Would you like to know an easier way to choose and compare stock items in Microsoft Business Central?
2 March 2022
Microsoft Business Central has the facility to import an image against a stock item so that choosing an item can be a lot easier if you can compare to what it looks like.
This is fine on an individual basis but what happens if you need to add an image to a lot of items at the same time, well you can use the batch import facility.
How do I choose and compare stock items in Microsoft Business Central?
For our walk through we have 3 items with no images:
We just need to get our images and save them with filenames that are the same as the stock item code/number, as below:
You then need to zip the images into a single zip file, in this example lets just call it images.zip
In Microsoft Business Central search for “Inventory Set Up”
The from that menu select “Import Item Pictures”
- Upload your Zip file
- Decide whether to overwrite an existing image on any of the items
- Review the matching
- When you are happy, select import pictures
The status next to 3 in the image above will change to Completed and you can review your item list, which now has images.
A very quick and useful way to update your item images on mass.
