“Finding Things” - Screen Organisation

Customise Your Role Centre

There are a few organisational things which you can do in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 (and earlier versions) to make your work easier and make your role centre more practical to how you work and these screen re-organisations are all achieved at user level.

These changes include the display of information on your own unique role centre, e.g. you can change how the different panes are displayed on your screen. By clicking on the lines alongside each pane until the double ended arrow is displayed and then dragging the line, it is possible to vary the size of each pane, either making them smaller or larger to suit.

“Finding Things” - Drill Down

Drill Down into Your Data

If you need to search for any information relating to Totals in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, such as Totals within your Chart of Accounts, the optimum way is to use the “drill down” function.

If you hover over a particular Total, it becomes underlined and it is then possible to click on it. For example, account 8130 – Repairs and Maintenance:

The Dynamics Connector for Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2016– Ep IV – A New Hope?

Firstly, my apologies to any Star Wars fans for the title of this article, being effectively the 4th version (version history), and given the trials that could be had with the previous version, the force really needed to be with you or you would find yourself turning to the dark side (paying for your connector).

For those of you who did not experience the previous connector, or are adept at blocking out nightmares, you may want to refresh yourself by reading one of my previous articles – ‘The Connector for Microsoft Dynamics’, paying particular attention to the second to last paragraph.

Office Updates – Morph Transition for Microsoft PowerPoint

Morph Transitions – Animate Your Slides

As a marketing manager with years of sales experience, I have spent countless hours creating presentations using Microsoft PowerPoint®. When trying to impress, clever slide transitions that move objects around and resize them takes hours of work trying to get the end result of one slide to match the start of the next slide. 

Morph is the new transition that actually recognises objects that are the same on two slides, even if they have been resized and moved around. On choosing Morph, PowerPoint automatically creates a smooth flow of these similar objects from one slide to the next in just one click! I have already saved myself hours of work, and now I can even throw together quick videos and ideas without having to waste hours of valuable time.
