Office Integration

Integrating with Microsoft OneNote With Navision 2015

You can set up Microsoft Dynamics NAV to work with Microsoft OneNote.

For example, you can use OneNote integration to synchronize notes from a mobile OneNote installation with Microsoft Dynamics NAV. You can also use OneNote to share pictures, recordings, and other instructions across a company.

When you set up OneNote integration, you can enable adding notes to a particular record or to a complete page

Note: You cannot set up Microsoft Dynamics NAV to work with OneNote in multitenant deployments.

With Microsoft OneNote integration you can attach notes to customers, items, or invoices.

OneNote notes can be created for a specific record, but also for a whole page depending on the setup.

You can attach notes, reminders, or pictures to a specific record such as a customer. You can also create a note attached to a whole page, so there are separate instructions about how to deal with customers, items, or journals.

Pages notes can only be used on pages that are based on a source table. This means that, for example, the Role Center page cannot use page notes.

Note: OneNote integration lets users share their OneNote repository, which means that information in a shared OneNote repository can be read by all persons having access to that repository.
