Business Central 2023 wave 2 (BC23): Share a data analysis with a co-worker (Copy link in the Analysis mode)

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.

Share a data analysis with a co-worker:

Business value:
Data analysis mode lets you calculate and analyze data directly from a list page, without having to run a report or switch to another application, such as Excel. After you’ve prepared an analysis on a tab, you can easily communicate your findings with your colleagues by sharing a link to the tab.

Data analysis mode was introduced as a public preview feature in 2023 release wave 1, and provided a new way to interact with data on list pages. More details: Analyze, group, and pivot data on list pages using multiple tabs (In-client Analysis mode)

In this release, Microsoft take this concept even further and make it possible to also analyze data from any query, the same way as you can on a list page. More details: Business Central 2023 wave 2 (BC23): Analyze, group, and pivot data on queries using multiple tabs (In-client Analysis mode in Query)

And Microsoft has added a new Copy link feature in Analysis mode.

  • From any analysis tab, you can share a link to the tab with co-workers.

PS: In BC22.5

Note: As of now (2023.09.22), this link does not contain the environment name (such as Sandbox, Production), so the link generated in all environments will jump to the Production environment. If you need to specify the environment, please manually add the environment name after the Tenant ID and before do.
  • Shared links can also be used as a click-once installation of good out-of-the-box analysis.

When a user clicks a shared link, the page opens in data analysis mode and the analysis is created as an analysis tab.
My test link:

Great. Give it a try!!!😁

PS: Business Central 2023 wave 2 (BC23): Turn off data analysis mode on pages and queries (AnalysisModeEnabled Property and Allow Data Analysis Mode permission)


Hope this will help.

Thanks for reading.
