ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest – vol 86

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.

Alan Campbell shared an infographic on The User Experience Umbrella:

As many of us know, the User Experience requires a team effort. Sometimes, it is easy to overlook all the contributors and the roles they play. This infographic outlines the roles and functions of the team involved in the task of creating a unique user experience.

Dan Sass shared an article on design and user experience:

Microsoft designers are looking at user experience and design in a radical new way, and it can change the way design is conducted for companies in the future. It involves designing for the outliers (the elderly, the handicapped, etc.), not the “typical” user.

This article meant something to me, personally, because I suffer from color blindness, and I appreciate products that do not rely on color coding to be used effectively. This article is definitely worth a read, particularly by designers and developers.

From the article:

“Inclusive design, by bringing a diverse set of users into a design process that typically strips away differences and abstracts them into what seems user-friendly to the maximum number of people, can actually help with the fact that our capabilities change throughout the day.“

Suzanne Scanlan shared an article on a major shift in Google advertising:

Google is rolling out a dramatic change that removes ads from the right side of its desktop search results, and places ads only at the top and/or bottom of the page.
