Business Central 2022 wave 2 (BC21) new features: Share to Teams action now includes link preview

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi, Readers.
The preview environment for Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 release wave 2 (BC21) is available. Learn more: Link.

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

Share to Teams action now includes link preview:

Business value:

Users save time, and they benefit from not having to switch between apps when they can initiate collaborative tasks directly from Business Central. By choosing to share a compact card instead of only a hyperlink to a record, recipients gain more context and are able to act faster on business data.

The Business Central web client provides a Share menu that includes an action to Share to Teams. When sharing, a link to the current page or record is automatically added to the message composition area in the Share to Teams page.

This is a new feature of Business Central 2021 wave 2 (BC19): Share a record link to Microsoft Teams

For example, in Customer Card page:

This action allows users to type a message, choose recipients such as team members, groups or channels, and send their message with a link to the Business Central record.

And in Item Card page:

Starting in this wave, users can share a preview of the link as a compact and elegant card that summarizes the record. They can choose between sending only the link or both the link and the card in the message.

Let me try it.

Choose Share to Teams in Item Card page.

Another example for the customer:

The outcome is similar to pasting a Business Central link into the message composition box in Microsoft Teams.

Very nice. Give it a try!!!😁

Hope this will help.
