Business value

We make it easier to get started and unblocked with Dynamics 365 Business Central by providing better tooltip descriptions for sensitive and essential fields.

Feature details

Business Central includes many fields on each page, and the field descriptions, or tooltips, provide a first layer of self-help for users. In this release wave, we improve these tooltips for essential and sensitive fields so that it's easier to learn how to use Business Central. Based on analysis of how tooltips are used, we'll improve and clarify the text to make the descriptions easier to understand. This element of embedded user assistance reduces friction in learning how to use Business Central, which ultimately boosts satisfaction with the product.
