Business Central 2021 wave 2 (BC19) new features: Discovering reports and administration areas in Role Explorer

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi, Readers.
The preview environment for Dynamics 365 Business Central 2021 release wave 2 (BC19) is available now. Learn more:

I will continue to test and share some new features that I hope will be helpful.

Discovering reports and administration areas in Role Explorer:

Business value:

With the addition of Role Explorer in a previous Business Central release wave, we made it extremely easy to browse, search, and simply explore pages within or outside of your role. Now, you can narrow the exploration to reports and data analysis areas only, which can help you discover information crucial for your business decisions. In the same way, you can narrow the exploration to just administrative tasks, which can help when you’re setting up or configuring the system.

Feature details:

The Role Explorer window features new, easy-to-discover actions that let you filter Role Explorer to show only reports or only administration areas. You can always switch back to get an overview of all pages again.

This feature works seamlessly, whether you are exploring your role or all roles, using the Find option, or expanding and collapsing content in the window. In short, it’s smooth, easy, and ready to use.

This is a small improvement, I would prefer to give users or developers the permission or the method to modify this Role Explorer😃.

Let’s see some details.
