ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest - vol 117
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 media...so 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.
Lanham Scanning Not Incrementing
Jimmie Sanchez shares that he ran into an issue in Pack Line Scanning where scanning is not incrementing. For example, if you scan or type an item in, and then scan/type the same item in again, it will not register. The issue occurs with commands as well. Lanham said it was an issue that showed up for NAV 2016. There is a hotfix from Lanham Associates available. Contact your Lanham partner for the hotfix.

Internet of Things
ArcherPoint has talked about the Internet of Things (IoT) and the impact on manufacturing, however, what we didn’t cover was the potential for hacking, and how vulnerable our machines are to hacking. In a recent experiment by a reporter at The Atlantic, it was proven how quickly hackers can take down a whole system. In the experiment he built a virtual Internet-connected toaster, put it online and just waited for it to be hacked. It took 41 minutes. You can read about the whole IoT hacking experiment here.
