Speed Up Implementation of Dynaway EAM for Business Central

Some of the questions that we often hear from the partners and customers are: how to start implementation of Dynaway EAM? How long does it take? Is it complicated to find all the setups, and what is the setup order?

If you are a consultant working for a partner or a system administrator, we have a tip for you. You can create something that in the maintenance space is very common - a checklist. This, instead of maintenance, would be tailored for the users involved in implementing Dynaway EAM.

What are checklists in Business Central?

In a few words, the checklist in Dynamics 365 Business Central is the set of tasks assigned to the person or role (called profile) that should be done during the implementation. Each role, such as Asset Manager, Finance Manager, or Sales Manager, can have tailored tasks to achieve the common goal, which is successful implementation.
