Dynamics NAVImprovements in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 Webclient


Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 Web client had limitations such as the reports couldn’t be previewed. The reports could be saved as .pdf file but we couldn’t preview the reports  as we could do in the Windows Client. With the new release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018, there is availability of Print Preview for non-Internet Explorer browsers.


Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018.(with Web Client set up)


1. Previewing a report in the Dynamics NAV Web client was only possible in Internet Explorer, but is now possible on all supported browsers with the release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018.

2. Now, we can preview a report directly in the client by choosing the Preview button on report request pages. This displays the report by using the new PDF Viewer control, which enables us to use our  keyboard and mouse to navigate the report and download it to our computer.

3.The report preview in the Web client has been refurbished with a new design and additional features. It works with all supported browsers. We preview a report by choosing Preview on the report options page. A toolbar provides several features for working with the report, such as zooming in and out, downloading to file, and more.

Two new features include selecting text and panning:
• Select text This feature lets you select one or more words, paragraphs, or rows in the report, and then copy and paste it somewhere else, like a page in Financials or a Microsoft Word document.
• Pan the document This feature lets you move the visible area of the report in any direction, so you can view other areas. This is helpful when you have zoomed in to see details.
