Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Navision) 2013 Starter Pack Functionality

Financial Management

Accounts Schedules
Powerful financial reporting tool which can help accountants and financial analysts to extract the most essential business data from the chart of accounts, budgets, cash flow accounts and cost types into financial reports, which can be used to efficiently monitor the health of the business and provide valuable input for the business decision makers. You get to choose the accounts you want to monitor and report on, change the order of the accounts, and combine figures in various ways, set up which columns to print, change the description of the accounts and supply them with additional notes.

In addition, you can make simple calculations on the data you selected on the accounts schedules worksheet, compare current figures with historical ones and with your budgets. On top of that you can build more sophisticated reports which present data split by dimensions, responsibility centers and date periods, giving you in-depth view on the state of your business from a variety of different angles.

Once the accounts schedule is prepared – you can observe data directly inside the product using the Acc. Schedules Overview page, you can choose to export it into Excel or even have it displayed as a multidimensional graphical chart on your Role Center. With this feature you have full control and overview of your business accounting, margins and growth.

Allocations
Allocate general ledger entries to combinations of accounts, departments, and projects using allocation keys based on amount, percentage, or quantity.

Basic General Ledger
This granule includes all the basic functionality necessary for setting up a company and posting to the general ledger, chart of accounts, general journals, VAT facilities, recurring journals, and source codes. Also includes:

  • Facilities for internal and external reporting.
  • RapidStart Services for Microsoft Dynamics NAV
  • Approval of sales and purchase documents.
  • Posting and reporting in your company’s base currency.
  • Posting and reporting in an additional currency with the addition of the Multiple Currencies granule.
  • Capability to export data from any form to Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel® using style sheets.
  • Capability to link to external documents.
  • Two languages—U.S. English and one other.
  • Set up sales and purchase documents archiving.
  • Background posting

Basic XBRL
Export documents from Microsoft Dynamics NAV in XBRL (Extensible Business Reporting Language) format and import XBRL taxonomies into Microsoft Dynamics NAV from the Internet, email, or other systems. XBRL is an XML-based specification that uses accepted financial reporting standards based on standardized, underlying data tags. The granule includes:

  • Capability to map your general ledger to XBRL taxonomies so that the same XBRL document instance can be used for various purposes, independent of the format required by the receiver of the document.
  • Support for the XBRL 2.1 Specification released by the XBRL Consortium.

Budgets
Work with budgets in general ledger accounts. After you have created a budget, you can print a balance that shows variances to the budget by percentage. Work with multiple budgets at one time. For example, work with a 100 percent budget, a 110 percent budget, and so on. Budgets are generally entered per period for the relevant general ledger accounts.

Change Log
Log user changes made to Microsoft Dynamics NAV master data. You can log all direct modifications a user makes to the data in the database, except for changes to “working documents” such as journals, sales orders, and purchase orders. The change log functionality makes it possible to get a chronological list of all changes to any field in any table (except those “working documents” just mentioned) and to identify by user ID who made the changes.

Consolidation
Consolidate companies in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The companies can come from one or from several different Microsoft Dynamics NAV databases or other files, and you can import and export financial information in this granule. If data used is retrieved from several Microsoft Dynamics NAV solutions, use this granule only in the parent company.

Cash Flow Forecast
Cash Flow Forecast provides a prediction of how a company’s liquidity – cash and other treasure positions – will evolve over time. It consists of two things – cash receipts and cash disbursements – the money you expect to receive and the cash you expect to pay out – plus the liquid funds you have available. These elements together show you a direct cash flow forecast

Fixed Assets

Basic Fixed Assets
Keep track of fixed assets such as buildings, machinery, and equipment. You can also post various fixed-asset transactions: acquisitions, depreciation, write-downs, appreciation, and disposal. For each fixed asset, you set up depreciation books in which the methods and other conditions used for calculating depreciation are defined. You can set up an unlimited number of depreciation books to satisfy legal requirements, and for tax and internal accounting purposes. This granule is well suited for international companies that need to use many depreciation methods.

Fixed Assets Allocations
Allocate different percentages of fixed asset transactions, such as acquisition cost and depreciation, to different departments or projects by using allocation keys. Useful for when several departments share a fixed asset.

Insurance
Keep track of insurance coverage and annual insurance premiums for your fixed assets and easily determine whether your assets are under-insured or over-insured. You can attach each asset to one or more insurance policies and also index insurance amounts.

