Business value

Changes to high-risk settings in Business Central can be tracked using the Change Log functionality. Sometimes, however, tracking changes is not enough and you expect to be notified of changes in fields that contain high-risk and business-critical data, such as bank account numbers, company name, and addresses.

Feature details

You can now define a list of fields that contain high-risk and business-critical data that you want to be notified about when they are changed.
