So in this post I would like to countine to talk about how to implement your custom “Share With OneDrive” action in Dynamics 365 Business Central. In fact, Microsoft has given the solution in the Dynamics 365 Business Central Launch Event 2022 Release wave 1.
Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 Wave 1 (version 20) enhanced the integration with Onedrive for Business, the cloud storage service that is included in Microsoft 365. Business Central v20 makes now very easy to store, manage, and share files with other people through OneDrive with a set of predefined actions that you can have on some entities, for example Attachments:
As a user of the Business Central you have some constants you can use to filter or insert values. These constants contain useful values for data manipulation such as
* t / today for date field – return current date
* q / quarter for date field filters – return range of the current quarter
* w / week, m / month, y / year …
Today I had to send a specific email from Business Central from a specific backoffice account. Roberto Stefanetti has written an excellent blog post about Business Central email and email scenarios. Which is fine for the built in processes but I had an entirely new scenario.
I was asked a interesting question yesterday, is there any way to customize the filename when exporting the report?
As you know, with standard feature in Business Central, we can choose Send to… in the Request page of the report. (A request page is a page that is run before the report starts to execute)
