Is it possible to use NAV to track non-financial data?  (i.e. Headcount).  We have found some documentation on simulation entries but not sure if that's the right track.

Now that User Group Summit 2018 has come and gone, this blog may be a little late, but still may be useful the next time you are traveling (User Group Focus?).  I had a long trip from Philadelphia to Phoenix and thought I could pass some time reading the current issue of BCUG | NAVUG magazine.  Unfortunately, I had not yet received it in the mail, so I figured out how to download it to my iPad. Here are some simple steps to download BCUG/NAVUG Magazine to your iPad or iPhone.  If you know of a better or easier way, please post a reply.   Step 1:  Go to NAVUG.com and scroll to the bottom of the home page for the site map (or simply go to:  https://www.navug.com/resources/magazine ...

Yes, ….. and no. Heard about Dynamics 365 Business Central? If not, or you don’t know much yet, you’re not alone – about 40% our community hasn’t (according to our member survey last month). Business Central is the new name for Dynamics NAV.  Microsoft released the cloud version, hosted on Azure, in April.  The on-premise version (aka NAV 2019) will be released this fall. So what’s this mean to you and your organization? If you’re like most, your key concerns about what’s happening with Dynamics NAV are straight forward: Will we be able to keep using Dynamics NAV / Business Central for our operations? How much is it going to cost us? You have a ...

In preparing to write an article on the value of the Dynamics Credentialed Professional Certifications and what it would take to help you recognize the value of this certification, I found the “5 Reasons Certifications Aren’t Worth It” by David Bolton[1]. David is correct in his assessment of why many certifications provide no value but his list also makes it easy for me to explain why Dynamics Professional Credentials are the exception. “Software Technology Moves Too Fast” – Knowledge that’s relevant today quickly becomes outdated. If I use the NAV Core Application Setup exam as an example, it is designed to test experience and knowledge of setups ...
