Mail Sending Option in NAV 2017 with Cover Letter & Attachments –Part 1

Generally we get demand for customized mail body to send from Navision. Normally we use templates or html etc. coding to achieve this. In NAV 2017 this feature is now available in product itself. Today we will explore this feature available for Std. documents and learn to setup, further in next step we will apply same to our custom documents and learn where all places we need to take care development to get it working.

The cover letters are created using RDLC or Word layout customization features providing visual consistency with any attached pdf document.

Document Layout for a Customer

MSI-01

For Example say we want to setup different e-Mail body for specific customer. To achieve this we will assign a specific report by customer which will enable us to process multiple formats at the same time. We will use the Customer Layout from the customer card by Document Type to do this.

MSI-02

In above example I am setting up a customized cover letter designed using selected report.

The Send To Email The e-Mail will be sent to the e-Mail provided in the customer card or you can provide an extra e-Mail in this field or you can specify at the time of sending mail if not setup automatic.

Email Body Layout Description = Modern – Email Body (Choose from the Custom Report Layouts)

Use for E-mail Body select this if you wish to include output of selected report as Cover Letter to Email body.

Send and Receive E-Mail

We can now use the Send Email window to have a preview of what our layout will look like and the using the options we can send the e-Mail.

Let’s open a posted invoice for this customer.

MSI-03

On the Posted Sales Invoice click Send, which will open a window with some options, such as:

We can choose Email Prompt for Settings or use Default Settings

We can select how the attachment needs to be attached

We can also have Disk options as PDF or Electronic Documents if we use those.

Click OK. Before e-Mail is sent, we have the possibility to verify the e-Mail address, the subject line, the attachments and as per the Email Body Template, this is how the e-Mail will look like:

MSI-04

When we click OK, an e-Mail is sent to the Customer using the e-Mail Template.

By opening the e-Mail the recipient can see the contents of the invoice which has been sent using the template and the full invoice is also available as an attachment.

MSI-05

You can switch to a manual written message:

By using the Message Content field or

If you are using a client, you can open and edit the message in Outlook

MSI-06

In our next part of this post, we will see how we can enable this feature for our custom Pages & Documents.

Image Analysis feature in Dynamics NAV 2018

In Dynamics NAV 2018, the Image Analyzer extension uses the Computer Vision API to analyze images that are attached to contact persons and items.

For example, this is useful for items because it lets you build up a stockpile of metadata about what you sell and use it to fine-tune search results when someone is browsing your web shop.

Image Analyzer is free in Dynamics NAV, but there is a limit to the number of items that you can analyze during a certain period of time. By default, you can analyze 100 images per month.

After you enable the extension, Image Analyzer runs each time you import an image to an item or contact person. You will see the attributes, confidence level, and details right away, and can decide what to do with each attribute. If you imported images before you enabled the Image Analyzer extension, you must go to the item or contact cards and choose the Analyze Picture action.

Requirements

There are a few requirements for the images:

  • Image formats: JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP
  • Maximum file size: Less than 4 MB
  • Image dimensions: Greater than 50 x 50 pixels

How to enable Image Analyzer

To enable the Image Analyzer extension, do one of the following:

Method-1 : Open an item or contact card. In the notification bar, choose Analyze Images, and then follow the steps in the assisted setup guide.

 

IA-1

This will launch Image Analyser assisted setup guide, follow the step.

 

IA-2

IA-3

IA-4

Once you are done It will import your image for Analysing.

IA-5

 

Method-2 : Access the Service Connections, and then choose Image Analysis Setup.

IA-5.1

Choose the Enable Image Analyzer check box, and then complete the steps in the assisted setup guide.

IA-5.2

For URL and Key follow these steps:

Click on Computer Vision API Documentation

IA-6

Click on Try Computer Vision API

IA-7

Select your API Computer Vision API and then Get API Key

IA-8

Agree to T & C select your Country/Region and then Next

IA-9

Sign-In with the preferred account sign-in method

IA-10

Once done you will land on page which will have your Endpoint URL and Key

You must add /analyze at the end of the API URI, if it isn’t already there.

IA-11

Enter your Endpoint URL and Key and close the window.

IA-12

Now you import your Image, or select Analyze Picture if already imported

IA-13

This will analyze the Image and provide you with the Attributes.

The Image Analyzer Attributes page displays the detected attributes, the confidence level, and other details about the attribute. Use the Action to perform options to specify what to do with the attribute.

 

This is how you enable and configure your Image Analyzer Service.

 

To see how many analyses you have left in the current period

You can view the number of analyses you’ve done, and how many you can still do, in the current period.

Enter Image Analyzer Setup, and then choose the related link.

The Limit type, Limit value, and Analyzes performed provide the usage information.