Maintenance
Record maintenance and service expenses for each fixed asset. Get the detailed information you need to analyze and make decisions about the renewal and disposal of fixed assets.

Reclassification
Reclassify a fixed asset or part of a fixed asset—for example, from one department to another. You can split one fixed asset into several fixed assets, or combine several fixed assets into one fixed asset. When you need to dispose of one part of a fixed asset, you can split it into two assets and then dispose of the appropriate one.

Supply Chain Management

Alternative Ship -Tos
Set up multiple ship-to addresses to accommodate customers that in addition to a main business address have more than one site to which order can be shipped. These additional locations can then be selected by the order processor when creating a sales order or invoice.

Basic Receivables
Set up and maintain the customer table. Post sales transactions in journals and manage receivables; register customers and manage receivables using general journals. Together with Multiple Currencies, this granule can post sales transactions and manage receivables in multiple currencies for each customer. Basic Receivables is integrated with Basic General Ledger and Inventory and is required for the configuration of all other Sales and Receivables granules. Sales Invoicing is also frequently used with this granule. Always use this granule when your solution requires a customer table.

Sales Invoicing
Set up, post, and print customer invoices and sales credit memos. This granule is fully integrated with General Ledger and Inventory.

Sales Invoice Discounts
Calculate invoice discounts automatically. Set up any number of invoice discount terms, including a certain minimum amount, discount percentage, and/or a service charge. The discount is calculated on the individual item lines and becomes part of the net sum of the invoice. Calculations can be done in both local and foreign currencies.

Sales Line Discounting
Manage flexible item price discount structures that differentiate between special agreements with individual customers and customer groups, and are conditioned by such parameters as minimum quantity, unit of measure, currency, item variant and time period. The best, as based on the highest discount, unit price is calculated for the sales line when the order details meet the conditions specified in the sales line discounts table.

Sales Line Pricing
Manage flexible item price structures that differentiate between special agreements with individual customers and customer groups, and are conditioned by such parameters as minimum quantity, unit of measure, currency, item variant and time period. The best, that is, the lowest, unit price is brought to the sales line when the order details meet the conditions specified in the sales prices table. Make updates and changes to the price agreements as recorded in the sales prices table by using sales price worksheet.

Sales Order Management
Manage sales quotes, blanket sales orders, and sales order processes. Setting up an invoice directly differs from setting up a sales order in which the quantity available is adjusted as soon as an amount is entered on a sales order line. Quantity available is not affected by an invoice until the invoice is posted. Use the Sales Order Management granule to:

  • Manage partial shipments.
  • Ship and invoice separately.
  • Create prepayment invoices for the sales order.
  • Use quotes and blanket orders in the sales phase. (Quotes and blanket orders do not affect inventory figures.)

Sales Return Order Management
This granule enables you to create a sales return order, so you can compensate a customer for wrong or damaged items. Items can be received against the sales return order. Create a partial return receipt or combine return receipts on one credit memo. Link sales return orders with replacement sales orders.

Shipping Agents
Set up multiple shipping agents (for example, UPS, DHL, external carriers, or your own carrier) and relate their services (express, overnight, standard) with shipping time. Associate default shipping agents and their services with individual customers or specify those details on sales orders and transfer orders to improve accuracy of order promising.

Sales Tax
Calculate Sales Tax and set up individual tax areas for each customer and vendor. Also enables you to calculate use tax on the tax. Sales tax can also be calculated from the general journal lines. Please check your local pricelist for availability

Back to the top of the page.

Purchase and Payables

Alternative Order Addresses
Set up multiple addresses to manage orders from vendors that in addition to a main business address have more than one site from which they ship orders. These additional locations can then be selected by the purchasing agent when creating a purchase order or invoice.

Basic Payables
Set up and maintain a vendor table, post purchase transactions in journals, and manage payables. Includes the vendor table and enables you to generate vendor ledger entries using general journals. Use this together with the Multiple Currencies granule to post purchase transactions and manage payables in multiple currencies for each vendor. This granule is always used if your solution requires a vendor table. It is integrated with General Ledger and Inventory and required for the configuration of all other Purchase and Payables granules. Purchase Invoicing is also frequently used with this granule.

