ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV / Business Central Developer Digest - Vol 328

In this edition of Developer Digest, we’re sharing how to use PowerShell Select-String to search directories, Enhanced Email Capabilities in BC 2020 Wave 2, and more.

The Dynamics NAV and Business Central community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, is made up of developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating, with the common goal of  sharing helpful information with one another to help customers be more successful.

As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them on blogs, forums, social media...so everyone can benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this community—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share this great information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from NAV/BC experts and devotees around the world. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.

Developer Tip of the Day: Using PowerShell Select-String to Search Directories

Kyle shares a helpful Developer Tip of the Day: “You can use PowerShell Select-String (or SLS for short) to search through subdirectories. You just need to feed it those directories first:
  
     Get-ChildItem *.json -Recurse | Select-String -Pattern "16\.5" 
  
That slashdot is intentional—remember the pattern parameter uses regular expressions.”
