A new feature that has been overlooked in the recent blog articles highlighting what is new in Dynamics NAV 2018, is the improvement made to creating a Purchase Order (PO) instantly, from a Sales Order (SO).

It is clear that the future of NAV is Visual Studio Code and AL. And to be honest I find more fun and interesting to play with this “smart text editor” compared to the old “development UI” C/Side.

The latest release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, NAV 2018, offers a new feature called Employee Ledger Entries. This feature allows you to pay your employees with the same ease and efficiency as a vendor. Gwen demonstrates how to use this functionality to improve your efficiency.
