Business value

Businesses often need to send reports to multiple recipients. Business Central now makes it easy to share reports from the Report Inbox and document attachments through OneDrive for Business.

Feature details

To view either a report from the Report Inbox or to open an attachment in the browser, you can now choose the Open In OneDrive action. This action copies the file from Business Central to OneDrive for Business, then opens the file using the online applications for Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, or with OneDrive's file viewer for all other files, such as PDFs.

Open in OneDrive from Attachments.

Want to try it out now? To experience viewing an attachment in the browser, sign in to your Business Central online, open a sales order, and then choose Attachments from the Order menu.
