Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central: Links to Information and Resources

By Steve Endow

Last updated May 17, 2019

There is so much information being published about Dynamics 365 Business Central that I find it difficult to keep track of everything.  I am going to collect links to information and resources here for my reference.  I will update this list regularly as I find new resources.

You can use this short URL to reference this post:

Please feel free to send me additional resources!  or   steveendow {at} gmail.

Business Central training courses available for download

Note 1: Some of the download links in the article do not work. Scroll down to the comments to find a list from "mbiggs" that has alternative links to the download pages.

Note 2: After downloading the files, read these instructions on how to play the course, and open the SCO1\onlineLauncher.htm file in Edge. I was only able to get them to display properly using the Edge browser.  (much thanks to Marton Sagi for the pointer)

    1. Thanks! I've added Gunnar's blog and Twitter link

  2. Thank you very much for your work and time Steve Endow. It would be great to create a list of the users that you share above in order to follow whole people in Twitter with a single click!

    1. Interesting idea! I think I may have found a way to do that. It looks like it will require a Chrome Extension and a few clicks, but if it works, it should be much faster than following each account separately.
