NAV and D365 Roadmap and New Ideas

In the last period, we used to have one slide with roadmap about future release of Dynamics NAV with few expected enhancements. But now, instead of this, we have new dedicated site for roadmap. You just need to run here, and you will open this site. Generally, when open it, you can see this is for Dynamics 365, but when you change to Business Edition and choose Dynamics 365 for Financials, you can see all new future features for both of products D365 for Financials and Dynamics NAV.

Roadmap

But this is just to know what will be in a future. Of course, some strategic features will not be announce here and we need to wait to see them official release. But I am sure, the most of you want to be more engaged in this part “what will be in the future”. In the past (and now) we have a Connect site. This was a place where you could add new product suggestions. But generally it was for the current and past NAV versions and it was used mostly for some bugs and improvement ideas.

Connect

Now we have something better. You just need to go to https://ideas.dynamics.com/ for all Dynamics 365 products or to https://ideas.dynamics.com/ideas/dynamics-financials for Dynamics 365 for Financials and as I already said for the Dynamics NAV (because they are the same in the basic). On this site, you can suggest new idea or vote for some of existing idea. This forum is very nice created and it is important that every day you can see current status of your suggestion.

Ideas

Of course if you want to suggest a new idea or to vote, you must be signed in, because it will not be a fair to put something as anonimus. But with all this organization, I’m really sure that we will get amazing products in the future.

There are a really lot of application and platform hotfixes for the NAV 2016 and proportionately less for older versions. All versions, except NAV 2013 have both of application and platform hotfixes. NAV 2013 has only few application hotfixes. Some of them are common hotfixes for more versions, and some of them are only for one version.

You can check all hotfixes and download these cumulative updates on the following links:

CU 1 for NAV 2016 Has Been Released

The first cumulative update for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 has been released today. It includes all application and platform hotfixes and regulatory features. This cumulative update is known as Build 43402 and you can download it here from Partner Source.

One of the platform hotfixes is solving the issue when Dynamics NAV 2016 overwrites Dynamics NAV 2015 MMC controls. There are also some useful hotfixes as for example: G/L budgets do not export and import as in Dynamics NAV 2015, the password on the Setup page can be edited in view mode, cannot using of toolbar in report preview…

There are also a lot of application hotfixes for almost in all NAV modules.

But I’m not sure what exactly mean the feature: “Setting the language and regional format in the Web client setup is no longer supported”. If I understand it good…

But, first to install it and then more information.