Drop Shipments
Handle order shipments directly from the vendor to the customer without having to physically stock items in your inventory while still keeping track of order costs and profit. The drop shipment process is facilitated through automatic linking of sales and purchase orders that control the built-in sequence of posting tasks.

Purchase Invoicing
Set up, post, and print purchase invoices and purchase credit memos. This granule is integrated with General Ledger and Inventory.

Purchase Line Discounting
Manage multiple item purchase price discounts that you have negotiated with individual vendors as based on such parameters as minimum quantity, unit of measure, currency, item variant and time period. The best, as based on the highest discount, unit cost is calculated for the purchase line when the order details meet the conditions specified in the purchase line discounts table.

Purchase Invoice Discounts
Calculate invoice discounts automatically. The discount can differ from vendor to vendor with different minimum amounts (also in different currencies) and different rates, depending on the size of the invoice. The discount is calculated on the individual item lines and becomes part of the net sum of the invoice.

Purchase Line Pricing
Manage multiple item purchase prices that you have negotiated with individual vendors as based on such parameters as minimum quantity, unit of measure, currency, item variant and time period. The best, that is, the lowest, unit cost is brought to the purchase line when the order details meet the conditions specified in the purchase prices table.

Purchase Order Management
Manage purchase quotes, blanket orders, and purchase order processes. Creating a purchase order differs from creating a purchase invoice directly. The quantity available is adjusted as soon as an amount is entered on a purchase order line, but it is not affected by a purchase invoice until the invoice is posted. Use this granule to:

  • Manage partial receipts.
  • Receive and invoice separately and create prepayment invoices for the purchase order.
  • Use quotes and blanket orders in the purchase phase. (Quotes and blanket orders do not affect inventory figures.)

Purchase Return Order Management
Create a purchase return order in order to compensate your own company for wrong or damaged items. Items can then be picked from the purchase return order. You can set up partial return shipments or combine return shipments in one credit memo and link purchase return orders with replacement purchase orders.

Requisition Management
Automate the supply planning process by using the Requisition Worksheet. Generate optimal suggestions for replenishing inventory through purchases and transfers based on the item’s current and future demand and availability as well as a variety of planning parameters, such as minimum and maximum quantities and reorder quantities. Display a graphical overview of the planning impact and allow the user to change the plan using drag and drop, prior to executing on the plan. Alternatively, use the Order Planning – a simplified supply planning tool that enables you to plan supply for all types of demand in an order-by-order fashion, with no considerations for optimization.

Back to the top of the page.

Inventory

Analysis Reports
Provide company decision-makers, especially those with overall responsibility for sales, purchases, and product portfolio management, with an efficient and flexible way to get meaningful information out of the system to inform day-to-day decisions. Built on item entries, this granule provides a customizable, analytic view that enables people to add and combine analysis objects—customers, items, and vendors— according to their needs. You can:

  • Present figures in both amounts and quantities and compare by periods as well as against budget. When the figures are put in a formula, they can become an indicator of the company’s performance.
  • Drill down to locate the cause of problems.
  • View sales dynamics; analyze inventory turnover; evaluate customers’ buying behavior; spot trends; reconsider product offerings, prices, and vendors; and make informed business decisions.

Alternative Vendors
Manage purchase of the same item from several different vendors. Set up alternative vendors for an item, specify typical lead times used by a specific vendor to deliver that item, and associate price and discount agreements for that item with each vendor.

Basic Inventory
Set up items that you carry in your stock and specify their unit of measures, costing method, inventory posting group, unit cost and price and other properties. Post item transactions, such as sales, purchase, negative and positive adjustments from item journals. Quantity and cost records of the posted transactions are stored in the inventory ledger that is the basis for inventory valuation and other costing calculations. Integrated with General Ledger and with the posting processes in Sales and Receivables and Purchase and Payables, this granule is required for the configuration of all other Inventory granules.

Bin
Organize your warehouse by assigning items to bins, the smallest unit in the warehouse logical structure. Bin assignment is done as the item journals or directly on the document lines (does not apply to order lines).

Item Budgets
Make sales and purchase budgets on the customer, vendor, and item levels, and in both amounts and quantities. Prepare and record a sales budget that can serve as input to decision makers in other operational areas, such as purchasing and logistics. Decision-makers gain information about future expected demand they can use for business discussions with the customers. After budgets are made, track the actual sales performance by means of calculating the variance. The ability to move budgeted figures between the system and Excel provides additional flexibility to the budgeting process.

Item Charges
Manage item charges. Include the value of additional cost components such as freight or insurance into the unit cost or unit price of an item.

Item Cross References
Quickly and precisely identify the items a customer is ordering on the basis of item numbers other than your own. Cross-reference information from customers, vendors, and manufacturers, as well as generic numbers, universal product codes (UPCs), and European article numbers (EANs) that can be stored and easily accessed.

Item Substitutions
Link items with the same or similar characteristics so that if a customer orders an item that is unavailable, you can offer substitute items and avoid losing the sale. Or, provide an extra service to your customer by offering lower-cost alternatives.

Item Tracking
Manage and track serial and lot numbers. Assign serial or lot numbers manually or automatically, and receive and ship multiple quantities with serial/lot numbers from a single order line entry.

Assembly Management
Specify a list of sellable items, raw materials, subassemblies and/or resources as Assembly Bill of Materials that comprises a finished item or a kit. Use assembly orders to replenish assembly items to stock or capture the customer’s special requirements to the kit’s bill of materials directly from the sales quote, blanket and order line in the assembly-to-order processes.

Location Transfers
Track inventory as it is moved from one location to another and account for the value of inventory in transit and at various locations.

Multiple Locations
Manage inventory in multiple locations that may represent a production plant, distribution centers, warehouses, show rooms, retail outlets and service cars

Nonstock Items
Offer items to customers that are not part of your regular inventory but that you can order from the vendor or manufacturer on a one-off basis. Such items are registered as nonstock items but otherwise are treated like any other item.

Pick
Enable warehouse workers to create a pick from the released order. Pick is managed from a separate user interface when shipping items in an order-by-order environment.

Stock-Keeping Units
Manage stock-keeping units (SKUs). Identical items with the same item number can be stored in different locations and managed individually at each location. Add cost prices, replenishment, manufacturing information, and so on, based on the location.

Project Management

Basic Resources
Keep track of resources and prices. Register and sell resources, combine related resources into one resource group, or track individual resources. Divide resources into labor and equipment and allocate resources to a specific job in a time schedule.

Contact Management
Maintain an overview of your contacts, and personalize your approach to them. Record your contact information for all business relationships. This granule is tightly integrated with the Sales and Receivables application area. You can also: • Specify the individual people related to each contact.

  • Get an automatic alert if you enter contact information that already exists with the duplicate check function.
  • Get a precise view of prospects and customers by categorizing your contacts based on profiling questions.
  • Issue quotes to prospects or create sales documents for specific contacts if you have Sales Order Management

Outlook Client Integration
Synchronize your to-do items and your contacts in Microsoft Dynamics NAV with meetings, tasks, and contacts in Outlook. Create, update, cancel, and delete in one program and, at a specific time, synchronize from within Outlook. You can also customize synchronization by adding fields or adding new entities to be synchronized.

Task Management
Organize the tasks related to your sales and marketing activities. Create to-do lists for yourself and assign tasks to other users or teams of users. Automatically create recurring to-do items and activities consisting of several to-do items.

Back to the top of the page.

Human Resource Management

Basic Human Resources
Efficiently manage your company’s human resources. Group and track relevant employee information and organize employee data according to different types of information, such as experience, skills, education, training, and union membership. Store personal information, track job openings in your organization, and extract a list of candidates for these positions. Keep track of benefits and company items such as keys, credit cards, computers, and cars. Easily record all types of absences in units of measure that you define, and attach alternative addresses and relatives’ names to employees.

Back to the top of the page.

Languages

Multiple Document Languages
Set up alternative descriptions of your inventory items and print reports in multiple languages (for example, you can make invoices in the receiver’s language). Descriptions can be linked to individual customers, which is especially useful for sales to foreign countries. It can, however, be useful to customize the item descriptions even for domestic customers. The alternative item descriptions are automatically selected. To use the multiple language features, the texts for the alternative languages must be inserted in the relevant application objects.

Multiple Languages (Each)
Switch languages on the client in real time, provided that the language is available in the program. The language module can be used to run Multilanguage functionality. IMPORTANT: Users can use this language module only if the personal license file contains the language granule for the specific language. Each language granule covers the functionality for only one specific language. For example, the Danish language module contains all Danish strings for Danish functionality. It does not contain Danish strings for French or other language functionality

Configuration and Development

Application Builder (A la carte)
Change the business rules and special calculations that work behind the scenes. Business rules and special calculations are defined in C/AL (the C/SIDE application language). Although this granule includes access to C/AL, it does not permit access to existing C/AL code that updates write-protected tables (for example, postings). With Application Builder, you can create entirely new areas of functionality for your application, enabling you to tailor Microsoft Dynamics NAV to fit your entire organization. It also enables you to create 100 codeunit objects (numbered from 50,000 to 50,099). You can also take advantage of the functionality included for developers in the Navigation Pane Designer (for example, creating new menu items).

Page Designer
Change existing pages (windows displayed on the screen for data entry and inquiry), and it enables you to create 100 page objects (included and numbered from 50,000 to 50,099). The Page Designer granule also enables you to use the Navigation Pane Designer. This means, for example, that you can create new menu items. This granule does not include access to C/AL from pages.

Report Designer
Change existing reports and create 100 new report objects (numbered from 50,000 to 50,099). This granule provides access to C/AL (the C/SIDE application language) from reports used for defining special calculations and business rules. Create new reports from scratch or copy an existing report to use as a starting point. Every report in Microsoft Dynamics NAV is created using this tool and can therefore be easily customized. You will need the Microsoft Visual Studio Report Designer 2010 to design the layout of a report in development environment. Microsoft Visual Report Designer comes with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Professional, Premium, or Ultimate. This granule enables you to take advantage of the functionality included for developers in the Navigation Pane Designer (for example, creating new menu items).

Solution Developer (A la carte)
Change the business rules and special calculations that work behind the scenes. Business rules and special calculations are defined in C/AL (the C/SIDE application language). This granule provides access to code that updates write-protected tables to the Merge and Upgrade Tools. You can also:

  • Change or create any object type.
  • Use the menu options Translate/Export and Translate/Import in the Object Designer. (These options are not available with the Application Builder granule.)

Table Designer
Change existing table definitions and create 10 new tables (numbered from 50,000 to 50,009). You can change properties on fields, such as the field name, decimal places, and maximum value, add new fields to existing tables, and create new tables to store data specific to your business. Create keys for sorting information and change or create new FlowFields and FlowFilters for “slicing and dicing” information in new ways. This granule does not include access to C/AL from tables.

XMLports
Create new or change existing XMLport objects. XMLport Designer provides access to C/AL (the C/SIDE application language) from XMLports used for defining special calculations and business rules. Every XMLport object in Microsoft Dynamics NAV is created using this tool and can therefore be customized easily. This granule enables you to create 100 new XMLport objects (numbered from 50,000 to 50,099) and to take advantage of the functionality included for developers in the Navigation Pane Designer (for example, creating new menu items).

Query Designer
The Query designer provides the ability to modify existing queries in the application, as well as create up to 100 new queries. The Query designer is the main tool for creating objects of type Query. Query objects retrieve subsets of data spread across the database and are data pumps for various places within the application such as charts and business logic.

Time Sheet
Time Sheet is a simple and flexible solution for time registration with manager approval. Time sheet provides integration to Service, Jobs and Resource.

Advanced Dimensions
Advanced Dimensions provides unlimited dimensions for use in transactions in all ledgers. You can name all the dimensions as most appropriate for your business. In addition to an unlimited number of dimensions, this granule includes advanced dimensions functionality that enables you to set up rules for how to combine dimensions and dimension values. This helps you control the use of dimensions and increases the reliability of output based on dimensions. You can also:

  • Set up rules for prioritization of default values and define dimension rules to fit your specific business.
  • Set up and use analysis views to analyze general ledger transactions per dimension and combine dimensions as you want.
  • Include budget information in analysis views, which is an advanced way of analyzing data using dimensions.
  • Combine analysis of dimensions with the use of account schedules.

