With the latest release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, there are quite a few new features that build upon existing powerful features that were included in NAV 2013. These new features allow for easier implementations and upgrades, access to your data with iPad, Android or Windows tablets, and simplified reporting and visual cues.
Here’s a short description of some of the new ways Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 is now even quicker to implement and easier to use.
1. Rapid Start Improvements
|New Application Merge Utilities (AMU) makes upgrading easier, as the upgrade tasks can all be performed in the latest Dynamics NAV version. This eliminates the limitations for NAV Server and NAV Database versions (and Cumulative Updates), as the upgrade can be performed with TXT files.There is also a new Mapping Tool that allows mapping legacy fields to NAV 2015 fields. Auto-Creation of underlying records is also possible if the record is not found (ie, if a Payment Terms Code is not found, it will be auto-created).In the example below, during import, the new Mapping Tool will convert Customer Currency Codes from US to USD – it’s that easy!|
2. ERP Mobility with Tablet Apps
|Accessing Dynamics NAV 2015 can be done using a touch-enabled platform that users enjoy, such as Apple OS, Android and Windows Mobile. The new apps can be downloaded from Apps Store, Google Play or Windows Store.Customizing your mobile app can be done either in the Microsoft Dynamics Development Environment or by the user in the tablet device itself. Running reports, drilling into your data, sending data and more can all be done at the convenience of your mobile workforce.|
3. Enhanced Cues
4. Schedule Reports
|Instead of running reports on demand now Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 offers a way to also schedule reports. This feature can be enjoyed from any platform; Windows Client, Web Client, or Tablet Client.Scheduling Reports will free up the interface thread to allow the user to continue working while large or complex reports are running. Scheduled Reports can be saved to the “Report Inbox” for viewing now or later.
Scheduled Reports are available in RDLC, .pdf or MS Word.
