Dynamics 365 Business Central Easy-to-use filters to fine-tune item planning

Item Planning Review provides a host of filters to help users focus on specific frequencies, periods, items, categories, locations, and more. For example, users can view all items associated with the plumbing category by month in the last quarter of a specific year. The worksheet will display detailed item information, including average usage. The average usage metric is very useful because users can see how much of a specific item is being shipped or consumed on average. Based on this information, different item planning tasks can be performed.
