Building on the location consolidated reporting that we just talked about and the use of dimensions to accommodate that. The next step is to talk about true multi-location management. If we return back into D365 Health and I take a look at those same dimensions we were just talking about. One of the dimensions that’s been created is specific to the entities the different physical locations that I have in my multi-location environment. As you can see I’ve got three different locations available as well as my headquarters and I can always come back and add to this list over time as necessary. I add new locations for example in the background.
What’s operating is multi-entity management, multi-entity management is a tool that allows us to really provide greater control around the different legal entities that make up our organization and as you can see there’s a fair amount of setup and thought that’s gone into the development of this mem product.
A couple key pieces to point out are going to be when I do things like assign my users security. I want to make sure that those employees within my company have access to the entities that they are responsible for but do not have access to an entity that’s not part of their domain or part of their responsibilities. That allows me to set up again user security based upon an individual or multiple entities within that. I can also set up some defaults here in the mem world I have a whole list of reports available that are all based upon that multi-entity management concept.
So take the standard Business Central reporting tools and from there I want to go through and add in specific capabilities to allow me to again do that company-wide or that very individual entity focused type of reporting and analysis.
