Business value

Businesses that use multiline texts in descriptions on documents such as orders and invoices, in Dataverse or Dynamics 365 Sales, can now synchronize such data to and from Business Central.

Feature details

When you enter work descriptions (multiline texts) on sales quotes, orders, and invoices in Business Central, the descriptions are transferred to the Description field in Dynamics 365 Sales. Shows an invoice in Dynamics 365 Sales with a description transferred from the Work Description.

You can enable or disable synchronization of the Description field while synchronizing posted sales invoices from the user interface and by using customizations for sales orders and quotes.
Shows the Integration Fields Mapping page with the new Work Description field mapping.

Developers can also extend data synchronization to include more multiline text fields in synchronization between Business Central and Dataverse or Dynamics 365 Sales.
