Business value

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.

Feature details

  • Visual cues in the app bar help to quickly understand which company and environment you are currently working in.
  • Activate the company switcher pane from anywhere in Business Central, either from the app bar or using a 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.
