Business value

With a growing and diverse workforce learning to use the web client (and using it to complete business tasks quickly and reliably), we are continuing to optimize the client for improved usability.

Feature details

When vertical screen space is reduced, the header along the top of the client automatically resizes to a compact, 8-pixel height, freeing up more space for data on the screen. This improvement is available only for Business Central online.

When navigating submenus in the action and navigation bars, user interaction is more consistent and predictable in terms of hover and click behaviors.

When selecting multiple rows in a list, users can freely activate the context menu for any of the selected rows without losing row selection. Choosing any action from the row context menu continues to act upon that row, not the set of selected rows.