 

To stop using the Image Analyzer extension

Enter Service Connections, and then choose Image Analyzer Setup.

Clear the Enable Image Analyzer check box.

 

I will come with more details as I proceed.

Extensions 2.0 – Dynamics Navision 2018

The issue with customizations is that they often introduce challenges when upgrading. It’s hard to upgrade a solution from one version to the next when changes have been made to the underlying solution. Extensions, and the new version – Extensions 2.0 – solves this problem.

Instead of defining customizations in the original source code, extensions are written alongside the solution source, where the integration with the source is handled with events. An extension can add new objects and extend existing objects that are present in the solution. The extension code is packaged in a file, which you can deploy to your solution. This allows us to upgrade the underlying solution and, as long as the events remain, the extension will behave in the same way from version to version.

To help you developing solutions for this new programming pattern, you can use the new developer tools to build, test, and deploy extensions.

 

In app designer

In the client, you can switch to the in app designer mode that provides a way for you change the look and feel of the client easily and quickly. In short, the in-client designer lets you define what elements (such as fields, groups) appear on a page and how they are arranged. The in-client designer also provides an interactive way to create extensions based on changes you make in the client. Some of the features include:

  • Adding a field from the source table to a page.
  • Moving a field to another place on a page.
  • Removing a field from a page.
  • Previewing your design in desktop, tablet, and phone clients.
  • Saving the changes for the tenant or saving as an extension package file in Visual Studio Code.
  • Changing the caption of a fields on the page.
  • Adding, moving, renaming, and removing an action.
  • Adding, moving, and removing page parts.
  • Adding new pages.

 

Personal and organizational design changes

As an end user, changes can be applied so that only the user who made the changes will see them. This enables users to personalize the pages for their role. Examples of personalization could include moving important fields to a more prominent position on the page, or renaming a date field so that it is clearer which field is the ship date versus the expected arrival date. Alternatively, as an administrator, changes can be made globally, so that everyone in the organization can see them.

Business consultants can also access the same tools to help customers make changes to their solution, resulting in improvements in productivity for all users. For example, they could add new actions to run custom reports, or introduce entirely new pages or page parts.

 

Working with the In App Designer

To turn on the In-App Designer, start the client as normal, and then simply choose the In-App designer icon in the ribbon on any page in the client.

 

ExtV2-1

The Design mode bar appears at the top page, indicating that the in-client designer is active. You can now open any page, and start making changes.

ExtV2-2

Choose More to display additional design options, such as adding a field, creating a new field, and changing the preview to another client type.

ExtV2-3

 

ExtV2-4

To move a field, click and hold the handle in the field to drag and drop it from its current position to the new location, as indicated by the horizontal line.

ExtV2-5

To remove a field, click the field’s handle, and then choose Remove.

ExtV2-6

To add a field, choose the Field button, and then drag and drop a field from the list that appears to the desired location.

ExtV2-7

To preview in another client type, simply choose one of the preview buttons.

When you are finished making changes, choose Stop Designing. You then have the option to save the changes to the tenant for all users, or to save the changes to a file that you can work on later in Visual Studio Code.

ExtV2-8

You can see that Extension is deployed on your solution, check as below.

ExtV2-9

Hope you will enjoy using this new feature of development.

Will come with more details as I proceed.

Configuring Visual Studio Code to Use Modern Development Environment with Dynamics NAV 2018

After installing Dynamics NAV 2018, I want to configure Visual Studio Code with Dynamics NAV to use new Development tool.

Before we start lets verify few things and update accordingly.

NDE-1

You can download VS Code from here:-Click to download Visual Studio Code

Install and Launch the Visual Studio Code.

Now Click View -> Extensions.

NDE-2

Click on … to open the extension menu.

Click on Install from VSIX

NDE-3

You can find VSIX file on the installation medium path:

“ModernDev\program files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\110\Modern Development Environment”

or in the

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\110\Modern Development Environment”

NDE-4

This will install AL Language Version 0.12.15355

NDE-5

Once the Extension installation is complete, follow below steps

Press Alt+A, Alt+L to trigger the Go! Command

NDE-6

Enter Project Name and Press Enter

NDE-7

Choose “Your own server”

Once you select the “Your own server” you will see a code like below in the “launch.json” file.

NDE-8

Update the information to look similar to below:-

NDE-9

I have updated my ServerInstance as DynamicsNAV110 (you check your instance name if changed while installing server)

I have updated my Authentication as Windows (I am using Windows authentication update what yours use accordingly)

I have added Port as 8049 (please check and use accordingly you are using the port, if using default 7049 then this step not required)

Now save your File. And Press <CTRL + F5>.

NDE-12

Enter your Credentials.

The server url and the web client url are assumed to be the same. That is not the case. The two settings we talked about above, the server url and the developer port number, are the only settings you need in the launch.json.

