Good to know

  • Minimum requirements for Business Central Administration Center
    We have updated system requirements with the list of browsers supported by the Administration Center. When signing in from an unsupported browser that delivers a significantly degraded experience, administrators will immediately see a message that prevents them from continuing to the Administration Center. For example, it is not possible to access the Business Central Administration Center from Internet Explorer.
