A Shot of Business Central and A Beer Show Notes

Segment 1 – Beer Review

Arrogant Consortia Brewing Company: Arrogant Bastard Ale Beer

Arrogant Consortia Brewing Company: Hardcore, Heavy Metal type of a company. Actually, have a Metallica inspired beer called Enter Night.

Website seems to be inspired by some sort of Illuminati secret organization. It has a take on the Eye of Providence found on the back of the dollar bill. Very Interesting.

Arrogant Bastard Ale Beer: Released in 1997. According to the company’s website the best time to enjoy this beer is when it’s fresh, numbskull.

Has fairly good ratings on beer forums

Segment 4 – Business Central Feature App: Document Customizer

Why Document Customizer?

  • Many roles in your organization generate documents and most would like them to be customized. A Sales Rep may produce and Order Confirmation, a Warehouse Employee puts a delivery note in the box, and the Accountant produces an invoice for the customer and all of these people have different needs. How do you do this? Document Customizer lets you customize the standard document in Dynamics 365 Business Central any way that you want.

  • An example of this would be the Sales Rep wants master data on the item lines and a return policy on the invoice, and the Accountant wants payment terms in the footer of the invoice and payment info of specific customer.


  • Simple to install and easy to use. 8 easy steps and document is customized.

  • Pricing: One of the less expensive apps I’ve seen.


  • Can’t run initial setup from Document Customizer page in Business Central. Can only be run from notification bar on home page.

All-in-all it was a pretty easy setup and process to customizing documents. What I did was as basic a customization as you could do but I’m pretty confident that adding more customizations wouldn’t be too difficult.



Step 1: In Notifications select Setup your first document, enter email address, choose logo, and which document you’d like to customize.

Step 2: Preview your current document

Step 3: Do we want to add or remove a field in the header? Let’s remove Customer No. (Here’s a video showing how to add or remove fields in the header)

First thing we need to do is click edit

Next we want to delete the line that shows the Customer No. and click close.

Now let’s preview the document to make sure our changes worked

It worked!

Step 4: Now you have the option to edit a caption

Step 5: You can remove or add a field column in the lines

Step 6: You can display or remove the VAT specification

Step 7: You can customize the footer

Step 8: Now you can activate the report if you want to replace the document which is currently used.

All-in-all it was a pretty easy setup and process to customizing documents. What I did was as basic a customization as you could do but I’m pretty confident that adding more customizations wouldn’t be too difficult.
