Having worked on Business Central for months now, there had always been an “obvious” comparison between the features that were available with the RTC versions of NAV and were “sort of” missing in Business Central.

Seemingly Microsoft realizes that and had been working actively on it. Some of these were added in the October 2018 Release, a lot shall be added in the April 2019 release as Microsoft announced in their release note for the upcoming release of Business Central.

Apart from adding the productivity features, as I had experienced (and also acknowledged by Microsoft support folks) there had been a lot being done for performance optimization on Business Central, which is due to release on April 19. As a matter of fact, it is quite evident from the April 2019 release notes.

“..We’ve invested heavily in boosting performance, reliability, and scalability of Business Central, across the platform and business application”

“We will continue to enhance the application through our focus on performance in the most used areas. …they will experience faster responses as a result of optimizing the application code, such as optimizing how quickly the Home page loads, and performance improvements in key application scenarios that are used on a daily basis.”   ~ Microsoft


Below are some of the key highlights business users expect to see in the Business Central April 2019 release:

  • Write longer names and descriptions on masters, documents, Journals, and Ledgers
  • Improvised Export to Excel – with filters
  • Auto Save indicator on pages
