Yesterday, a partner asked me, is it possible to print orders while posting in Business Central? For example, Sales orders, because sales staff may forget to print the document when posting. Yes, what they wants is the Post and Print function. If you have the experience of Dynamic NAV, you might know this button.
Dynamics NAV 2015
Sales Order list: Post and Print…
Sales Order Card: Post and Print…
The “Post and Print…” action was removed since Dynamics NAV 2017, it has been replaced by a new “Post and Send…” function which allows you to do more things by configuring specific Document Sending Profile.
Dynamics NAV 2017: Post and Send…
Business Central: Post and Send…
If you choose Post and Send… on Sales Order page, Do you want to post and send the document? dialog box will be opened. And The default setting of Send Document to is Disk(PDF).
If you continue to post, the report will be automatically downloaded to the local disk after completion.
