Simple Object Designer
Empowering you to customize Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central without writing a single line of code
Create fields on any table
Are you missing a field anywhere in Business Central?
Just select the table, fill in the name of the new field, select a type and you’re done.
Place new fields on any page
After you have created a new field, select where you want your users to see and use the field.
You’ll get a list of all possible places where the field can be shown.
Surface existing fields on any page
The field you’re looking for may already exist in Business Central, and it’s just hidden with no way to display it.
With the Simple Object Designer, you can surface those fields and place them on any page.
Place fields on any report
After adding fields, you might also want to print them.
The Simple Object Designer enables you to add both your new fields and existing fields to a report’s data-set.
Then you can use either Word or Report Builder (depending on the type of report) to add the fields to the layout.
Connect fields between tables
You can activate a Field Transfer if the same is added to multiple tables.
Example: If a field is added to both the customer and the sales order, then you can activate a field transfer to have the field on the sales order be filled out with the value from the customer you select.
Expose data as web service APIs
Microsoft is telling everybody to stop exposing pages as web services and instead use APIs. But there’s no easy way to expose data as API without writing code.
The Simple Object Designer enables you to expose data as true APIs and get all the benefits of an API without writing any code.
Add new features to BC
A feature is data, with user-interface and business logic, all bundled together to extend Business Central to fit your needs. Specify what fields and functionality you want and watch the Object Designer create it for you.
Select between different templates to easily design new functionality in Business Central without writing any code.
Each template is built with the deep knowledge to produce the same level of quality as you would expect from a senior developer.
How is it actually working?
The Simple Object Designer has an app generator and compiler built-in and outputs a new extension.
The new extension can be installed automatically or downloaded and installed on another environment. (You can create your new fields in a sandbox and afterwards move them to production, or you can work directly in production).
