Business value

Clear and precise naming of features and function is important for anyone using an online computer system. It helps with training, onboarding, and day-to-day work. Even though some terms might have historical roots in previous versions of the product, we need to always evolve and execute on the feedback received.

Feature details

Customers told us that the experience and terminology related to navigation in the product would benefit from some clarification. We made improvements to this experience in the previous release and now Business Central 2020 release wave 2 continues this effort. We improved the usability of the service by differentiating various navigation experiences, such as the navigation menu and action bar, to align closer with our customers' expectations.

  • The action previously called Navigate is now Find entries, it gained a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+I), and is searchable via TellMe.
