Business value:

  • Dimensions are values that categorize entries so you can track and analyze them using various reporting tools. For example, dimensions can indicate the department or project an entry came from. Having default dimensions on entities helps people avoid making mistakes and having to enter dimensions manually on the transaction level if all goods come from a single location and department.

Feature details:

  • In this release Microsoft completed the Default Dimension on Location feature that we introduced several releases ago.
  • You can set default dimensions for a location on the Location Card page by choosing the Dimensions action. When you choose the location on a line in one of the following documents, its default dimensions are copied to the document:
    • Transfer Order
    • Physical Inventory Order
    • Inventory Shipment
    • Inventory Receipt
    • Item Journals

If needed, you can delete or change the dimension on the line.

Because transfer order documents and reclassification journals deal with more than one location, the order in which you enter data is important. Default dimensions are copied from the last location field (In-Transit Location is ignored). The following examples illustrate the default dimension that will be used.


  • Define Global Dimensions on two locations as shown below.

  • Create a Transfer order or Reclassification Journal and then look at dimension. The Default Dimension of last location will be copied to document or Journal as shown below.

  • Create an Inventory Shipment, Inventory Receipts or Item Journals with Location and then look at dimension. Default dimension from location will be copied to documents as shown below.

Hope you learn and will be able to utilize this feature as Business Central 22 is available.