Basic Dimensions
Add two additional dimensions to the general ledger and to any of the other ledgers in Microsoft Dynamics NAV for greater flexibility when working with analytical tools. You can give the two dimensions the names most appropriate for your business and assign dimension codes to each transaction that involves a general ledger account, customer, vendor, fixed asset, resource, job, or inventory item. In addition, you can define default dimension values and rules for the default values for all account types (general ledger, customer, vendor, item, and so on) to help you easily add dimensions to all transactions. This granule can be used in companies that, for example, have several projects, regions, or profit centers. You can also use it to:

  • Closely analyze projects in companies that work with projects across departments and functions.
  • Generate a statement of operations for a company car account, where the individual automobiles are set up as projects.
  • Establish a single account for all company cars, even though a detailed statement per car is called for.
  • Print a balance for a given department or project or for combinations of the two.

Extended Text
Set up an unlimited number of lines to describe inventory items, resources, and general ledger accounts. You can set up extended text so that an additional description is copied automatically onto sales or purchase documents when lines are entered. The description can also be made date-sensitive to allow for special messages for a specific period—for example, to communicate certain promotional offerings or certain warranty conditions. You can also specify extended text for various languages.

Intrastat
Automatically retrieve the necessary data to report Intrastat information to statistics authorities. Local customs authorities can inform you whether your company is obligated to file such a report.

Job Queue
Automate service or schedule tasks. For example, you can automatically generate service contract renewals or service contract invoices. You can set up the program to automatically check whether there are any batches to be processed on a specific date.

Multiple Currencies
Manage multiple currencies throughout the system, including payables and receivables, general ledger reports, resource and inventory items, and bank accounts (when integrated with the Cash Management granules). With Multiple Currencies, you can:

  • Enter exchange rates and convert currency in full compliance with euro legislation (including “triangulation”) in the European Monetary Union (EMU) countries. Triangulation is the required method of currency conversion during the transitional period of the euro.
  • Perform currency conversion according to exchange rates that are stored and maintained in the exchange rate table.
  • Set up a currency in the exchange rate table and specify the format so that amounts will always be shown in the correct format on all forms and reports throughout the system.
  • Enter exchange rates for a date or for a period in the exchange rate table.
  • Calculate the exchange rate associated with the date on the transaction for each conversion of a currency amount to a local amount.
  • Save historical exchange rates in the exchange rate table to keep track of fluctuations over a period of time.
  • Transact business in any number of currencies for any customer and vendor. For example, companies can issue an invoice in one currency and accept payment for that invoice in a different currency.
  • Manage currency conversion dynamically and help ensure efficient processing of exchange rate updates.
  • Store details of transactions involving receivables and payables in local and foreign currencies so that aging and reports for receivables and payables can be printed in local or foreign currency.
  • Use the Exchange Rate Adjustment option to adjust receivables and payables and post unrealized gains/losses to the general ledger.

At payment, gains/losses are realized, and corresponding postings are made in the general ledger. If you use an additional reporting currency in the general ledger, the Exchange Rate Adjustment option also adjusts the general ledger according to your setup for each general ledger account.

Per Database License (SQL Server)
Per Database License is required when you want to run several databases on the same instance of SQL Server. Each database uses its own license file. In order to have more than one database using different license files, those license files must contain this granule. Without it, all databases on the server that do not use their own license files use one common license file.

Reason Codes
Define a set of reason codes that can be assigned to individual transactions throughout the system. This provides additional user-defined audit trails that complement the information already provided by system assigned audit trails and posting descriptions. Define reason codes on journals as well as on sales and purchase headers. For example, use reason codes to mark all ledger entries made in connection with the closing of the fiscal year.

Subsidiary (Unlimited)
For Perpetual licenses the Software License Terms (SLT) permit qualified affiliates of the licensing company to grant systems access to employees of those affiliates, making subsidiary licensing redundant. Please refer to the SLT for full details.

Permissions
Assign and limit user permissions with this advanced and detailed system. Control access to each table, page report, codeunit, XMLport, and menu unit of Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Salespeople/Purchasers
Keep track of purchases and sales per person by assigning purchasers to vendors and salespeople to customers. Purchasers and salespersons are tracked in the Vendor Ledger, Customer Ledger, Item Ledger, Job Ledger, and Resource Ledger. Statistics are generated about individual salespeople and purchasers based on this information, which can be used for calculating commissions.

Unlimited Companies
Provide competitive pricing if your business needs more than one company.

User IDs and Passwords
Create user IDs and passwords to limit access to the information in Microsoft Dynamics NAV to selected individuals. Control access to the solution and give all designated users full permissions. These security features are a function of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database. This granule can be used alone or in combination with the Permissions granule.
