Customer and Vendor Document Layout in Business Central

In this post we will discuss how to setup sending documents to different contacts, specific contacts to use with certain documents.

I am using BC18 Demo Database.

On Customer Card select Related-> Customer-> Document Layouts.

Here we are setting up different type of document should go to different contacts/e-mail ids.

In above example: Quote will go to my personal id, and Order Confirmation to my organization id.

It is important that email setup is done to use this feature, either is Office 365 or SMTP which ever you use.

Let’s quickly Check the output:

1. Sales Quote

On Quote select Print/Sent-> Send by Email.

2. Order Confirmation

On Sales Order select Print/Send-> Email Confirmation.

You can see different type of documents are picking different e-mail ids of contacts as per our setup done above.

Similarly, you can do for Vendors too:

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.

Auto-insert Recurring Sales and Purchase Lines in Business Central

Today in this post we will see how you can automatically insert frequently used sales and purchases more quickly and conveniently in Dynamics365 Business Central.

I am using BC18 Demo Database.

If your company uses repeat orders for customer and vendors, this feature can be helpful to you.

Open your Vendor Card, Select Related-> Purchases-> Recurring Purchase Lines.

In Recurring Purchase Line Setup, Create Code and way you want them to be available on your Purchase Documents.

Next you need to setup the Card for lines that will be part of this code for Purchase Lines.

Navigate to the Recurring Code Setup Page.

Choose the Card.

Enter the lines associated with this Code, that should be entered on Purchase Lines.

Options on Recurring Code Setup.

** Manual, Will be normal Std. Behavior

** Automatic, Lines will be inserted automatically.

Key in the Vendor Code and press Enter.

This will be helpful if you have single Recurring code setup, as automatic, rest all as manual.

Else Notification will be raised and you have to choose from the list.

** Always Ask, will give you Notification to add.

Key in the Vendor Code and press Enter.

This is helpful when you have multiple setups, and want to choose from the list.

From Notification click on Get Recurring Lines, and select desired code.

Once Lines are inserted on Purchase Lines you can edit the lines as usual in any open orders. Add or Remove Lines, Change the other field values etc.

Similarly, you can setup for Sales Documents too.

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.

Remain safe, take care of your loved ones, put your mask, maintain safe distance and don’t forget to get vaccinated.
