Sending automated reminders saves time and effectively prompts clients/customers to pay their incoming or past due invoices in a timely manner. Sending these reminders just became much easier for your business with the Accounts Receivable Automation “Collection Plan” window. This organization tool will allow you to select when to send these reminders, customize the email, and choose which customers receive them. Here’s how to do it:

To setup an automated reminder Collection Plan within Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, start by opening up the Collection Plan window as shown below.

You can setup as many actions as you would like. In the first example highlighted below, we are sending a reminder to customers who owe money within the next 5 days. Each step can have its own template letter assigned.
