Dynamics 365 Business Central Extensions: How to Download & Install Them

There are many different Dynamics 365 Business Central extensions, also known as apps, that you can download and install to add functionality to your ERP. Follow the simple steps below to see how to download and install extensions in Business Central.

Important Notes

You and your Dynamics Partner should review potential extensions to determine what fits best with your needs and current solutions.

Any apps that are downloaded from AppSource should also be tested and explored thoroughly in your company’s sandbox environment first, before installing in a production environment. Read more about creating a sandbox environment in Business Central in this blog.

Be aware that the apps downloaded in AppSource are not created or developed by Encore, therefore we cannot provide technical support for them. The publishers of the apps should have contact information available for their technical support teams, should you need it.