When VS Code publishes the extension to the NAV server, the NAV server returns the web client url as a response. This url is then opened in the browser. No setting needed in the launch.json at all.

The NAV server reads that setting from the Web Client Base Url server setting.

NDE-13

NDE-11

Your Extension is published, you can verify as below:

NDE-10

Now you are good to go with developing your Extensions using New Modern Development Tool using AL.

I hope this may have clarified your doubt on how VS Code and the NAV server work together!

I will come with more details as I proceed.

Comparison of NAV 2018 W1 Objects with NAV 2017 W1 Objects – What’s Difference

With the release of NAV 2018, first thing that comes to mind is how much objects are changed from previous version. To check this I have performed small comparison straight forward on NAV 2017 W1 and NAV 2018 W1 database objects.

I have used power shell commands for quick comparison.

Here we go->

  • To compare two sets of application objects
  • Open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Shell in administrator mode.
  • Navigate to the location of your folders by typing a command such as the following:

UpgradeStep-1

In this example, the DEMOUPGRADE folder contains five folders: ORIGINAL, MODIFIED, TARGET, DELTA, and RESULT. The DELTA and RESULT folders are empty. The ORIGINAL, MODIFIED, and TARGET folders contains one or more text files that contain application objects. You can now run the cmdlet. In my case Original = NAV 2017 W1 and Modified = NAV 2018 W1objects.

  • To run the cmdlet to compare all application objects in the ORIGINAL folder to the application objects in the MODIFIED folder, type the following command:

Compare-NAVApplicationObject -OriginalPath .\ORIGINAL -ModifiedPath .\MODIFIED -DeltaPath .\DELTA

UpgradeStep-2

UpgradeStep-2-3

This generates a number of DELTA files that describe the difference between ORIGINAL and MODIFIED. You can open the DELTA files in text editors such as Notepad.

The following example illustrates how a DELTA file identifies the difference between ORIGINAL and MODIFIED.

UpgradeStep-3

You can identify those differences in DELTA folder.

UpgradeStep-4

However on top level review I found there is major change in properties, changes in field size and new codes additions.

Out of which 1014 objects have minor changes like insert, modify or deletion of simple properties or one line code etc.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV ‘Tenerife’ Developer Preview

As everyone is aware by now that Preview of Development Tools for Dynamics NAV have been released. Going forward which can be used to build extensions and apps in and for Dynamics NAV.

This tool introduces two flavors which you can try out in preview available on cloud.

[A] Make an extension in the client itself. Business consultants and UX designers will love using this drag-and-drop interface. Rearrange fields, rename groups, and reposition elements to build a perfect extension to support an industry-specific solution or implement a business process optimization.

[B] Use the AL Extension for NAV in Visual Studio Code to build powerful extensions based on tables, pages, and codeunits using the new objects: Page Extensions and Table Extensions. Follow this route to build rich extensions that reuse and extend core business logic in your application.

For more details you can refer to the article published by Dynamics NAV Team Announcing the Preview of Development Tools for Dynamics NAV

You can get a free 30-day trial from https://azure.microsoft.com/free/ that will give you access to everything you need.

Secondly, head over to http://aka.ms/navdeveloperpreview. Login to your Azure Subscription. Select your subscription, resource group, location, name, and a VM Admin Password. Leave the remaining fields as their defaults. Accept the terms, Pin to dashboard and select Purchase. The instance takes about 5 minutes to set up, and the VM will be ready about 15 minutes after Azure says Deployment Succeeded.

You need to follow on screen instructions to get everything setup using above 2 links provided.

I am not going to repeat the steps as you can find them via other blogs or follow the steps as you proceed via using above two links.

Few of my readers were complaining about they don’t have access to Azure Subscription or they have already used up the limit now what to do?

Same situation was with me too, but however I managed to get one and done bit RND, if this can be setup on my PC so that I can give it a try or others can use same steps to get it configured, and give it a try.

However I got succeeded in doing so, now I can do the same in my environment.

The Steps I am going to explain below is not the straight forward, and require bit tricks, as required components are yet not released from Microsoft, may we can get in CU-2,  I guess or later when Microsoft is OK to release this feature for everyone.

This action will require several pre-requisite to be fulfilled:

  1. Visual Studio Code (To be Installed)
  2. Dynamics Navision Version (10.0.14540)
  3. Some Modification to web.config to enable designer in Web Client

 

STEP-1

You can download the Visual Studio Code from this link: Click Here

Once file is downloaded install the Visual Studio Code by running VSCodeSetup-1.8.1.exe

And follow the on screen instructions to complete the setup.

