Business value

Users save time, and they benefit from not having to switch between apps when they can initiate collaborative tasks directly from Business Central. By choosing to share a compact card instead of only a hyperlink to a record, recipients gain more context and are able to act faster on business data.

Feature details

The Business Central web client provides a Share menu that includes an action to Share to Teams. When sharing, a link to the current page or record is automatically added to the message composition area in the Share to Teams page.

Starting in 2022, users can share a preview of the link as a compact and elegant card that summarizes the record. They can choose between sending only the link or both the link and the card in the message.

The outcome is similar to pasting a Business Central link into the message composition box in Microsoft Teams.
