Appsource results in your search engine
As you well know, the ALT + Q command activates the Business Central search engine. This search engine, which incorporates the artificial intelligence of Cortana Intelligence, performs contextual and intelligent searches. This means that not only shows you results by the combination of words you have entered, but also prioritizes them according to criteria such as: profile of work, open page from which the search is performed, etc.
With the new release, the search engine will gain potential and now in searches will show relevant results available in Appsource. This means that if you have a concern that does not solve the standard product, you will not have to perform tedious investigations since the ERP will suggest you in the same search engine applications depending on the actions you want to perform.
But that’s not the end of the news related to the search engine, since they have also expanded the additional search terms. As sure as you have experienced, when you do a search, you often use different terms in your daily life than Business Central uses to name certain entities, such as “item” instead of “product. Now from Triangle we can add alternative search terms to pages and reports so that it is easier for you to find what you are looking for. What additional terms would you like us to incorporate?
Keep in mind that Business Central already has around 200 alternative search terms for certain pages and reports.
If you have worked with Navision or Dynamics NAV, you will be familiar with the concept of auto-save, common in this ERP. But new customers who migrate to Business Central from other ERPs in the market are not sure that their data is stored and secure. For these clients, an intelligent auto-save indicator has been created that visually shows that the data has been saved.
You can find the indicator on the right side of the screen, and change its value when your ERP communicates with the server and saves the data. There are different states: Saved, Saved and Not saved. You’ll see it in Business Central:
