“Post and Print” function in Business Central
The “Post & Print” function was removed since Dynamics NAV 2017, it has been replaced by the “Post & Send” function which allows you to do more things by configuring specific sending profiles.
Now the newly posted document is opened after posting, you can print it from there …but if, on the other hand, you want to work as it was in Dynamics NAV 2016, you can simulate it by sending the printouts to a profile for sending documents configured to send the document to “printer“.
.. It is true that there is now everywhere electronic invoicing, but it can be useful for other types of printing.
“Post & Send” Function
Default Option save to DISK (PDF)
WORKAROUND: USE “POST & SEND” BUTTON TO SEND DATA TO PRINTER
Document sending profiles
In the Document Sending Profiles window, you set up different sending profiles that you can select from in the Document Sending Profile field on a customer card. In the Document Sending Profile window for a sending profile, you can select the Default check box to specify that the document sending profile is the default profile for all customers, except for customers where the Document Sending Profile field is filled with another sending profile.
When you choose the “Post and Send” button on a sales document, the Post and Send Confirmation dialog box shows the sending profile used, either the one set up for the customer or the default for all customers.
CREATE A NEW SENDING PROFILE AND CONFIGURE
Specify if the document is printed when you choose the Post and Send button. You can choose between the following options:
Yes (Use Default Settings): The document is printed according to the default printer setup.
Yes (Prompt for Settings): The document is printed according to settings that you make on the printer setup dialog.
EXAMPLE – DIRECT PRINTING
EXAMPLE – ONDEMAND PRINTER SELECTION
You can see all saved profiles from this page
You can set each customer up with a preferred method of sending sales documents, so that you do not have to select a sending option every time you choose the Post and Send button.
