Business Central is ready to adapt to the needs of complex SMB organizations by organizing multiple companies across environments. While most employees are bound to a single company, some users need to view, edit, and compare data across companies. The 2022 release wave 2 makes it easier to get an overview of the companies and environments you have access to, and to rapidly switch contexts.
- Visual cues in the app bar help you to quickly understand which company and environment you're currently working in, and include the company badge if one was specified for a company.
- Activate the company switcher pane from anywhere in Business Central, either from the app bar or using the Ctrl+O keyboard shortcut.
- Search for companies you have access to, grouped by environment, including production and sandbox environments within your organization.
- Switch company in the current browser tab or open the selected company in a new tab to multitask or compare data side by side.
The experience and capabilities may vary between Business Central online and on-premises.
Changes to the company badge
The company badge provides a colorful and compact visual indicator so that users can understand at a glance which context they are working in. To support the company switcher, administrators can now specify a badge to have a specific color and up to 6 characters—all from the Company Information page.
