Use DocXtender

You are here:

DocXtender can be used to attach or link documents to most card, order, and invoice pages in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. You can also easily find documents, download documents, and delete documents attached to a record.

 

Note: DOCX-USER users do not have permissions to change settings. The administrator will need to grant the DOCX-SETUP permission set to users needing to change the behavior settings.

 

Attach documents to a record with document attachments configuration

  1. Open a card, order, or invoice (e.g., a vendor card) that includes FactBox.
  2. Select Attachments.
  3. Drag and drop the file onto the Attachments section of the vendor FactBox (attached document count increases and a confirmation window opens, if configured).
  4. Select Yes (opens the list of attached files).
  5. Find your document in the list of attachments to verify it is attached.

 

Note: Your system may not allow multiple documents with the same name to be attached to a record; during configuration, the system can be set up to prompt, rename, or block the duplicate file.
