I’ve never talked about this feature of Business Central (and NAV 2017) that I find interesting and that can be useful. It can be used to store and manage some information related to articles in a simple way; it is not a product configurator but can be useful and can be enhanced with some small customizations.
A leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) software suite, Microsoft Dynamics NAV provides users with a range of specialized functionalities to enable better organization and control of assets. Central to this are the facilities that allow users to customize organization to best suit their business needs.
What is a Nonstock Item? An item can be defined as stock or nonstock based on whether it has stock entries associated with it. The Nonstock Item contains information about items that your company sells but does not carry in inventory. When you want to start maintaining these items in inventory, you can convert them to normal item cards in two ways:
Are you wanting to add some additional information and details regarding certain items in your inventory but there are no available fields to add them? As we know there are Description and Description 2 fields in the Item table. However, you can also use the comments section, but will it hold all the information that the you require?
Have you ever been in a situation where a you wanted to add some additional details about the Items in your inventory and you did not know where to add them? There are Description and Description 2 fields in the Item table, or you can use extended text or comments, but can it hold all the information that you want? For example, when NAV is integrated with an online store, that might demand more information about the Item in a structured way rather than having all the information flat in a Description field.
