Business Central Images to a Canvas Power App Gallery

For those who missed it I did a session for BC Tech Talk last year: During that session I showed how to get a single image for an item record with an API call (35mins and beyond). The method was very simple to create a custom connector for the standard Picture API and just add […]

Business Central Month End with Power Automate

A month end procedure is a regular topic to be covered when implementing finance with D365 BC. Some finance systems throw a user into a defined routine but with D365 BC it’s much more simplistic. To remove the need for users to be experts wouldn’t a defined routine be useful? Here is the goal: Create […]

PowerApps biz card reader to Business Central

This one comes with a premium as the PowerApps business card reader isn’t included in the license for BC. However, it’s a really good use of AI and something that could be utilised in the right scenario. Ironic that I’m blogging about something that won’t be getting much use right now.

Business Central Demand Forecast – needs something extra!

Have you ever looked at the demand forecast in D365 BC and thought that is missing features which actually make it usable! I mean look at it…but actually look at it: Yes I can toggle the matrix view to alter the dates and change to component items instead of sales but if I want to […]
