Personalizing Screens In Dynamics 365 Business Central

Originally posted on August 7, 2019

Are you looking to "personalize" or modify a window in Dynamics 365 Business Central? Did you know Business Central allows users to personalize their screens within the application?

Lets take the customers window for example, your layout is the list option and you'd like to remove or add a field.  Out of the box (OOTB) I find there's too much information being displayed so the first thing I show users during an implementation is how to personalize their screens.  

Screen shot below shows what the window looks like OOTB.  Lets remove some columns and even add some that I'd like to see.

1.  Click on the gear in the top right of the window, then select Personalize.

2.  To add more fields to the window click on 'More'

3.  To add more field to the window click on '+ Field'

4.  The fields that are available to add to the page are now shown off to the right.  You can simply select and drag and drop into the Customer list window.  Place them where you'd like them to be.  If you'd like to remove a field just hover over the field name and click on the red carrot icon and then select hide.

5.  Once you've completed your personalization you can click 'Done' and your settings will be saved.  

Delete User Personalization's

Now that you have your personalization's saved there may be a time where you'd like it to go back to the OOTB settings.  I've also seen issues where users displays won't be correct and to fix the issue use this method.
To set the window back to OOTB settings navigate to the Delete User Personalization window.

You'll have to know what page number you're looking for.  The simple way to find this is to review the URL when you have the Customers window open.  In this case it has 'page=22' within the URL which will correspond with the next step.

Within the Delete User Personalization window find and delete out the line that corresponds to the Customers, page ID 22 for the user that needs this completed.  Now the customers page will go back to the OOTB settings and you can personalize it again if needed.

My DynamicsCon experience

DynamicsCon is a first-of-its-kind, free virtual learning experience for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (D365) and Power Platform users and professionals. Although it came out of the blue it was put together by a stellar team and it was highly successful in my opinion.  In my opinion this event was successful because there was a need in the Dynamics community for high quality, free learning. DynamicsCon required all sessions to be prerecorded, and on top of that there was a live chat during every session where the presenter could interact with the audience. This was very new and very exciting for the attendees, especially during this world where all conferences are being cancelled or switched to virtual.  Sessions I attended While there were several sessions within the Dynamics 365 Business Central track I only attended day 1 for the functional sessions. Below is a list of the sessions I attended. I've been consulting for D365BC for three years now and I was able to learn so much from each

How to use MICR fonts in Dynamics 365 Business Central AND modify the check layout

Being able to purchase completely blank check stock for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC) is a plus, however you'll have to know how to configure the system so the MICR line prints on the check stock. Microsoft added the MICR checks functionality in early 2020 and using it can be a challenge to use if you're not familiar with modifying layouts in BC. I'll walk you through the process of being able to use this functionality. I will be showing you how to do this within my Production environment test company. I will then show you how to update your production company once you've completed your configuration and modified the check layout.  You should also test within a test company and test with your bank prior to updating in production company. If you're only modifying check layout and not using MICR line then you should be ok not testing with your bank first.  Bank Account Card First step is adding the bank account and transit numbers to the bank account ca

Community Summit 2020 is next week

  Community Summit North America is set to kick off next week October 7-9, 2020.  Community Summit is one of my favorite conferences of the year. This year is sure going to be different since it's going to be held virtually. Not being able to hug my friends and meet many others in person is going to be the hardest part of attending virtually for me. Please give us speakers grace and know that we have all prepared for countless hours to present; however presenting virtually is going to be such a different experience since we won't get to see all your smiling faces in the crowd!  Community One of the biggest things about Community Summit is the "community." Each UG has their own community, but lately the lines are becoming more blurred. Since Microsoft has introduced the Power Platform and it's capabilities across all Dynamics products, I've been able to learn from many other community users, consultants, and MVPs. Bringing people together and being able to lear
