Microsoft has released new Cumulative Updates for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 (CU18) and NAV 2013 R2 (CU11), today. Both of them, includes all application and platform hotfixes and regulatory features.
Microsoft Dynamics Team Blog publish one interesting article today. This one is about impact of Reservations in the Planning and Projected availability calculation. Does planning and projecting system include or not reserved quantities in the calculation?
Excellent described processes.
I have just finished testing installation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 on different Server platforms. I’m looking for minimum system requirements for this new release.
On the end, I can tell you that new Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 works fine on following system (but only on 64-bit editions):
- Windows Server 2008 R2
- SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2
Of course, NAV 2015 works excellent on all newer systems.
One notice, when you install NAV 2015 on this configuration, you previously have to install Windows PowerShell 3.0. Also, you have to add Windows Search on your Windows Server 2008 R2, adding it from the Server Manager.
More about NAV 2015, after keynote on Directions US (September 14th).
Last year I wrote about inventory planning in Microsoft Dynamics NAV (most of them is for NAV2013 or/and NAV2013R2) on my old blog. I think, I can make small reminder on these articles, because this is always current topic.
This is small ‘Table Of Content’ with links to the articles on my blog on the Microsoft Dynamics Community.

OK, I need to finish with remaining subtopics, and because of that I made this reminder here.
I already wrote about this topic. I want to tell you more about NAV 2015, but I need to wait. We got the message that after Directions US keynote, we can speak all we now about this NAV release. This is only 12 days and after that, I will make blog series about NAV 2015. I can’t wait.
If you can, the best solution is to come on some conferences, scheduled in following one or two months to see NAV 2015 in live:
-Directions US, San Diego (14.09.-16.09.) http://www.navdirections.com/
-Directions EMEA, Poznan (08.10.-10.10.) http://www.directionsemea.com/
-NAVUG Summit, St. Luis (14.10.–17.10.) http://www.navug.com/
-Convergence EMEA, Barcelona (04.10.-06.10.) http://www.microsoft.com/dynamics/convergence/europe14/?p=topnav
-NAV TechDays, Antwerp (19.11.-21.11.) http://www.navtechdays.com/
Also, you can expect a lot of new “How Do I” videos about Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015.
In last few months, I found a lot of information about new version of NAV – Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015. But, all of these information are the pieces of the mosaic.
In last period, I use a lot of my time for testing this new NAV version, and I can said we will get a lot of new things, especially on technically field. But, I still cannot write about all of these, because of NDA.
I will try to present a few small thing, but only these who already is known and presented on some conferences by Microsoft.
Microsoft introduce us with new features on tiles. Now, we can use it, not only for documents. Now, we can use them for decimal, percent and so on. We can also put it different color, depends of result in tiles. We have here some additional benefits, but about this some other time.
Word Report Layout
Now in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, except RDLC layout, we can use Word layout also. This will be especially intended for sales documents. Now, it is pretty easier customizing these report layouts even by customers.
Tablet client is one of the most expected features in new NAV. This is because, it can be used on Windows tablet devices, but also on iPad or Android. Generally, you will have the most of functionalities on this client, but adapted to tablets way of using.
Yes, it has still more features. And you will see, this is a lot of news. But, you need to wait about a month. The most of them will be presented on Directions in San Diego and Directions EMEA in Poznan. See you there.
