Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 - Yes It is!

Hi All,

Yes, I know it's not what I said in Last week article, but I guess things are changing 😊 and I always believe changes are good.

So here are some latest updates -

Microsoft has decided to release Dynamics NAV 2018 this year. 

Sources - Alysa Taylor Article.

What that means - Whatever we are heard in #Directions and was part of the last blog, is not completely true. We don't need to wait till Spring 2018 for next release.

So let's get ready for next release & start preparing for it.

What's New in NAV 2018 - 

1. Ceridian payroll - Import payroll transaction files from Ceridian HR/Payroll in US and Ceridian Powerpay in CA by installing the Ceridian Payroll extension.

2. Quickbooks File Import
Import payroll transaction files in the Quickbooks IIF format by installing the Quickbooks Payroll File Import extension.

3. Integration API
Adding a REST API based on web services with easy-to-use authentication.The entities in the API can be used on their own or in combination with extensions when there is a need to add user interface elements or business logic Dynamics NAV.

The first iteration of the API publishes common record types, including company information, customer, vendor, employee, item (product), sales order, sales invoice, account, and journal.

4. Synchronize Vendors with Lexmark ICS
You can now take advantage of vendor synchronization when using Lexmark ICS. This will improve the vendor recognition rate in the Lexmark ICS and allow manual selection of vendors when performing visual training of new invoice layouts.

5. Personalize your workspace
With our upcoming personalization tool built directly into Dynamics NAV, all it takes is a few clicks to display the right data for your role and your business or optimize for data entry in the browser.

6. Preview and Print Reports
Invoices, tax reports, checks and balance sheets - our upcoming Report Preview feature will display all kinds of reports directly in Dynamics NAV without having to download as a file.
You will also be able to print directly from the browser.

7. Analyzing Financial Statements in Microsoft Excel
In the Business Manager and Accountant Role Centers, you can choose which financial statements to view in Excel from a drop-down menu in the Reports section of the ribbon. When you choose a statement, it will be opened in Excel or Excel Online. An add-in connects the data to Financials.

8. 3 Checks per Page
A new format has been created for check printing.  You now have the ability to print 3 checks per page to save paper and make check printing faster.

9. Full CRM Synchronization can be run in background

10. Submission of EC Sales List with more than 9999 lines

What Developer need to focus -

  • Start using/learning visual studio code.
  • Start selling and usage of web client instead of windows client.  
  • Start using events & subscription & Events. 
Future is the cloud, VS Code, customization with events & web client. Here is in the video below from microsoft.

I would be happy to discuss it further if required. I will try my best to keep you all updated as soon as I hear it.

Let me know your views.

MSDYN365BC - Data Upgrade To Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on premises.

Hi Readers, We have already talked about the number of steps for upgrading to Business Central on Premises from different NAV versions. After that article, I received multiple requests for an article which list down steps for Data Migration. In this article, we will discuss steps of data migration to MSDYN365BC (on-Prem) from NAV 2017. For this article, I am considering a Cronus Demo Database without any customization. For an actual upgrade project, we will have to complete object merge using compare and Merge process. After the Merge Process, the next step is data migration. Let's discuss those steps. Direct Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (on-Prem) is from following versions - 1. NAV 2015. 2. NAV 2016. 3. NAV 2017. 4. NAV 2018.
