How to use the tabs in Business Central?

The item card in Business Central is divided into different tabs, and on each tab you can open the tab, and you can show more fields, if you want to see all of the fields. This gives you an overview of the item card.

This is what happens in the video

First of all we have the item tabs which includes general information on the item, and we have the inventory tabs, which includes a lot of calculated fields displaying all the quantities on inventory etc, and some basic information on the item.

Then we have a tab for Costs & Posting, which is on the costing on the item and where the posting enters in the chart of accounts, and some of the reporting information, and then we have a tab for price and sales, and that’s mostly used by the sales people – for the sales prise and information about the sales side.

The replenishment tab is the next one, and it is about how to replenish the item – not how to plan it, but how to replenish it either by a production, purchase or assembly and parameters related to that.

Then we have the planning tab, where we set up all the information used in the planning worksheets and the requisition worksheet.

The item tracking tab is where we define information about how to trace the item with serial or lot numbers, and the warehouse tab has information that can be used in the warehouse on how to handle the item.

These are the tabs on the item card.