 

td-01td-02td-03td-04td-05td-06td-07td-08td-09

STEP-2

Dynamics Navision Version

Make sure you have correct version of Dynamics Navision (10.0.14540)

td-10

Else you will not get this option in your Service Window

td-11

STEP-3

Modification to web.config

You will need to make necessary settings to web.config file to enable designer in Web Client, this file is located at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\DynamicsNAV100 location where your Web Client is installed.

td-12

td-13

 

Now you should be ok to use this feature in your environment.

Once things are setup correct you will be able to find the Client Designer Button on right top corner of the Client Window/Browser.

I will come up with more details in my up-coming posts till then keep exploring and learning.

 

 

 

New Changes or features for Developer and IT Pro Changes in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017

Although it is too early to discuss on features and capabilities which we are going to get in our new release, we should wait for exact information post release of same.

Here are few extracts from available documents pre-release of the product.

You will find most of the features similar to which we have discussed in our earlier posts for Madeira Preview Project.

New thing is capability of extensions and Web Services are enhanced and programmatically handling Notifications.

 

Extensions

Dynamics NAV 2017 includes many new capabilities for Extensions:

  1. You can now include reports, XMLports, and queries in your extension along with new custom report templates.
  2. Default or initial data for new tables as part of your extension. These data will be included in the package file (.navx) and inserted into the table at the time of installation of the extension.
  3. You can include translated captions and constants for one or more languages by including object language files in the extension package.
  4. A translation only extension could be built that translates strings for base objects or objects for another extension.
  5. You can include and deploy .NET interop types executed on the server, client-side JavaScript or WinForms extensibility control add-ins.
  6. Extension can include a web service and configure it for the tenant the extension is being installed for in a multitenant deployment.
  7. Two new C/AL functions NAVAPP.RESTOREARCHIVEDATA and NAVAPP.DELETEARCHIVEDATA, you can easily restore or delete archived table data during a reinstall or upgrade of the extension.
  8. Use the NAVAPP.RESTOREARCHIVEDATA function to simply copy the data back from the archive table when special upgrade logic is not required.
  9. Use the NAVAPP.DELETEARCHIVEDATA function in situations where you do not want to restore the archived data for the table.
  10. You can publish an extension to a Dynamics NAV Server instance that is configured with an Azure SQL Database using new parameters added to the Publish-NAVApp cmdlet. The new parameters are used to provide the location and credentials for connecting to an existing Azure SQL database you created.
  11. Users with the appropriate permissions in the application can install and uninstall extensions from the Extensions Management page. The page will display all of the extensions that are currently published.

 

Web Services in multitenant deployments

You can publish per-tenant web services in situations where a web service has not been published for all tenants of the service.

You can also package and deploy published web services for base objects or extension objects in an extension.

The packaged web services will be published to the tenant for which the extension is being installed.

 

Notifications in the UI

Dynamics NAV 2017 introduces a programmatic way to send non-intrusive notifications to the UI in the Dynamics NAV Web client.

Notifications provide users with information about a current situation, but do not require any immediate action or block users from continuing with their current task.

In the UI, notifications appear in the Notification bar (similar to validation errors) at the top of the page on which a user is currently working.

Notifications that are defined on sub-pages, for example in parts and FactBoxes, appear in the same Notification bar.

Validation errors on the page will be shown first.

In the development environment, you create notifications in C/AL by using the newNotification and NotificationScope data types and the following functions.

  1. MESSAGE specifies the content of the notification that appears in the UI
  2. SCOPE specifies the scope in which the notification appears, which can be LocalScope or GlobalScope.
  3. A LocalScope notification appears in context of what the user is currently doing, while GlobalScope notifications are not directly related to the current task. Note: GlobalScope is currently not supported.
  4. SEND sends the notification to be displayed by the client.
  5. ADDACTION adds an action on the notification. Actions enable you to create interactive notifications that provide users with different actions that they can take to address the notification, like opening an associated page for modifying data. A notification action calls a function in a codeunit that you define, passing the notification object in the call. You then add business logic to the function for handling the action.
  6. SETDATA and GETDATA set and retrieve a data property value for the notification, which is typically needed when actions are invoked.

The following example illustrates the simplified code for local scope notification that has an action:

VAR

CreditBalanceNotification@1170000000 :Notification;

PROCEDURECreditBalanceCheck@1170000023(Customer@1170000000 : Record 18);

BEGIN

//Create the notification

CreditBalanceNotification.MESSAGE(‘Thecustomer”s current balance exceeds

their credit limit’);

CreditBalanceNotification.SCOPE :=NOTIFICATIONSCOPE::LocalScope;

//Add a data property for the customernumber

CreditBalanceNotification.SETDATA(‘CustNumber’,Customer.”No.”);

//Add an action that calls the ActionHandler codeunit, which you define  in the next step.

CreditBalanceNotification.ADDACTION(‘Gohandle this’,

CODEUNIT::NavExtensionInstallationMgmt, ‘OpenCustomer’);

//Send the notification to the client.

