Introduction:

Since the release Business central Online at April 2, 2018, extension has gained its popularity. Here, I’ll be adding cue tiles to the existing Cue page called ‘Project Manager Activities’ using Extension i.e VS code.

Pre-requisites:

  • VS Code
  • Business Central

Steps:

  1. Create a Table Extension and add the fields you want to add in the cue page.
  2. Here the fields are of FieldClass Flowfields which uses CalCFormula to count values.
