We have created a new feature in Microsoft Dynamics NAV improves the way that comments are added. The comments tool in NAV allows people to write notes against a record, but each comment field is limited to 80 characters, which can be frustrating when trying to add a large section of notes, either by typing or using copy and paste. This means that people often revert to using the notes fact box, however this does not allow for different types; the Comments functionality includes separate Internal Messages, Resolution Messages, Fault Messages and General Messages. Reporting against Notes is also less easy to report against than comments.
The Comments Add-in works by providing an unlimited text field that allows you to copy and paste or manually type the notes that you require. On submitting the notes the Add-in automatically populates the lines split into the 80 character segments. The add in logs the date, time and username onto the message, allowing users to clearly see who wrote the message and at what time.
