Processing drop shipments in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
I recently had to teach myself how to process drop shipments in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. I was familiar with how the process worked in Dynamics GP and to my surprise there is a few big differences, hence the reason for this blog. Scenario Your customer places an order and it needs to be drop shipped from a vendor. Sales Order Create the Sales Order as you normally would and make sure to check the box for drop shipment. This check box isn't showing out of the box so you'll have to personalize your page. TIP: use Profile (role) to personalize so it affects all users within that role and then each user won't have to personalize their own page. Once your Sales Order is created you'll move onto creating a Purchase Order. Purchase Order Start a new Purchase Order and enter in the Vendor Name first. After the Vendor Name is entered move to the Shipping and Payment section and select Ship-To = Customer address and then Customer = Customer matches Sales Order.
