Real client issue with Checklist or Get Started...whatever you want to call it in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
Disclaimer provided by Microsoft
The checklist is designed to assist customers in onboarding companies to Business Central and assist Partners in the selling process by highlighting features to explore from the checklist. Microsoft relies on partners to bring the relevant checklist items for a given customer if they think the default ones will not suffice, which in most cases they will certainly not.
The very first default checklist item for Business Manager in non-evaluation companies is the "Company details" task, whose purpose is to open a wizard and guide users through/check if their company name is correct.
This wizard has a long history in the product and has previously served multiple purposes. One of these, importing of configuration packages when having created a new company, under certain circumstances. A bug caused this code path to be reached for one of my clients.
It's important to know that the Microsoft has fixed this bug in the wizard, and the fix is included in the 2022 wave 2 major release.

Let me share my client's story with this bug below. I am not the Partner of Record for this client; however, I was assisting with building some reports and they came to me when they started seeing goofy things since I was setting up Global Dimensions the week prior to the issue. It's first important to understand the timeline.