CreditBalanceNotification.SEND;

END;

In the “Action Handler” codeunit, you would add code to handle the action in a global function, called OpenCustomer, which has a Notification data type parameter. You could use the GETDATA function to get the value of the data sent with the notification:

PROCEDUREOpenCustomer@1170000024(theNotification@1170000000 :

Notification);

VAR

CustNo@1170000001 : Code[20];

BEGIN

// Do the code to handle the action.Optionally retrieve data carried by

the notification.

CustNo :=theNotification.GETDATA(‘CustNumber’);

// …

END;

 

Setup data in the US version

The US version of Dynamics NAV 2017 includes two RapidStart packages that will enable a fast implementation for a new company.

These data packages come with a new Windows PowerShell script to upload to server – and can be enabled for new companies.

Create a new company in the Companies page, and choose the Enable assisted setup field.

Then, use the Import-NAVConfigurationPackageFile cmdlet to import the RapidStart packages.

Then open the new company, the packages are applied, and you will be taken through an assisted setup experience.

 

Application area tagging

The Application Areas system offers developers, administrators, and users the ability to define differentiated user experiences according to application scope.

By selecting a set of application areas, users only see UI elements that are specific to the application features that they need to perform their tasks.

When companies want to create differentiated user experiences, the Application Areas system should be considered as an option not compulsory to adopt.

 

Time series library

One of the most popular topics for machine learning is forecasting based on historical data.

Many algorithms are there that can do this, but you do not have to know them, because MS have wrapped them for us.

Five of these algorithms, are wrapped in one Azure ML experiment, added logic that compares different results and returns the best one accompanied by an indicator of the prediction’s quality.

There is also a generic API on top of this that allows Dynamics NAV developers create their own functionality that helps customers find the business-critical information that may be hidden in their database.

You can perform time-series analysis in the familiar development environment.

The time series library is used by the Sales and Inventory Forecast extension.

How to Setup Online Bank Feeds in Madeira

You need to be sure : The default company, CRONUS, that launches when you first log in to Project “Madeira” does not have electronic bank feeds enabled. To tryout this feature you must switch to trial Company “My Company“.

In Project “Madeira” you can connect to most of the online banks and download electronic bank feeds for use in bank reconciliation, avoiding tedious, manual reconciliation, reducing errors, and ensuring that your data is refreshed on a frequent basis.

When you log into MyCompany for the first time, a Company Setup wizard will guide you through setting up the basic company information, including using a bank feed service.

Dont forget to select “Use Bank Feed Service” in Company Setup Page to enable this Service.

You can Manage Bank Accounts & Feeds from Bank Account List Page.

BankStatementService-1

If you enable “Use Bank Feed Service” in Company Setup Page, a new section displays in the ribbon as shown in above screenshot with actions so that you can create a new bank account in Project “Madeira” based on the online bank feed, link already existing bank accounts to online bank feeds, unlinking online bank account feeds, or set up automatic download of feeds on a regular schedule.

When you reconcile bank accounts, you can download bank feeds on demand, as well as process automatically downloaded feeds if you have set up already.

In the Payment Reconcilliation Journal, you can import bank statements based on your bank feeds, and Project “Maderia“ will automatically suggest how payments are applied to ledger entries. You can change the application before you post.

Alternatively, you can import bank statements to the Bank Account Reconcilliation window and reconcile the statements with your ledger entries there.

I will come up with more details in my upcoming posts, till then keep practicing and Learning.

 

 

 

 

Configuring Session Timeout – Navision 2016

Dynamics NAV Windows client timeout configuration is managed at the service level by setting the Idle Client Timeout setting.

To configure the Dynamics NAV Windows client to time out after 10 minutes of idleness, you will require to set this to 00:10:00 and then restart the Dynamics NAV Server service so that the change comes in effect.

There are some additional settings

ClientServicesReconnectPeriod

ClientServicesMaxNumberOfOrphanedConnections,

When you start the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client or Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client, a connection is established with the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance and a corresponding session is added on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server includes several timeout settings that determine when a session closes as a result of inactivity over the client connection, lost client connection, or closing of the client.

You can configure this in CustomSettings.config file of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server.

ClientServicesReconnectPeriod :- This value determines the time during which a client can reconnect to an existing session on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server before a session closes.

ClientServicesIdleClientTimeout :- This value determines the interval of time that a Microsoft Dynamics NAV client connection can remain inactive before the session is closed.

You can configure this in the ClientSettings.config file of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client.

ClientServicesKeepAliveInterval :- This value determines the interval of time (in seconds) between keep-alive messages that are sent from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client to Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server. This value is also used, in part, to define the reconnect period when a connection is lost.

You can configure this in the web.config file of Microsoft Dynamics Web Server for the client.

