  • How-to: Create a Workflow Template

    One of the major additions to NAV 2016 is Workflow . Both technical and functional more than interesting to take a deep-dive in as me and my friend Arend-Jan Kauffmann did to prepare a What's New in 2016 workshop. It makes use of the new platform feature Eventing (technical) and has been applied to replace the Document Approval feature (functional). If you haven't been on this subject yet, come and visit or book our workshops or inform yourself using the various resources that have been popping…

  • Hey Mr. Microsoft, My Documentation Trigger is not an Xmas Tree

    I believe many of us were positively surprised by the new C/AL Editor in NAV 2016. At the various conferences last fall it got the applause it deserved, even though it has some hiccups. Like not being able to use the Symbol Menu to paste functions, variables, etc. One of the minor new cute things is the coloring of Date, Time and numerical constants: //Numerical 1234 9 , 876 //Date 311215D //Time 235959T //DateTime 0DT I must admit the fuchsia coloring of numericals…
