We always say, you should test in a sandbox before you deploy a new app to your production environment. However, in this case, it is not strictly necessary.


Business Central out-of-the-box comes with a report named “Item Availability by Event”, which is a basic table showing the availability of items. The app Graphical Inventory Profile simply adds a graphical overview of the data and provides more controls.

Graphical Inventory Profile is available wherever the inventory profile of the item is relevant. The “Item Availability by Event” is only available from the item.

Some people prefer to work with tables of numbers – others prefer to view graphical presentations of data. You have probably come to this point, because you find the Item Availability by Event report difficult to use in your daily work.
