Analyzing Long-Running AL with Power BI
This is a big one! Finally, the long-running AL method is going to be something worth looking at – and I expect it even to be more interesting than the SQL one! Thanks so much, @KennieNP!
“New improvement coming to the Power BI reports on #msdyn365bc telemetry: Analyze long-running AL (without modal time) (requires v21.6). Coming in the June updates of the apps. Try it today in the beta app for ISV telemetry.”

Understanding Vendor Invoice Management in Business Central
There is more to vendor invoices than you might think! Vendor Invoice Management is the process of recording and matching an invoice to a purchase order and receipt information. There are two ways to invoice purchases in Business Central, each with its merits.

Select a Dataverse environment for Power Automate Flows in D365 BC
In the past, Power Automate flows in Business Central were always sourced in the default (or first) Dataverse environment.
Beginning with version 22, users can select a Dataverse environment in the context of the Automate group and access flows stored in that Dataverse environment.
Stefano Demiliani shows how in his blog, Dynamics 365 Business Central: Power Automate environment selection and permissions.
Get the Most out of Git
Tom H. shared his experience with GitKraken’s online course:
I’ve been working with Git repositories for years now, but I didn’t really understand what was going on or what Git could do for me. So, I set aside some time and took this free online training class in Git from GitKraken that did a good job of explaining a lot of Git’s features and how they work. Anyone who wants to actually understand what Git is doing and doesn’t know how to start should check it out.
