Business Central 2022 wave 1 (BC20) new features: Release and reopen multiple documents

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi, Readers.
The preview environment for Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 release wave 1 (BC20) is available. Learn more: Link

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

Release and reopen multiple documents:

Business value:

The status of documents indicates whether they’re open, waiting to be approved, have been invoiced for prepayment, or have been released to the next stage of processing. When you finish working on a batch of documents, you can release all or some of them to the next stage in the process or reopen them for further processing, all in one go.

This is a very great improvement. As you know, in previous versions, such as in BC19.5, if you select multiple orders on the Sales Orders page, and choose Release or Reopen, only the last one will take effect. So we can not release and reopen multiple documents.

Test Video:

It’s completely different now.
In BC20.0 Preview:

Let’s see more details.

To make it easier to quickly identify documents that are open or released, especially when viewing a list of documents, the Open and Released statuses have different font colors.
Released: black bold
Open: green bold

When you release or reopen multiple documents, a confirmation will show the number of documents that are selected and the number that remain unchanged.

For example, select two released orders and four open orders, then choose Release.

You have selected multiple documents for processing. Some of the documents are not available and will be skipped. (Selected 6, Skipping 2)

Do you want to continue?

1. Progress is shown during the process of releasing and reopening documents, and if there are errors, they are shown on the Errors Messages page. And if an error occurs during the Release or Reopen process, all orders will not be rolled back, and orders without errors will be processed.

2. During preview of this feature, only sales documents have support bulk Release and Reopen.


Hope this will help.

Thanks for reading.
