There was plenty of curiosity as to Whats New in NAV 2016 just before late last year, when Microsoft rolled out NAV 2017. There is a slight change in the question now, which is what new is there in the latest Microsoft Dynamics NAV Upgrade.
Microsoft has introduced Application Area Property as a feature in the Best ERP Software for small and mid-segment businesses upgrade 2017 and also for Dynamics 365.
What is the feature about? It is a property assigned to everything visible to the user in the Front End. These can be page fields, page actions, report request page, XML port request page and Menusuite. All of these that have been mentioned are controls, and they have a new property known as Application Area.
How does Application Area impact the NAV 2017 user? If an example is to be cited, then it can be of an item list or a card that is accessible by a sales user, purchase user, manufacturing user or a warehouse user. Application Area on each field of the page will change the look based on which the user of NAV accesses the record.
How does one control Application Area in NAV 2017? To put it in simple words, it cannot be configured at a User Level, perhaps maybe with a Future Cumulative Update. Application Area for NAV 2017 is only configurable at the Company Level in the premier enterprise resource planning solution for small/mid-level companies.
All companies across Australia and New Zealand ought to get in touch with their nearest Microsoft Dynamics Partner. Fijian companies ought to contact their nearest Microsoft Dynamics Partner Fiji to know how they ought to specify in the Application Area Property. The default value usually remains BLANK and the supported values are ALL, Basic, suite, Relationship Management, Jobs and Fixed Assets.
Application Area can be set for Company, by Navigating to Company Information Page and Selecting User Experience. It must be known that once the value has been selected, it cannot be changed from the Front End.
