Feature Details - 

Businesses often need to send reports to multiple recipients. Business Central now makes it easy to share reports from the Report Inbox and document attachments through OneDrive for Business.

Explanation -

  • Till Business Central 18, after you run a report or attach a file, you need to download the file to view it.
  • With Business central 19, To view either a report from the Report Inbox or to open an attachment in the browser, you can now choose the Open In OneDrive action.
  • This action copies the file from Business Central to OneDrive for Business, then opens the file using the online applications for Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, or with OneDrive's file viewer for all other files, such as PDFs.

Remember - 
  • The file will still be stored in Business Central Database.
  • File will not move to One Drive, A copy of file will be placed in one drive for viewing purpose only.
  • No Sync between OneDrive & Business Central.

Hope you learn and will be able to use this feature with Business Central 19.
