How do I: Demo Microsoft Dynamics NAV

A couple of weeks ago, a new page was created on PartnerSource – the “Demo Microsoft Dynamics NAV” page. You can access it at http://aka.ms/demonav

The page contains (at the time) two scripts and two How Do I videos that help you establish a demo NAV 2015 environment on Azure, in Office 365. The whole process is highly automated and you can get up and running in a matter of minutes. When I say “up an running” I mean this: having a virtual machine running on Azure, with NAV 2015 accessible through Windows, Web, and Tablet client, with single sign-on to Office 365, and a nice demo SharePoint Online portal with several reports from NAV.

As I mentioned already, the GETLASTERROROBJECT function gives you an instance of System.Exception, actually of a class descending from it, which allows you to get more information about the context of the error that has just happened.

Any clue about cue?

Do you know cues? Those clickable colorless stacks of documents in NAV 2009, that turned into clickable blue stack tiles in NAV 2013 R2, and that worked on top of FlowFields of type Integer?

Well, in NAV 2015, this munch bunch has turned into clickable blue tiles with pictures and colorful indicators that are configurable per user, that work on top of any kind of numeric fields (normal or abnormal), or better yet, on top of any kind of numeric expression (you can bind them to RANDOM(1000) for all NAV cares).
