Using font icons in control add-ins

On the Vjeko.com blog, Vjekoslav Babić noted that including web fonts in your control add-ins isn't rocket science.

Control add-ins are just pieces of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript running in an iframe, so whatever you can do within an iframe from anywhere else, you can do it from control add-ins. Web fonts are no different.

However, you'll start having problems if you want to package web fonts into the control add-in to use them even when your Business Central or NAV instance is running in an isolated network, or if you just want to do away with any external dependencies, Babić stated.

Using Intelligent Edge for architecting multi-national installations of Dynamics 365 Business Central with multiple different localizations

On the Russian ERP Experience blog, Alexander Ermakov stated that there are a number of countries that still don't have the cloud (SaaS) version of Business Central. However, there's an option you can use that's very close to SaaS.

It will also allow you to consolidate data from several differently localized and even customized databases, as well as (for some countries, e.g., Russia) solve the issue of personal data protection law – without any de-personalization plugins.

This option became available with the April release of Business Central and Intelligent Edge.
