Cost Control’s Rick Baxter moves us through how to easily customize a fast tab with quick entry so any user can define exactly which fields the cursor stops at for the fastest possible data entry using NAV2013. He also shows how administrators can also set this up for all users.

There are a whole lot of very technical NAV2013 videos out there made for programmers and NAV developers.  Videos geared toward the NAV end-user are a bit more difficult to find. I’ve added a new page to the blog so I can add videos I’ve found that I think are helpful. I’ll review each video I find personally and post some comments on each to make it easier for you to decide if you want to spend your time viewing it yourself.

video3Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Finance New Features DIMENSIONS; Clients First (40:13)  This is one of the only comprehensive videos I’ve seen to date  that covers the redesigned NAV2013 dimensions.  It’s geared toward finance super users as well as developers and discusses in detail why Microsoft made the design changes to dimensions in NAV2013 as well as how the new functionality works. Important new information include the use of SQL for transformation of dimensions from old to new databases instead of the upgrade toolkit, coding changes to the update analysis dimension as well as to the close income statement, and coverage of known issues and work arounds for dimension limitations. The video is presented by Alessandro Vannini, Microsoft Escalation Engineer. The overall pace is pretty slow, but hang in there, the information is worth it! The demo picks up at 22:10 and shows some nice examples of using Ctrl-Alt-F1 to view the dimension sets on the page while still maintaining the end-user view of individual dimensions.

Learning about NAV2013: Videos on the chart generator

learnAs a NAV super user at my company, I’m constantly learning new things about NAV and bringing that information back to my coworkers.  Even after using NAV for quite a few years, I sure don’t know everything, and there is always some new thing to discover by attending NAVUG webinars, browsing blogs on the web, or just watching over someone’s shoulder as they do a task.

I’m focusing on learning about NAV2013 this year so I can be prepared for the next step in the NAV upgrade progression for my company.  One of the things I’m really curious about is how to generate those nifty looking charts in NAV2013.

I found some great videos out there on YouTube done by Rick Baxter of Cost Control Software.  Take a look!
