How To: Moon Power Make-Up – Working with Custom Report Layouts in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central or NAV

When we do Microsoft Dynamics Business Central or Dynamics NAV development, one of our goals is to minimize the work required during an upgrade.

It’s easier to upgrade, and it’s not any harder than modifying the existing report layout. I’ll talk you through custom report layout limitations, how you can make a custom report layout, and why you would want one.

Graphical planning tools in Dynamics NAV and Business Central

The complete\detailed planning in Dynamics 365 Business Central (and in Dynamics NAV sure..) is done through the MPS\MRP planning which can be launched from the planning worksheet (you can find some posts on the planning parameters in this blog); However, it is also possible to use other tools that can be used for job planning or for lean production planning that do not require multi-level planning.
