Last year I blogged about how to use the Text.BetweenDelimiters() function to extract all the links from the href attributes in the source of a web page. The code was reasonably simple but there’s now an even easier way to solve the same problem using the new Html.Table() function.
With new Dynamics 2018, there is a lot of improvement in a Web Client. One of the first improvements is availability of Print Preview for non-Internet Explorer browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Safari). In these cases, the Preview button didn’t appear on the request pages of reports. Now it exists.
Generally, when we set up Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the authentication method by default is ‘Windows’.
Windows Authentication : This method allows you to connect to NAV as the current Windows user.
Username Authentication : This method requires that the user provide a User name, Password, and Domain name. Users are authenticated using their Windows account
Just a quick note for those who might be wondering because as far as I can see there is no public documentation about it: According to the ISV branding guide, if you are qualified for certain exceptions you can do “Co-Branding” of NAV (and only under those circumstances are you allowed to do this).
This time around I’d like to step you through setting up a new Web Client instance for Dynamics NAV. If you’re ever in the situation where you have access to the Desktop or ClickOnce Client but the Web Client was not setup for whatever reason, this will guide you through it and it’s very easy to get it setup.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV can be embedded in SharePoint online which will be available as an app in SharePoint. Thus, NAV data will be displayed on the SharePoint site. The user can then modify and save the data on the SharePoint site through the NAV web client. Also, web parts such as Sales Orders List, Customers List, etc. can be added to the SharePoint site.
