Business value

Every business tailors the documents that they send out to customers, especially outgoing documents such as shipments and return orders. Use Word as the document authoring tool to easily modify layouts of these reports.

Feature details

You can now export the document layout for Sales Shipments (Report 1308) and Return Orders (Report 1309). Simply modify the layouts in Word and import them back into Business Central to use next time you send a shipment or return order.
