In both views, you can search for certain production orders:

  • In the Capacity View, users can search for production orders and production order lines.
  • In the Sales Order View, users can search for sales orders and sales item lines.
  • The respective view then automatically scrolls to the first search result which gets highlighted as well.

The search dialogs can be personalized the same way as is known from Business Central by adding columns in the fields list.
