How To: Setting Up Document Sending Profiles In Microsoft Business Central

The document sending profile card will open, define the code and description of your new profile.

Enable the Default checkbox if you want the Document Sending Profile to be used by all customers that you haven’t defined a profile. Next setup the sending options. 

For the Printer and Email options you can choose whether to Use the default settings or Prompt for settings every time.

If you enable the Email option then a new field will appear, Email Attachment, where you set in what format the document will be attached on the email.
