ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest - vol 161
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.

The Dynamics NAV team blog shares added support for Windows 10 updates and hinted at support for “interesting features and devices,” stay tuned.
Additionally, as of October 2017, the Dynamics NAV app will no longer support the Windows Phone 8.1 You’ll need to upgrade to Windows 10, although they are offering a grace period.
Lastly, Dynamics NAV will support iOS 11 and Android 8 at the time of their releases.
Saving Dynamics NAV Report as HTML File Prior to NAV 2017
Saurav shares in his blog how to save time transforming a report from a Word file to HTML using .NET components. This process is specifically for versions NAV 2013, NAV 2013 R2, NAV 2015, and NAV 2016, since the Report.SaveAsHTML function was supported prior to these releases, and was reintroduced in NAV 2017. The .NET variables used are WordApplication, WordDocument, WordHelper, and WordSaveFormat. See Saurav’s blog for the complete post.
