Set up Global Dimensions

You can use Global Dimensions to set the analysis codes representing the shops. To define the Global Dimension, you first need to create it:


  • You need to use the NP Retail Manager Role Center to be able to configure all segments of this setup.

Procedure in Business Central

  1. Click the Lightbulb button, enter Dimension, and open the related link.
  2. Click New, and populate the Name and Code fields.

Enable chart visibility

If the chart isn’t visible by default, click Gear that opens settings in the top right corner, and then use the Personalize function in the NP Retail Manager Role Center.


Define chart type

After personalization, the view will be visible, and you will need to define the dimension by which you want to view the overview.
To do this, navigate to the Insights section of the Role Center, and pick the created dimension in the Chart Type dropdown list.
