Business value

This integration is particularly valuable for organizations that provide professional services. It offers a seamlessly integrated solution for managing service tasks, consumption, and financial transactions to benefit service technicians, service managers, and finance teams. It's a powerful solution for managing work orders and consumption in Field Service and efficiently invoicing and fulfilling them in Business Central.

Here you can choose to Import Dynamics 365 Field Service Solution and Enable Dynamics 365 Field Service Connection. To enable users to post the consumption of items and services in Field Service work orders, specify the Project Journal Template and Project Journal Batch that will post consumption or products and services in Business Central.

Because services are expressed in duration in Field Service, specify the Hours Unit of Measure that will convert durations to quantities in Business Central.

You can also specify when work order products and service lines will synchronize to Business Central. For example, they might synchronize when work order lines are used, or when a work order is completed. Choose the appropriate option in the Synchronize work order products/services field.

After work order products and services synchronize to project journals in Business Central, you can choose whether to post the project journals manually, or when work order status is complete, or when work order products or services get used. Choose the appropriate option in the Automatically post project journals lines field.

Choose Finish to set up the integration to Field Service.


Field Service is built on top of Dynamics 365 Sales, so to integrate with Field Service you'll need to set up a connection to Dataverse and enable integration to Dynamics 365 Sales.
