Pain Points Attachment Viewer for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Solves

"Just one second, let me find that file..." is an oft-muttered phrase around the office when using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Document management eats up time, more so with the increasing reliance on digital collaboration.

We know that all-too-familiar feeling – digging through subfolders to find the right attachment version, opening documents just to preview them, or dealing with clunky navigation between files.

If you have nodded in frustration over document management headaches like these, then it's time to use an Attachment Management solution for Business Central. Users voiced their needs and we listened-the result is an Attachment viewer.

But before that, let's understand what are the key pain points with attachments that drain productivity daily.

3 Pain Points with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

The Frustration of Traditional Attachments

Every BC user knows the frustration of dealing with attachments. Whether it's sales invoices, job planning lines, or any document, the struggle remains the same.

You're forced to download files, clutter your storage, and waste precious time. Additionally, attachments are often lost or corrupted.

No Preview Makes Identifying Files Hard

Without attachment previews in Business Central, you're left guessing what's actually in each document based solely on the file name. Opening attachments just to check if it's the correct file or the latest version is inconvenient and disruptive to workflows.

Clunky Attachment Management Slows Processes

Uploading and navigating between attachments in Business Central can be surprisingly clunky for a modern ERP system. You find yourself having to click through numerous screens and menus just to view, download or share a simple file.

The fractured, fragmented attachment process forces you to jump through hoop after hoop merely to access and distribute files – an absurd reality for a cutting-edge platform.
