Business value

For some organizations, users often have access to multiple companies, either in the same tenant or in another tenant environment, such as in another country (a sales subsidiary) or a completely different tenant (an accountant's clients' companies). Having an easy overview of these companies and an easy way of accessing them is key for these users to work efficiently. The company hub in Business Central gives you just that.

Feature details

The company hub in Business Central gives you a list of the companies you work in. You can easily add new companies by just providing a URL and a name for the company. The list of companies contains a few KPIs for the company that is displayed for the user if they have the needed access. You also have a list of assigned user tasks for a given company, so you can keep track of work required for each company.

The company hub is an extension that gives you either a dedicated Company Hub home page (if you use one tenant as the main access point) or a similar task page if you use the company hub from within a company where your role requires you to have a different home page. Both have the same features and the same easy access to the companies you work in.

If you use Dynamics 365-Accountant Hub today, Accountant Hub is deprecated in this release wave. The company hub supports the same features, and we recommend that you use the company hub as a replacement for Accountant Hub.

It's easy to migrate to the company hub from Accountant Hub. When you have installed the company hub in a Business Central tenant, use the Edit in Excel feature on the Client list page to export data from Accountant Hub and open a similar Excel spreadsheet in the company hub. Then, use copy and paste to move the data and finally publish the spreadsheet from the company hub to get the data into your Business Central. For more information, go to the See also section.

Important

Integration with the company hub is not supported in on-premises deployments of Business Central.
