ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest - vol 218ArcherPoint's Developer Digest Weekly Blog

The NAV community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, is made up of developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating, with the common goal of  sharing helpful information with one another to help customers be more successful.

As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them on blogs, forums, social everyone can 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 community—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share this great information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from NAV experts and devotees around the world. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.

Advanced filtering is what it was all about. Apply filters to multiple fields to analyze trends or anomalies, or look for specific records. Much time is spent by users in lists in Business Central. Here are the highlights:

  • Filtering totals – FlowFields from Dynamics NAV are now available in Business Central, displaying aggregated or computed values.
  • Keyboard shortcuts – Users can work mouse-free using a variety of keyboard shortcuts.

Try it now by typing Shift+F3 in your online BC environment.