SessionTimeout :- This value specifies how much of time that session remains open when there is no activity over the connection from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client to Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server.

SessionTimeOut-1

The SessionTimeout setting enables you to set the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client inactive session timeout different than for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client, which is only controlled by the ClientServicesIdleClientTimeout setting.

Typically, this is set the inactive session timeout period on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client connections shorter than for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client.

When the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client is inactive, reliable sessions automatically sends messages from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client to Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server.

You can control the interval of the keep-alive messages by setting the ClientServicesKeepAliveInterval setting on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client.

The default value of the ClientServicesKeepAliveInterval setting is 120 seconds (2 minutes).

If there is no activity on the client connection for duration of the load balancer’s idle timeout setting, then the load balancer might redirect the client connection to another server.

To avoid this condition, it is recommend that set the ClientServicesKeepAliveInterval to half the value of the load balancer’s idle timeout setting.

The idle timeout on Windows Azure is around 4 minutes, so the default setting of ClientServicesKeepAliveInterval (2 minutes) should be sufficient.

Occasionally, a Microsoft Dynamics NAV client can lose the network connection to Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server.

You can use ClientServicesReconnectPeriod setting on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server to control how long a session remains open after the connection is lost to allow time for the client to reconnect to the session.

 

SessionTimeOut-2

  • The connection is lost and the initial inactivity period starts (default is 4 minutes).
  • After the initial inactivity period, the service channel enters a faulted state. When the service channel is in the faulted state, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server considers the session with the client as orphaned and waits for it to reconnect.
  • If the client does not reconnect within the time period that is specified by the ClientServicesReconnectPeriod setting (default is 10 minutes), then Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server closes the session.
  • The session is then removed from the Active Session table in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

ClientKeepAlive:- This  setting is managed at the user level and located in the ClientUserSettings.config file.

The value of this setting is given in seconds and defines the interval between ‘pulse’ signals sent by the client to prevent the client from going idle in some scenarios, or for some users.

 

In Dynamics NAV 2016 Cumulative Update 8:

The ClientKeepAlive setting has been moved from the user level to the service level, and is no longer defined in number of seconds but as a time interval, just like the Idle Client Timeout setting.

 

Before Cumulative Update 8:

  1. In the server configuration file, set Idle Client Timeout  to 00:10:00
  2. In the client configuration file, set ClientKeepAlive  to any value  larger than 600 This value is in seconds, so 600 equals 10 minutes.

 

SessionTimeOut-3

After Cumulative Update 8:

  1. In the server configuration file, set Idle Client Timeout  to 00:10:00
  2. In the server configuration file, set Keep Alive Interval  to a value larger than 00:10:00

To configure the timeout for the Dynamics NAV Web client, it is sufficient to configure the SessionTimeout setting in the web.config file to the relevant interval – in above example it’s 00:10:00.

What’s New: Developer Changes for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016

NAV2016
Below are the details of new features and functionality that are available in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 and have been added to the product since Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015. It also describes features that have been deprecated since Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015.

Will come up with detail later in my future posts.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 introduces changes to the upgrade, development, deployment, and administration experiences compared to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015.

Redesigned C/AL Editor

The C/AL Editor in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment has been redesigned to give you more coding capabilities. Coding in the new C/AL editor is like before except you benefit from new features such as IntelliSense, name completion, change tracking, improved syntax highlighting and colorization.

Record Permissions and Apply Permissions Sets to User Groups

Administrators can record new permission sets in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016. Recording permissions is based on the code coverage functionality. You can access the various windows and activities in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client or the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client that you want users with this permission set to access. You must carry out the tasks that you want to record permissions for. Then, you can apply the new permission set to a group of users.

Events in C/AL

By implementing events in C/AL code, you can design applications to react to specific actions or behaviour that occur. Events enable you to separate customized functionality from the application business logic. By using events in the application where customizations are typically made, you can lower the cost of code modifications and upgrades to the original application.

Event Channels on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Events

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 introduces event channels on events that occur on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instances.

  • In addition to the Windows Application log, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server events are recorded in specific Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server logs in the Applications and Services Logs of Windows.
  • You can use Event Viewer to view trace events.
  • You can use FilterXpath parameter of the Get-WinEvent Windows PowerShell cmdlet to filter events for a specific Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

Multiple Namespaces on XMLports

You can define multiple namespaces on XMLports that import or export data as XML. This improves the ability to create XMLports that are compatible with the XML schemas that are used by the systems that consume or provide the Microsoft Dynamics NAV data.

Updating Custom Report Layouts by Using Upgrade Codeunits

You can update custom report layouts by creating upgrade codeunits to handle changes in report datasets that affect the report layouts. Upgrade codeunits enable you to programmatically update multiple custom report layouts in the database to changes in report datasets

Filter Pages for Filtering Tables

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 includes the new C/AL data type FILTERPAGEBUILDER. You can use the FILTERPAGEBUILDER data type and its functions to create a filter page that enables users to set filters on one or more tables.

