Notifications in UI -NAV 2017

This is really interesting feature introduced in NAV 2017 as Notifications in UI.

NAV 2017 comes up smarter way to send notifications to the UI in Web Client .This will provide notifications to the user about what is happening in transactions.

This will helpful during

1) Shortage on Inventory

2) Customer Balance is negative

3) Customer credit limit exceeded

and many more…….

In the development environment, you create notifications in C/AL by using the newNotification and NotificationScope data types and the following functions.
MESSAGE specifies the content of the notification that appears in the UI

  1. SCOPE specifies the scope in which the notification appears, which can be LocalScope or GlobalScope.
  2. SEND sends the notification to be displayed by the client.
  3. ADDACTION adds an action on the notification.
  4. SETDATA and GETDATA set and retrieve a data property value for the notification, which is typically needed when actions are invoked.

All the notifications will fire after the validations errors.

Cheers!!!!!!!

Account Categories in the Chart of Accounts- NAV 2017

This is one of the new improvement in Financial management -Chart of Account

Now one can define categories and subcategories in chart of account itself . This feature is useful for reporting purpose as well as categorization of ledgers.

Straight from MS :

We have added account categories and sub categories so you can group general ledger accounts to fit your need for financial reporting. For each G/L account, you can specify the account category so that ledger entries posted to this account are categorized as assets or liabilities, for example., or an income or an expense, and so on.
For each account category, you can choose between different sub-categories. You can also create new sub-categories to fit your need. For example, for the G/L account category Income, you can define as many sub-categories as you need so that you can differentiate between income from services and income from product sales.

I loved this feature as in initial version we have to add these as custom field and prepare reporting based on the same ( Specially in Indian version)

 

Cheers…
