ArcherPoint Dynamics Developer Digest - vol 127
The NAV community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff—is made up of developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating, with the common goal of sharing helpful information with one another to help customers be more successful.
As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them on blogs, forums, social media…so everyone can benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this community—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share this great information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from NAV experts and devotees around the world. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.
Microsoft Offering Windows 10 Upgrades for Free Again
That is, if you are a customer with a Windows subscription via the CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) program. If you are, and are a tenant admin, you can login to the Office 365 Admin Center with your Azure Active Directory admin credentials and you should see options to begin the process of upgrading your Windows 7 and 8 PCs and devices. Take advantage while you can, we don’t know how long this offer will last.

Microsoft Announces Changes to CfMD Requirements
As of January 2017, Microsoft’s CfMD (Certified for Microsoft Dynamics) program requirements have changed. Key changes include:
- Removal of the “make escrow available to customers” requirement
- Removal of “demonstrate support capability” requirement
- Removal of “establish a profile on the Microsoft Pinpoint” site
The first two could be cause for concern for end users, as they will need to do a little more due diligence when purchasing ISV solutions.
Microsoft Flow: New Features and Templates
The MSDynamicsWorld blog article, New features for Microsoft Flow: New connectors and a profusion of templates, cites the Microsoft UK developer blog when summarizing the latest update to Microsoft Flow. Very interesting article on what’s new including 13 more services and 84 connectors to popular apps and services. Hint, search “Email” and then “Approval” just to get a taste of the templates available for Flow. (Note: login on MSDynamicsWorld required to read the full article)
