Business Central dimensions – How to add to multiple records at the same time


It can be time consuming to assign default dimensions to items one by one – we have the solution for this.

In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, it is possible to add a Dimension to multiple records at the same time. For example, these records could be General Ledger, Customer, Item, Vendor or FA Cards.

To assign a dimension to many records in one go, you can use the multiple dimension functionality.

How do I do this?

From the List page relating to that record card, you’ll need to do a multi select for the records that need to be updated, as shown below:

Then from the submenu, locate the Dimension Multiple action.

The example shown below is from a GL List:

Then just add the missing dimension and dimension value and any rules. All the records that have been selected will get updated.
