Stratos Cloud Alliance Continues to Accelerate Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Value

Table of Content

    Stratos Cloud Alliance, a Microsoft Indirect CSP Provider who specializes in Dynamics 365, is also a certified Microsoft ISV Development Center. Our development team brings fresh and innovative thinking to support ISVs and our partners in realizing value faster when creating solutions and applications that extend functionality to meet customer requirements.  On April 19th, 2021, we announced the Spring Release of our Dynamics SL Overlay for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. The overlay adds new, high value features to cloud-based Business Central based on feedback from both the Dynamics SL and Business Central user communities. It is available now on Microsoft AppSource published under our Plumbline Solutions brand and is offered to all Business Central users – at no additional cost!

    While the Fall Release, which was announced in October 2020, focused on functionalities that focused on time saving, the Spring release includes features to find and process your data easier, reduce processing time with new one-step enhancements, customizable graphical interface that provides Dynamics SL-like menus, 10 new SL-based report user favorites, and Control Total capability to improve accuracy in Purchase and Sales Invoice data entry. Despite the name, the SL Overlay is a great free addition for any partner who is building their Dynamics 365 Business Central practice, for both net new clients or existing Dynamics SL and GP clients.

    SL Overlay Feature Highlights:

    • Created by User enhancements: Track the creator of an entry
    • List Page view enhancements: See only the entries a user makes by default
    • Release multiple batches at one time
    • Control totals enhancements: Enter a control total to track against actual line items; view Customer and Vendor Totals during data entry
    • Budgeting enhancements: Adds support for dimensions 3-6
    • New Graphic Menu Layout
    • Changing terminology
    • 10 new SL based reports: Financial reports, Permission comparison report
    • Period field enhancements: View and report based on periods
    • Warning Messages
    • Shortcut Dimensions 3-8: Adds Shortcut Dimensions to setup and data entry screens and adds initialization process to populate previous entries
