Getting a fast answer to a customer on the status of an order, quickly finding a vendor invoice's due date based on the invoice number, or tracking down a purchase order for an item based on its serial number are of utmost importance in today's fast-paced world.

Feature details

Finding related documents and entries is an existing capability of Business Central that you can use to track entries that are generated during the posting of specific transactions. The Find Entries feature has been available on most pages that display posted document or document entries, but now it's also available on all Role Centers.

Shows Find Entries on Business Manager role center page.

You can easily access the Find Entries feature by using the Ctrl+Alt+Q shortcut key combination anywhere in Business Central.

Shows update Find Entries page.

You can use the Find Entries feature to search in the context of a specific posted document, where it will show entries created for that document. You can also use it for broader searches, such as the following:

  • Search for documents using a posted document number or external document number to find a specific posted or unposted document and related entries.
  • Search for business contacts and business contacts related document or specific document using an external document number.
  • Search for item references using serial or lot numbers to find all documents that include an item with those numbers.

Pages for posted documents and ledger entries, such as the Posted Sales Invoice or Customer Ledger Entries pages, show the general ledger entries related to a specific document or entry, even without using Find Entries page.
