Set up extended features
If you work in a larger company or one with more complex functionality or reporting requirements, you should think about the following settings:
SMTP email setup
You can set up SMTP to send emails automatically, without the need to open Outlook. This can be used for bulk posting or sending of documents, for example.
UBL / EAN / GLN setup
Exchange Rates and Currency Service setup
In the Currencies table, it is possible to specify current exchange rates for the currencies you use, or you can set up a service to update these currencies, and you can also activate a job queue to update them automatically at appropriate intervals.
EU VAT registration service
When you create customers and vendors in Business Central, you can check whether their VAT number is registered with the EU VAT registration service – to see whether it’s a valid number. You currently need to do this for each individual customer and vendor.
In the setup template you have received, we have included many different number series, which are used whenever new postings, documents, master data etc. are added.
You can find these in the Number Series setup, and you can see more about them in this video:
