Business Central 2023 wave 2 (BC23): Distinguish between browser tabs when multitasking (New browser tab name)

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi, Readers.
The public preview for Dynamics 365 Business Central 2023 release wave 2 (BC23) is available. Learn more: Link.

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

Distinguish between browser tabs when multitasking:

Business value:
Users work more efficiently in Business Central when they use multiple browser tabs or windows to compare data, even across companies, or deal with new tasks as they appear. But navigating across open windows—for example, by selecting the Alt+Tab keys—quickly becomes challenging when all windows look alike. In this wave, Business Central helps to distinguish one open window from the next, making it easier to switch context.

This new feature is similar to Share readable deep links to pages and records.

Business Central now uses a simple and clear schema for naming browser tabs and windows:

  • Context: The tab name for list, card, and document pages reflects the current record, page or view, no matter how you navigated to that page.

Customer Card:

Item List:

  • Readability: To improve readability, the tab name has been trimmed of all secondary information. For example, the full product branding is no longer included, and the view or edit state of the page is also omitted.

In BC22.5:

  • Current: The tab name is automatically updated while you navigate within the web client.
  • Multicompany: The company badge is included in the tab name, if the company has been assigned a badge.

Nice improvement. Give it a try!!!😁
