NAV 2016 Phone Client

Few months ago, Microsoft has announced new Phone Client for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016. With today’s NAV 2016 general availability, we can check it. First, NAV has new icon; sails no longer exist. This is new set of icons:

And now again, Phone Client. You can download new NAV 2016 App for iPhone from Apple iTunes. Also it is possible to download from Google Play and Windows Store. You just need to type “Dynamics NAV” in search and you can easy find them. Download them and type your service, username and password. Finally, you can use NAV on all devices and all systems. It looks line:

NAVMobile

If you’ve just installed NAV 2016 from Partner Source, you can check how it looks like using Web browser. You just need to add phone.aspx behind .. /WebClient/ (smilar as for Tablet Client emulation) and change the size of browser to emulate phone size; and you don’t need a HTTPS certificates. You will see that Phone Client looks awesome and everything works fine and smoothly. And you can use camera from your phone directly in NAV, for example for document capturing. But for this feature, you have to use this app from phone, because camera cannot be emulated from your browser.

More news, soon.

Bank Data Conversion Service for NAV 2015

Few months ago, when I wrote about Posting Groups and Payment Posting, I got a few comments about some related topic. This topic was a Bank Data Conversion Service for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 as part of the improved reconciliation capabilities. This service hosted on Microsoft Azure is delivered by AMC Consult A/S and provides automatic processes fro electronic payments, payment reconciliation and bank account reconciliation in NAV.

I didn’t have enough time to write about this topic, but now Microsoft has published article about this topic. Sorry to my followers because I didn’t finish it faster then Microsoft, but I can help them with relations to information. You can find a lot of information and additional documents (pptx and videos) on Partner Source: https://mbs.microsoft.com/partnersource/global/readiness-training/readiness-training-news/BankDataConversionServicebyAMCConsult.

New Dynamics Logos

Microsoft has decided to change Dynamics logos in the spirit of “One Microsoft” idea. This change has made on July 30. All partners have to use these new logos when represent Microsoft Dynamics logo and solutions. All directions are in the Product Tile Usage Guidelines.

On some places on internet, you can find a small mistake. You can find “CS” instead of “C5”. This error is most likely caused on MicrosoftDynamicsPartnerGuidelines.pptx (slide 21) from Partner Source. But, you can find actual logos on this page on Partner Source: https://mbs.microsoft.com/partnersource/northamerica/sales-marketing/branding-guidelines-logos/MSDY_BoxShots. You can download all of them as PNG or EPS. I hope, Microsoft will correct this small mistake in document, because this pptx is very useful. You can find a lot of additional helpful information here.
