ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest – vol 85

ArcherPoint’s technical staff pose questions, find answers, and share new discoveries about Microsoft Dynamics NAV

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.

Saurav Dhyani offers a tip on upgrading to NAV 2016:

When upgrading To NAV 2016, if Approval Notification management is customized with a Dotnet component, please do not set RunonClient Property to TRUE, because Notification Entries in NAV 2016 run Via NAS which runs on Server.
