15 Aug 2014 8:43 AM #MSDYNSL 2015 – Report search fields, now with metadata! What is metadata and how does it impact me? Plainly put, it displays easy to understand names (ex. Account, Vendor, Customer) instead of just a list of fields and tables (ex. Vr_0160.Acct). Now when users need to search or select for information on a report, they can understand the name of the field. In addition users can also see whether or not the field you are selecting is being displayed on a report. Have you created your own custom report using Dynamics SL tables? Well you will inherit this capability. Additionally, you can add your own custom metadata as well for custom or third party products as well.
