Created-by on Documents just tracks who creates documents – that’s it.

Have you ever wanted to track who created the original Sales Order or Purchase Order?

And to your surprise, this information is generally not available in your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Created-by on Documents is a simple and free extension that helps you to get insight into who created the original documents.

When you have installed Created-by on Documents in your Dynamics 365 Business Central, it simply enables a “Created by” field which is displayed on the “General” fast-tab on the various Sales and Purchase Documents and in the various Order lists.

When you enter an order – the “Created by” field will automatically be populated with the name of the user, and it will automatically keep track of the users on archived documents and posted documents – easily viewable for tracking purposes.
