and sharing your knowledge with others.

Image Analysis feature in Dynamics NAV 2018

In Dynamics NAV 2018, the Image Analyzer extension uses the Computer Vision API to analyze images that are attached to contact persons and items.

For example, this is useful for items because it lets you build up a stockpile of metadata about what you sell and use it to fine-tune search results when someone is browsing your web shop.

Image Analyzer is free in Dynamics NAV, but there is a limit to the number of items that you can analyze during a certain period of time. By default, you can analyze 100 images per month.

After you enable the extension, Image Analyzer runs each time you import an image to an item or contact person. You will see the attributes, confidence level, and details right away, and can decide what to do with each attribute. If you imported images before you enabled the Image Analyzer extension, you must go to the item or contact cards and choose the Analyze Picture action.

Requirements

There are a few requirements for the images:

  • Image formats: JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP
  • Maximum file size: Less than 4 MB
  • Image dimensions: Greater than 50 x 50 pixels

How to enable Image Analyzer

To enable the Image Analyzer extension, do one of the following:

Method-1 : Open an item or contact card. In the notification bar, choose Analyze Images, and then follow the steps in the assisted setup guide.

 

IA-1

This will launch Image Analyser assisted setup guide, follow the step.

 

IA-2

IA-3

IA-4

Once you are done It will import your image for Analysing.

IA-5

 

Method-2 : Access the Service Connections, and then choose Image Analysis Setup.

IA-5.1

Choose the Enable Image Analyzer check box, and then complete the steps in the assisted setup guide.

IA-5.2

For URL and Key follow these steps:

Click on Computer Vision API Documentation

IA-6

Click on Try Computer Vision API

IA-7

Select your API Computer Vision API and then Get API Key

IA-8

Agree to T & C select your Country/Region and then Next

IA-9

Sign-In with the preferred account sign-in method

IA-10

Once done you will land on page which will have your Endpoint URL and Key

You must add /analyze at the end of the API URI, if it isn’t already there.

IA-11

Enter your Endpoint URL and Key and close the window.

IA-12

Now you import your Image, or select Analyze Picture if already imported

IA-13

This will analyze the Image and provide you with the Attributes.

The Image Analyzer Attributes page displays the detected attributes, the confidence level, and other details about the attribute. Use the Action to perform options to specify what to do with the attribute.

 

This is how you enable and configure your Image Analyzer Service.

 

To see how many analyses you have left in the current period

You can view the number of analyses you’ve done, and how many you can still do, in the current period.

Enter Image Analyzer Setup, and then choose the related link.

The Limit type, Limit value, and Analyzes performed provide the usage information.

 

To stop using the Image Analyzer extension

Enter Service Connections, and then choose Image Analyzer Setup.

Clear the Enable Image Analyzer check box.

 

I will come with more details as I proceed.

How to Setup Online Bank Feeds in Madeira

You need to be sure : The default company, CRONUS, that launches when you first log in to Project “Madeira” does not have electronic bank feeds enabled. To tryout this feature you must switch to trial Company “My Company“.

In Project “Madeira” you can connect to most of the online banks and download electronic bank feeds for use in bank reconciliation, avoiding tedious, manual reconciliation, reducing errors, and ensuring that your data is refreshed on a frequent basis.

When you log into MyCompany for the first time, a Company Setup wizard will guide you through setting up the basic company information, including using a bank feed service.

Dont forget to select “Use Bank Feed Service” in Company Setup Page to enable this Service.

You can Manage Bank Accounts & Feeds from Bank Account List Page.

BankStatementService-1

If you enable “Use Bank Feed Service” in Company Setup Page, a new section displays in the ribbon as shown in above screenshot with actions so that you can create a new bank account in Project “Madeira” based on the online bank feed, link already existing bank accounts to online bank feeds, unlinking online bank account feeds, or set up automatic download of feeds on a regular schedule.

When you reconcile bank accounts, you can download bank feeds on demand, as well as process automatically downloaded feeds if you have set up already.

In the Payment Reconcilliation Journal, you can import bank statements based on your bank feeds, and Project “Maderia“ will automatically suggest how payments are applied to ledger entries. You can change the application before you post.

Alternatively, you can import bank statements to the Bank Account Reconcilliation window and reconcile the statements with your ledger entries there.

I will come up with more details in my upcoming posts, till then keep practicing and Learning.