C/AL Try Functions for Handling Errors

Try functions enable you to catch and handle errors that occur when running the application. You can use try functions to catch errors and exceptions that are thrown by Microsoft Dynamics NAV or .NET Framework interoperability operations.

HyperlinkHandler Function Type in Test Codeunits

You can write HyperlinkHandler functions in test codeunits to test hyperlink URLs that are passed to the HYPERLINK function.

Object Metadata Virtual Tables

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 includes the following virtual tables that contain metadata about Microsoft Dynamics NAV objects.

  • Codeunit Metadata virtual table
  • Page Metadata virtual table
  • Report Metadata virtual table
  • Table Metadata virtual table

New CLIENTTYPE Options Added

With Microsoft Dynamics NAV the CLIENTTYPE function has been expanded to support Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client and running the app in Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client, which is Desktop mode.

Column Layout on Role Centers

It is still possible to define groups as previously, and thereby keep the design of existing Role Centers. But when these Role Centers are displayed on larger screens, there is an automatic switch to a 4 column layout. When developing new Role Centers, it is now possible to not define any groups and let the dynamic layout handle the switch from 1 to 2 to 3 column layout, depending on the screen size.

Camera and Location

With Microsoft Dynamics NAV an API for integrating to a camera and getting GPS coordinates is available. The camera option is implemented in the application as functionality available when using Incoming Documents on, which you can see on, for example, the Accounting Manager profile.

Sizing Settings for Control Add-ins

To control that the sizing of the control add-ins is always optimal on all display targets a number of new settings are available to you when writing the manifest code.

Structure for Resource Files in Manifest

Microsoft Dynamics NAV supports resource files to be described in the manifest file with or without a relative path allowing you to organize and maintain resource files the way you prefer.

Tooltips on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client

The ToolTip Property and the ToolTipML Property have been added on ActivityButtons and ActionContainers of the subtype HomeItems to support displaying descriptions in the navigation pane.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Integration

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 introduces a new and improved integration with Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 includes a default integration setup that is supported by several objects, including tables, pages, and codeunits. You can customize these objects to extend the integration to other Microsoft Dynamics CRM entities and change processes like synchronization.

Additional Numeric Data Types Supported in Aggregations by Queries, FlowFields, and SIFT

In earlier versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, data aggregations (such as sum and average) on tables by Query objects, FlowFields, and SumIndexField Technology could only be done on Decimal data type fields. With Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 you can use Decimal, Integer, BigInteger, and Duration data types in aggregations.

Timestamp Field Available in Tables

Each table in Microsoft Dynamics NAV includes a hidden timestamp field. The timestamp field contains row version numbers for records as maintained in SQL Server. In earlier versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the timestamp field could not be used in tables. In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016, you can expose the timestamp field in tables, write code against it, add filters, and so on, similar to any other field in a table.

SQL Server Authentication

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 supports SQL Server authentication between the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance and the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database in SQL Server. Previously only Windows authentication was supported.

Microsoft Azure SQL Database Support

You can deploy a Microsoft Dynamics NAV database to Azure SQL Database. Azure SQL Database is a cloud service for data storage that is a part of the Azure Services Platform.

Automatic Deployment of Add-ins From the Database

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 now makes it possible to automatically deploy add-in assemblies (including client control add-ins, .NET Framework interoperability, and language resources) directly from Microsoft Dynamics NAV database to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance or client as required.

Running NAS Services with Administrator Rights

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016, you can set up NAS services to run with administrator rights, which grants the NAS service the same permissions as the SUPER permission set without having to add the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server service account as a user in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Tenant Configurations Stored in Application Database

In a multitenant Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server deployment, the configuration information about the tenants that are mounted on a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance is now stored in the application database (table dbo.$ndo$tenants) instead of a tenant.config file for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

When you want to mount or dismount a tenant, you only have to mount or dismount the tenant on one of the server instances for an application database because other server instances will automatically detect and apply the changes.

Loading Application Assemblies When Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Instances Start

You can configure a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance to compile all the business application assemblies and load them to cache memory when the server instance is started. The assemblies are then retrieved from memory when requested by a Microsoft Dynamics NAV client. This improves the response time after restarting a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

Automatic Company Initialization during Data Upgrade

When upgrading data to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016, this task is automatically performed for you by the upgrade process.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows Client Available in 64-Bit Version

On a 64-bit Windows operating system, the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client is available in 64-bit version and 32-bit version. By default, when you install the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client, the 64-bit version is used. The 64-bit version is better when you have to run several large reports. However, there are some components, such as COM, which are not supported on 64-bit applications. Therefore, you can also run the 32-bit version of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client if it is required.

