Basically, we can customise Dynamics 365 Business Central Pages without any coding in two ways: 

  1. Personalisation: You can personalise Dynamics 365 Business Central by adding or removing fields in pages. You can also change the sequence of fields in pages. Personalisation will affect only the User Interface of the user who personalised the page. 
  2. Design: You can use the designer to customise the user interface by moving fields or changing the experience and make this available in the entire organisation i.e. In Design mode changes that are made will be applied to all the users working on the Dynamics 365 Business Central of an organisation. But you will need special permissions to perform this task. 

So, in this blog we will only look at how we can personalisation pages in Business Central and try to add, remove or move the fields in the Customer list.
