Microsoft Dynamics NAV Customers Rejoice: Dynamics NAV 2018 is Here!

Just in time to toast the New Year, Microsoft Dynamics NAV users can also rejoice in the release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018. The official release on December 1st was a joyous occasion indeed, as many long-anticipated new and improved features have been added and enhanced.

Here are the Qixas Group top 5 in random order:

Faster Check Printing

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

Using Microsoft Excel to Analyze Financial Statements

In the Business Manager and Accountant Role Centers, Dynamics NAV users can now choose which financial statements to view in Excel from a drop-down menu in the Reports section of the ribbon. When a statement has been selected, it will be opened in Excel or Excel Online. An add-in connects the data to Financials.

The following Excel reports are now available: Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Cash Flow Statement, Retained Earnings Statement, Aged Accounts Payable, and Aged Accounts Receivable.

CRM Synchronization

Full CRM synchronization can now be run in the background. The Microsoft Dynamics CRM Connection Setup guide now includes coupling of salespersons to CRM users as this is a prerequisite for any synchronization of data between Dynamics CRM and Financials.

The guide now allows you to run full synchronization when the CRM connection has been set up. The synchronization runs in the background so that the user can continue working.

New Reports Features

The new Report Preview feature will display all kinds of reports – such as invoices, tax reports, checks, and balance sheets – directly in Dynamics NAV without having to download them as a file. Then on any browser or mobile device users can click, type or swipe to pan, zoom and flip pages. Select and copy text, or click to link out to your data. It will also be possible to print directly from the browser.

Workspace Personalization

With the new personalization tool that is built directly into Dynamics NAV, all it takes is a few clicks to display the right data for a user’s role and business. Or, optimize for data entry in the browser. Users can move or hide content such as columns, fields, FactBoxes, charts, and KPIs. Show more business data by adding columns and fields. And freeze any column in a list so that key fields can always be seen.

There’s no time like the present to explore the new release!