Multilanguage Captions Compile as Unicode

When you compile application objects, Microsoft Dynamics NAV stores the objects in Unicode encoding. If the application objects contain Multilanguage captions, Microsoft Dynamics NAV uses the code pages that are relevant for the languages that you have specified.

What’s New: Application Changes for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016

NAV2016
Below are the details new features and functionality that are available in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 and have been added to the product since Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015.

Will come up with detail later in my future posts.

The following features and functionality for application users have been introduced since Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015.

Workflow

You can set up and use workflows that connect business-process tasks performed by different users. System tasks, such as automatic posting, can be included as steps in workflows, preceded or followed by user tasks. Requesting and granting approval to create new records are typical workflow steps.

Imp Note

The Document Approvals feature that existed in the previous version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV is removed. The standard approvals scenarios that were supported in the previous version are now supported as workflows for sales approvals and purchase approvals respectively.

The upgrade tool will recreate document approval data in previous versions as workflow data in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016.

Electronic Documents

As an alternative to e-mailing as file attachments, you can send and receive business documents electronically.

From PDF or image files representing incoming documents, you can have an external OCR service (Optical Character Recognition) create electronic documents that you can then convert to document records in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, like for electronic PEPPOL documents.

For example, when you receive an invoice in PDF format from your vendor, you can send it to the OCR service from the Incoming Documents window. After a few seconds, you receive the file back as an electronic invoice that can be converted to a purchase invoice for the vendor.

If you send the file to the OCR service by e-mail, then a new incoming document record is automatically created when you receive the electronic document back.

Incoming Documents

In the Incoming Documents window, you use different functions to review information, manage OCR tasks, and convert incoming documents to the relevant purchase and sales documents or journal lines in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

The external files can be attached to their related document in Microsoft Dynamics NAV at any process stage, including to posted documents and to the resulting vendor, customer, or general ledger entries.

Document Sending Profiles

You can set each customer up with a preferred method of sending sales documents, so that you do not have to select a sending option every time that you choose the Post and Send button.

In the Document Sending Profile window for a sending profile, you can select the Default check box to specify that the document sending profile is the default profile for all customers, except for customers where the Document Sending Profile field is filled with another sending profile.

Posting Preview

On every document and journal that can be posted, you can choose the Preview Posting button to review the different types of entries that will be created when you post the document or journal.

Deferrals

Revenues for services or goods delivered over multiple accounting periods are not necessarily recognized in the accounting period in which the sales document is posted and payment is received. To distribute revenues on the involved accounting periods, you can set up a deferral template for the resource, item, or G/L account that the revenues will be posted for. When you post the related sales document, the revenues are deferred to the involved accounting periods, according to a deferral schedule that is governed by settings in the deferral template and the posting date.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Integration

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 introduces a new and improved integration with Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Hiding/Showing Columns on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client

With Microsoft Dynamics NAV it is possible to hide and show columns on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client, in the same way as on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client.

Freeze Pane

Microsoft Dynamics NAV now supports freeze panes on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client and the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client.

Improvements on Lookups in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client

With this release the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client offers an inline lookup experience on fields as well as the ability to do cross column search as you type in the lookup and selecting data in the lookup using the keyboard.

Microsoft Social Engagement

Microsoft Dynamics NAV integrates with Microsoft Social Engagement and can be made available on customers, vendors, and items.

Cross Column Search on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client it is now possible to search across columns in a list. This search is activated by choosing the Search icon, and entering the search criteria. The search offers filter-as-you-type functionality, and will look for records that contain the search criteria. Symbols can also be used in the search criteria, and the search criteria are then interpreted exactly as you entered it.

Navigation Pane and Cues

Previously the navigation pane contained list places that were auto generated based on the available cues in the Role Center. These list places no longer get auto generated by default. Only if there is a relevant entity in the navigation pane, a list place will be created.

Entering Dates in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client you can now use the date lookup functionality on lists instead of typing dates in manually.

Control Add-ins on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client

On Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client you tap on control add-ins to zoom

Selecting Company, Language, Region, Time Zone and Work Date in Mobile Clients

With the new My Settings page, it is now possible to dynamically switch the UI language, region, time zone, company, and work date of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client.

Multiple Selection of Lines in Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client

You select multiple lines in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client by activating the context menu on a line, and then choosing Select More. When you choose Select More, a checkbox for selecting all rows is placed right above all the rows.

Updating and Testing Multiple Custom Report Layouts

Instead of updating custom report layouts to dataset changes one layout at a time, you can now perform an update of all custom layouts at once.

You also have the option to test updates without applying the required changes to the custom report layouts. This enables you to see what changes will be applied to the report layout and identify possible issues in the process.
