One of its most effective capabilities is to automate document sending.
Dynamics 365 Business Central offers an option to define an organization’s preferred method of sending documents by creating a Document Sending Profile.
Before we learn how it works, let us understand what is Document Sending Profiles feature and how a business can benefit from this feature.
Benefits of Document Sending Profile
Every organization has its own preferred method of sending documents to clients or vendors.
With Document Sending Profile, they can set up different sending profiles and select the preferred profile from the Document Sending Profile field on a specific customer card.
Creating different profiles for each customer/vendor benefits a business in many ways, such as:
- Dynamics 365 Business Central allows you to create as many Document Sending Profiles as you want based on your convenience.
- It means you can have one for each customer or vendor. You simply have to attach the profile created for that particular vendor and use it for different business purposes.
- Creating a profile in advance will save your valuable time, which can be utilized further for more vital processes needed to run a business.
- Document Sending Profiles also provides an option to create a default profile. The benefit of a default profile is that this option is automatically selected for any customer card if no profile is chosen. Hence, you do not have to select a sending option explicitly every time you choose the Post and Send
