Captiva finally got our scheduled upgrade to Business Central 14 in our Production environment. Initial results are very promising, though we had to navigate one error that ended up with a simple solution.

After trialing and testing v14 in docker and Azure, we were satisfied that our extensions and customizations would work fine, so we scheduled the Production upgrade. We really like the changes to the interface and the speed improvements, along with the changes to make the user interface more consistent across pages.

While doing our smoke test, we started getting an error, “The administrator has made a change to the system that requires you to restart your activity” when creating new sales documents (Sales Order, Sales Invoice). After getting over the initial panic and wondering if our clients would get the same error, we tried the simplest fix – we removed cookies and reloaded the application.

Eureka! Now it’s working again like a charm. If you get the same error, give this quick fix a try.
