Why Opt for Dimension Inference and Constraint 365 in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central?

As a finance manager, you understand the paramount importance of maintaining precise financial data to drive well-informed decisions. Yet, the specter of data entry errors and inconsistencies can undermine your efforts and lead to costly blunders. This is precisely where Dimension Inference and Constraint 365 for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central step in to make a difference.

Dimension Inference automatically establishes default values for one or more dimensions based on the specified value for another dimension. For example, when you select a specific department, it can seamlessly set predetermined values for customer groups and purchasers. This not only saves valuable time and effort but also ensures uniformity across transactions, significantly reducing the risk of human errors.

In addition to setting default dimension values, Dimension Inference can also enforce the use of these defaults. Even if someone attempts to modify the default value, the document won't post unless the correct value is applied. This control feature is instrumental in preserving the accuracy and reliability of your financial data.

On the other hand, the Constraint function streamlines your Dimension List by restricting the dimensions available during dimension lookup. Leveraging the standard Business Central "Dimension Combinations" functionality, it conceals any dimension that is part of a 'Blocked' combination. This feature not only helps organize your Dimension List but also prevents the selection of incorrect dimensions that could impact your data's precision.
