Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a complete enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solution for mid-sized organizations that is fast to implement, easy to configure, and simple to use. Right from the start, simplicity has guided, and continues to guide, innovations in product design, development, implementation, and usability. Below details show new features and functionality that are available in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 and have been added to the product since Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017.
What’s New for Application Users
The Setup and Extensions button provides a single place for settings. This new set of options has been added for the Business Manager and Accountant Role Centers. From the list of actions, you can open setup pages, either assisted or manual, and you can open setup pages for service connections and extensions. Third-party extension providers can add their actions to the list.
In the Manual Setup action group, each action refers to an area, such as General, Finance, and System. The row for each setup page has keywords allowing you to both search across setup pages and to filter the list to only see setup pages within a given area.
The new User Tasks allow you to create tasks to remind you of work to be done. You can create tasks for yourself and assign tasks to others or be assigned a task by someone else in your organization.
Employee ledger entries
In general journal lines, there is a new account type and new balancing account type, Employee. Posting a general journal line with Employee as account type or balancing account type will generate an employee ledger entry. When posting a general journal line for an employee, the Document type field must be either blank or set to Payment.
Preconfigured Excel reports
The Business Manager and Accountant Role Centers have a new option in the ribbon for Excel Templates. From the Excel Templates list, users can choose a preconfigured report that is ready to print from Excel.
Bulk posting of orders, invoices and credit memos
Are your sales going so well that you can’t process the avalanche of invoices fast enough? Is this luxury problem becoming a drain on resources? No worries, now you can process batches of orders, invoices, or credit memos in one go by choosing the documents, and then choosing Post selected.
