File upload in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

anaptis Dropzone:
The less intuitive handling

is your challenge.

The user-friendliness of software is of great importance today. On the one hand, employees can perform productive work on a daily basis, and on the other hand, new employees can be trained easily.

In the Dynamics 365 Business Central system standard, users can currently only store files as attachments in an insufficient number of places. It is also very unfavorable that the operation is not very intuitive and cumbersome.

Improve user experience with

our solution anaptis Dropzone.

Improve the user experience of Dynamics 365 Business Central with anaptis Dropzone. The add-on makes it possible to attach files to documents (e.g. purchase orders) via drag-and-drop (dragging files to a dedicated area in the web browser).

In this case, the standard functionality remains and is merely supplemented by the app.

The drag-and-drop area is initially displayed in the app standard at the places where the option of a file attachment also exists in Dynamics 365 Business Central Standard. If you still want the functionality beyond that in other places in the system, it is very easy to add it there.

Lastly, the uploaded files can of course be downloaded or deleted.

In summary, the application offers three core functions:

  1. file upload via drag-and-drop
  2. file download
  3. file deletion

anaptis Dropzone - Azure Blob Storage

anaptis Dropzone – Azure Blob Storage

Using the “Azure Blob Storage” extension for anaptis Dropzone, files from Dynamics 365 Business Central are not stored within the software in a table, but in the Microsoft Cloud in Azure Blob Storage.

Why does this benefit me?
This way, the files do not count on Microsoft’s limited storage space for SaaS instances.

anaptis Dropzone – File System Storage

With the help of the “File System Storage” extension for anaptis Dropzone, the files from Dynamics 365 Business Central On-Premise are not stored in the table, but locally (in their own folders). The path where the files are stored can be defined by the administration.

Why does this benefit me?
This puts the files in a folder that can be accessed by users who do not have access to Dynamics 365 Business Central. It also makes it easier to archive the files.
