Release notes Lasernet Connector Business Central

The Lasernet Connector for Dynamics Business Central version 4.0.1.3 has been released!

Release date: 12-04-2022

New Features and Enhancements in the Lasernet Connector BC

#283216 – Added more information to Lasernet Archive

More information is displayed about the job in the Lasernet archive, e.g. Mail Subject/body, email address, etc. 

This is displayed in a new infobox:

Added more information to Lasernet Archive

#286226 – Adding totals to Sales Blanket Report

There has been added the totals into the XML file.

Adding totals to Sales Blanket Report

#288625 – Error Message: "The length of the string is xx, it must be less than or equal to 20 characters"

When trying to print multiple documents at the same time, the following error message is displayed:

"The length of the string is xx, it must be less than or equal to 20 characters"

This is now fixed.

Error message for print of multiple documents fixed

#288871 – All Lines are now included on all reports (including empty reports)

Some lines were removed on the Lasernet reports, e.g. the Sales order BC was adding rounding or prepayment as a separate line or comments. Now you can include all lines related to the document independent of their type and contents. We have added a new option to the Lasernet Report Setup menu. Enabling this option will include all lines.

All lines are included on all reports

All lines are included on all reports (also empty)

#291278 – Sales Finance Charge report can not add custom fields via Document Layout

The top table on the Sales Finance Charge was wrong causing problems when adding Custom Fields via Document Layout. This is now fixed.

Add custom fields on Sales Finance Charge report

#291525 – Document Layout generates incorrect data when set in certain conditions

Document Layout custom field can generate a wrong Line No. for filtering in specific cases. 

For example, this can happen when a Sales Document has Sales Lines 10000, 20000 and 40000 (30000 was deleted before posting). 

During the posting, Sales Shipment Line or Posted Warehouse Shipment Line has Line Nos 10000, 20000 and 30000, with relation to 10000, 20000 and 40000 respectfully. 

When the top-level is starting from Sales/Posted Warehouse Shipment Line and has a sub-item Sales Line with a specified relation, the code was incorrectly assigned a Line No. for displaying 10000, 20000 and 40000. As a result, data that is required for the original line 30000 was filtered out.  This is now fixed.

#291528 – Inventory report takes the wrong email address

If you change the email address or email body on the Request page on the following reports, the email from Inventory Setup was used instead: 

  • Item Label

  • Transfer Order

  • Warehouse Picking List

  • Warehouse Shipment

Inventory report

Inventory report with email address

#291846 – Issued Fin. Charge Memo selects incorrect Email

SourceNo in Print Request was set the same as the Document No. so a proper Email cannot be found (the search was based on SourceNo field). This is now fixed.

#293042 – [OnPrem] Some reports generate error "Supplied field number '1' cannot be found" upon print

You could see this error if you use the On-prem version of Lasernet BC. 

This could happen on the following reports: 

  • Purchase Credit Memo

  • Purchase Invoice

  • Sales Credit Memo

  • Sales Invoice

  • Sales Shipment

  • Sales Return Order

This is now fixed.

#293597 – Attachment does not work when sending email

There was a bug in version 4.0.1.2 where attachments were not added to the email form. This is now fixed.

email attachment

#293729 – Printing multiple reports in one selection will result in a faulty XML file

We now support multiple previews. You can select more than one record to print or preview.

Note: All records are treated individually, so if you choose email, it will look for each customer and try to find an email address.

printing multiple reports

The following numbers 1-4 represent Sales Orders:

#293793 – Description on Document Layout Field is now mandatory

Updated archive

Updated archive in BC

#294116 – Transfer order report takes the wrong email adress

When adding email to the Inventory Setup and using Send E-mail as default,  the email address on the Transfer Order request page was not shown. This is now fixed.

When trying to email the Warehouse picking list, the following error message is displayed:

This is now fixed.

Warehouse error message fixed

#294275 – Error Message: "The FPL Report setup does not exist. Identification fields and values: Document Type = Item Label"

The above error message was shown when there is no Report Setup record found for Item Label and the user opens the Items List. 

This is now fixed.

#294321 – System generated lines do not show up on report

System-generated lines that BC is generating such as Prepayments lines on an invoice or roundings were not displayed on the Lasernet report. 

This is now fixed.

This new email function has a better user interface and it supports attachment with the possibility of adding even more attachments as well.

Lasernet has it own Language Code and that is renamed BC18 in order not to conflict with Microsoft’s Language Code added from BC18.

When using the Search option in BC, before we had more than 40 hits. Now we only show the important ones.
