NAV 2015 – User Experience enhancements

Microsoft introduced four features called Mandatory Fields, Auto-fill No. field, Totals on Documents, and UI Elements Removal, all of which provide a simplified User Experience.

Mandatory Fields

Customer Page with five fields marked as mandatory. Red asterisk mark which fields are mandatory.

Auto-filled no. fields

On sales orders, which have multiple number series, the No. field is shown.

Picture8

On sales invoices, which only have one number series and Manual Nos. = False, the No. field is hidden.

The Invoice number is still shown both in the window caption (top) and in the page caption so the user can still see the No.

Total on Documents

Sales and purchase documents now have totals displayed at the bottom of the lines section.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Tablets

In NAV 2015 along with Role Tailored Client and Web Client Microsoft introduce new Tablet client.

Dynamics NAV for tablets allows users to get access to the data they need from the device they prefer. With a fabulous touch experience, it provides same view as Role Tailored Client so that users can get their work done from anywhere.

Customizing and role-tailoring our tablet experience becomes a simple task, using the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment and the Tablet client running in the browser.

You can download and install the Microsoft Dynamics NAV app from the Windows Store, App Store or Google Play.

The app connects to their Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 server, whether it is on-premise or in the cloud, and it authenticates using any of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV credentials types.

Picture2

All the content within the app consists of application pages coming from that same Microsoft Dynamics NAV server, and are rendered using our new Tablet client, designed exclusively for touch.

Which makes development for tablets, similar to development for any other Microsoft Dynamics NAV client!

Create new or customize existing application pages in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment on your workstation.

And when you’re done, test your role-tailored solution on your workstation using the tablet client running in the browser.

And that is how you can easily deliver beautiful role-tailored tablet experiences for your customers.

You build it once and it works across iOS, Android and Windows devices, and you don’t even need to go out and buy a bunch of tablets.
