Get your Business Central Popdock Widget ID and Widget Region

When setting up your Popdock widget in Business Central, you will enter your widget ID from your Popdock configuration. A Dynamics 365 Business Central widget (Multiple Lists Widget) is automatically created when you add the Popdock Dynamics 365 Business Central connector.

By default, the automatically created widget is named Dynamics 365 Business Central and should be renamed to be more descriptive or even match your environment name. Additional Dynamics 365 Business Central connectors added to Popdock will be created with the same name with a sequential number appended, i.e., Dynamics 365 Business Central 2, Dynamics 365 Business Central 3, etc.

This article will show you how to get your Widget ID and Widget Region from your Dynamics 365 Business Central Popdock Widget.
