Report Selections -NAV 2017

To communicate the contents of business documents quickly to your  customers, you can use the Report Layout feature to define document-specific content that gets inserted in email bodies automatically. Regarding sending email from pages I wrote earlier in my blog Send Document. Now in NAV 2017 this feature is extended more to give more feasibility to users.

You can email practically all document types as attachments to email messages directly from the window that shows the document. In addition to the attachment, you can set up document-specific email bodies with core information from the document preceded by standard text that greets the mail recipient and introduces the document in question.

In report selections window some more parameters added to add the report in body or as attachment when email send to customers or business partners.

*Use for email body :- Tick if report output need to insert in email body

*Use for email attachment :- Tick if report output to be saved in PDF and attached to email

*Email Body Layout Description:- Select the available layout from custom layout i.e You can select word layout also . If this field leaves blank means it will take                                                                 standard layout from report.

 

Once user select all this then after sending email to customer it looks like something what we except

 

If we not select email body layout in report selections then you will get output like this

You can edit this message in outlook before sending to customer/business partners.

From all supported documents, you initiate emailing by choosing the Send action, on posted documents, or the Post and Send action, on non-posted documents.

Stay tuned for more

On October 11 Microsoft unveiled a First Look at Dynamics 365, the next generation of intelligent, purpose-built business applications that work seamlessly together to help manage specific business functions across Sales, Customer Service, Operations, Financials, and beyond. PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, and the Common Data Service are built-in to make Dynamics 365 easily adaptable to the specific needs of any organization.

On October 28 Microsoft unveiled Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017

Now when exploring NAV 2017 and Dynamics 365 found some differences as follows

NAV 2017 Dynamics 365
NAV 2017 providing functionality like Service,Jobs,Manufacturing etc Dynamics 365 not providing modules with required functionalities
NAV 2017 providing required financial management in every company Dynamics 365 is missing with some key functionalities like inter company transactions.
NAV 2017 provides wide range of functionality in Purchase & Inventory Management Dynamics 365 is missing with functionality like Item tracking,Purchase quote,Item charge
In NAV 2017 we can use links to attach external documents,use comments to add additional details Dynamics 365 is lacking these functionalities at the moment
NAV 2017 support development through extensions as well as you can modify existing functions and code units Dynamics 365 develops through extensions.

The above difference are based on the broad view of both applications and Dynamics 365 is in preliminary stage at the moment and in future it will come with lot more functionalities which will support in day to day activities to user.

Report Settings- NAV 2017

There is one new parameter introduced in NAV 2017 reports that is ‘Saved Settings’

Depending on the report that is run, request page that lets you to set certain options and filters for changing the data that is included in the generated report. A report can include one or more saved settings that you can apply to the report from the request page. Saved settings are basically predefined options and filters. Using saved settings is a fast and reliable way to consistently generate reports that contain the correct data.

You can see the saved settings that are available to you for a report in Saved Settings section of the report request page. There is always at least one saved settings entry, which is called Last used options and filters. These settings are the option and filter values that were used the last time you ran the report.

How to Apply Saved Settings to Report

1) Open report and report request page appears

2) In the Saved Settings section of the page, set the Name field to the saved settings that you want to use

 

How to Create Saved Settings for Users

If you have the proper permissions, you can view, create, and modify the saved settings for all reports for all users in company. You can assign saved settings for a report to individual users or all users in the company.

You manage saved settings from page 1506 Reports Settings.

From this page you can create new settings for all users or any individual users also.

Note: The saved settings feature on reports is only relevant when the SaveValues property of the request page is set to Yes. The SaveValues property is set in the development environment.
