Using NAV Outlook Client on iPhone

Today I held presentation about features in NAV 2017 and D365 for Financials. When I presented working with NAV 2017 in Outlook, I remembered that I had never show how we can use NAV (or D365 for Financials) in Outlook on the phone. I’m not sure if someone wrote about this and I want to give you some directions about it.

If you use standard Office application on your phone, you can not use this App for NAV/Financials. But we still can provide it. If you have iPhone, you can download OWA for iPhone from App Store. When you install this app, you can use all features as we used on standard desktop or online Outlook about NAV/Financials, but you need to use the latest update of Office 365 for business.

When you install and login as Office 365 user, you can notice that when you receive mail, you will see small add-in Financials/NAV. You can use this add-in or if you have some document link, just click on link and open a document. You can see all standard information as on standard Outlook or edit something. On the same way, you can run this add-in from calendar as well.

If you want to have everything the same on your iPad, just download the same App and repeat all steps.

Surface Pro 3 vs. iPad Pro

First I want to apologize because this is not topic I have a big knowledge. But I use Surface Pro 3 everyday. I still can remember that people said Surface sucks and iPad is the great machine. OK, what now? I suppose, now it is a cool thing, because Apple made it…

I still didn’t see this new iPad and I have knowledge only from some articles. OK, all computers have something better compared to other. On first sight, iPad pro is thinner and slightly lighter and has better screen resolution… and yes, better camera (but this is still computer, not a camera). But on iPad, you can choose 32 or 128 GB of storage and you cannot expand it. For business needs, this is frivolity. On other side, Surface Pro 3 has 62/128/256/512 GB of storage. Apple hasn’t said how much memory is inside, but we know Surface has 4 or 8 GB. Apple Pencil is a $99, but you are getting it in package when you are buying Surface Pro 3. Apple keyboard is more expensive and it miss a touch pad. On other side, on Surface I can use a full Windows 10 and of course, this is not a new device. Microsoft will release Surface Pro 4 soon and we will see what news we will get in new MS device.

By my opinion iPad is awesome device, but it is still a toy. Surface is seriously device for working and I will choose Surface in the future. Maybe Surface is not so cool, but I need a tool not a fancy toy.

As I’ve already said I’m not an expert for this area. You can find more seriously articles here. I will continue with my NAV :).
