Here’s a great time saving function to find entries in Business Central


There is a great time saving function in Business Central, that you can add to your homepage, to find posted documents from across the application, without the requirement to drill through the other records first.

Imagine that a customer or supplier is on the phone and you need to find a copy of their invoice quickly, or you need to see all the transactions involved with a serial/lot number from the homepage in just a few clicks.

Of course, you can get everything you need by drilling into the customer/supplier/stock item, then get the transaction listing and so on, but we have a method that will speed up the process for you.

What do I do?

You can either search for “Find Entries” or use the Find Entries function on the Actions menu on your homepage.

It is possible to search info about:

  • Documents (either the customer’s or your own reference)
  • Business Contacts
  • Item References (serial and lot numbers)

  • If you are scan in your supplier invoices you can then get to the original invoice pdf, which is attached to the invoice record.
  • If you want to find all related entries for documents with Deferrals, only fill in the “Document No.”and leave the “Posting Date” blank.
