Using Master Templates in Microsoft Dynamics NAV
In Dynamics NAV, you can create Master Templates that can be ‘applied’ when creating new Master Records.
These Master Records can be Items, Customers, Vendors, and so on.
In our sample database, there are already Master Templates set up.

This is the setup for an Item Master Template:

You can see that when a user is setting up new Items, for instance, the user only needs to select the type of Item they want to create.
First, you enter the new Item Number:

Then select ‘Apply Template’:

Then, from the list, select the type of Item you wish to create:

The system then populates the Item Card with the information that was set up in the Master Template:

Then, all that is left to do is to populate the fields with the data that is unique to the item, such as Description, Vendor Item Number, etc.
