ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest - vol 239
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.

D365 Business Central Web Client FilteringKyle asks: “I like the web client filtering where you just right-click on the column heading and add a filter, much like you do in Excel. But how do you add a filter for a field that isn't on that Page?” Tom M replies: “In the latest BC version, if you right-click on the column header and choose Filter, it opens up the filter pane on the left. Press the + Filter button, and you can choose any field. Do you like the shameless RPM on BC plug in my images? :) “
What is BC14?Kyle wants to know: “What is BC14? Is that the April feature release, or farther out in the future?” Bill replies: “Spring release of BC SaaS.” Saurav adds: “BC 14 is also Spring (April) Release. It’s different than BC 13.x, and there is an upgrade path from BC 13.x to BC 14. It’s On Premises and SaaS.” Kyle asks: “Is it a CU of the existing Business Central on premises, or is it a new installation kit that resets the counter back to zero on cumulative updates?” Saurav clarifies: “It’s not a cumulative update. It is a new product and I don’t expect a CU for 14.x, as it does follow the old NAV release procedure. Cumulative Update will be available for 13.x, which is Business Central earlier releases.“
