ArcherPoint Dynamics Developer Digest – vol 99Dynamics NAV Developer Digest

The ArcherPoint technical staff—made up of developers, project managers, and consultants – is constantly communicating internally, with the goal of sharing helpful information with one another.

As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them companywide on Yammer for everyone’s benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this group—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share them with the rest of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Community? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from the ArcherPoint staff. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.

Question about copying companies in the Role Tailored Client:

There was a feature in the classic client of NAV where you could copy setup tables from one company to another. I can't seem to find it in the Role Tailored Client. Does anyone know where to find that feature in the RTC or if it's still there?

Answered by Helle Madsen: In the RapidStart Services menu, go to Configuration Worksheet, and select the 'Copy Data from Company' action under Tools ribbon option. You need to have a line in the worksheet for each table you want to copy from, and there must be no records in the company for the selected table(s).

It’s very easy to setup and use and prevents endless emails trying to schedule a convenient time to meet with those that cannot see your calendar.
