¹ The assumption is that the intercompany partners manage their dimensions separately.
² Information – the document received contains the lines that have been mapped. Sample configuration: item numbers mapped, G/L accounts mapped, etc.
³ Warning – the document received contains a value that requires attention/verification. Sample configuration: the delivery date earlier than 3 days; the price different from the price for the intercompany partner, etc.
⁴ Error – the document received contains an error. Examples: the item has not been found, the G/L account does not exist, etc.
⁵ Buffer - if the document does not meet all of the required conditions, it will not be uploaded automatically to the target table (for example, to the Sales Header table), but it will be stored in the buffer. Sample conditions: the documents contain Warnings and Errors.
⁶ Negotiations – the intercompany partners agree upon the conditions of a transaction by exchanging the documents multiple times and adding their adjustments regarding the price, availability, discounts, delivery dates, etc.
⁷ Pre-Invoice process – goods shipped from one company are automatically received at a virtual location by the other company. This way, when the goods are in transit from one company to another, the value of the goods does not disappear from the books from the group perspective.
⁸ Both Standard (Dynamics 365 Business Central) Intercompany and Advanced Intercompany provide initial setup including the fields that will be exchanged between the companies. If it is required to add a new field that will be exchanged, the Standard Intercompany module requires object modifications by a partner (e.g. XML ports, codeunits, etc.). In Advanced Intercompany such a change is configurable and does not require any Dynamics 365 Business Central (Dynamics NAV) objects adjustments.
