Recently I found some questions in Microsoft Dynamics Community about these two topics: Office 365 and Sharepoint Integration with NAV. Some time ago, i talked about Azure deployment, take a look at my old post “ALL” about “Deploying Microsoft Dynamics NAV on Windows Azure” NAV 2015
https://robertostefanettinavblog.com/2015/07/23/all-about-deploying-microsoft-dynamics-nav-on-windows-azure/ ; now i would like to talk about Dynamics NAV with Office 365 and Sharepoint Integration
Dynamics NAV with:
– Office 365 Integration
– Sharepoint Online Integration
– “Complete Demo Environment of Dynamics NAV 2017” – Azure
Image from Freddy Blog
Existing powershell scripts “ready to go”
Powershell Scripts are existing and ready to use, you can find these scripts in Dynamics NAV DVD Image folders or in c:\DEMO\ for Dynamics NAV Azure Images deployments (the folders will be created directly by images).
Example : “D:\Dynamics.100.W1.2087091.DVD\WindowsPowerShellScripts\NAVOffice365Administration\ or in c:\DEMO\ for NAV 2017 Azure Images.
A List of “Suggested” Links
Below a list of suggested links to achieve correct installation\configuration for a complete NAV 2017 Demo Environment with Office 365 and SharePoint Integration. Best Links (from my opinion) are available on Freddy Blog, note that all links from Freddy are free to use (not under NDA or only for Partners…), very useful for ALL people.

About Sharepoint Integration
SharePoint and Microsoft Dynamics NAV – best topics
From MSDN Online:
“If you set up a SharePoint site, you can add Microsoft Dynamics NAV as an app to the site so that the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client opens when the user chooses an icon. Then, you can add web parts that show Microsoft Dynamics NAV data, such as a list of sales invoices with overdue payments. Users can drill down into the data and the web parts will open the relevant page in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client when the user chooses an icon or a link.”

Another post of “ALL About” Series (the most appreciated by my readers….), in this case i want to talk about Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Financials because some people asked me information about it; i would like to remember that in ITALY is not yet available and remember also that I’m not an MVP of Dynamics 365 (i don’t think they exist today, maybe they will exist in the future), only of NAV.
Below I have gathered many of the existing links related to Microsoft’s officials information, a lot of posts, links, videos and forums’s discussions.
When Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Financials will be launched in Italy of course I’ll take care about it with a dedicated post about released product.
Stay tuned !

“How to” print reports to PDF and send email
Hi guys, another post about my “How to” posts series.
In this case, I want to talk about this topic: “How to” print reports to PDF and send mail; we can have some methods to achieve this goal, with NAV 2017, NAV 2016 and with old NAV releases.
First Scenario: “How to” print reports to PDF
Schedule a report to print to PDF Format
1) “HOW TO” PRINT REPORTS TO PDF FORMAT
WITH NAV 2016 and mailing & sending documents process
“In NAV 2016 managing mailing & sending documents process has been improved.
Compared to the NAV 2015 version, you can send documents to printer, via email and via EDI in a single operation; you can set a default “document sending template” for each customer.
For this purpose new NAV objects have been introduced.”
Look at my old post here: https://robertostefanettinavblog.com/2016/05/30/nav-2016-documents-sending-objects-features/
WITH NAV 2017 and NST Reports Parameters
With NAV 2017, we can use NST Reports Parameters to activate “SAVEAS” function to produce reports in PDF format, we can schedule a report with PDF Output using SAVEAS function in report scheduling.
To achieve this gold you need only to:
Activate SAVEAS function in NST report section
Schedule a report in task scheduler
Configure the Output Layout for report
Look at my old post here NAV 2017 Task Scheduler https://robertostefanettinavblog.com/2016/11/04/nav-2017-task-scheduler/
and look at section of post: “JOB QUEUE” IMPROVEMENTS
NST Reporting Parameters (nice for activate “SAVEAS” function for reporting scheduling)
Sample of Report Scheduling
WITH OLD NAV RELEASES
..but for older releases of NAV we need to produce a PDF Output using SAVEAS function after report printing, we haven’t report parameter optionrequest page available in older releases.
To achieve this gold you need only to:
Activate SAVEAS function in report
Schedule a report in task scheduler
NAV 2013 SAMPLE REPORT TO CREATE PDF IN BATCH MODE (in this case using report 206 Sales Posted Invoice)
Generate PDF report with SAVEAS feature
Schedule this report on Job queue
SAVEASPDF Function (Report)
[Ok :=] REPORT.SAVEASPDF(Number, FileName[, Record]) OR
[Ok :=] ReportVariable.SAVEASPDF(FileName)
“When you call SAVEASPDF, the report is generated and saved to “FileName.” A Saving to PDF window shows the status of the process. Note that the request page will not be shown.
The FileName parameter specifies a location on the computer that is running Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server. “
Filename := ‘C:MyReportsreport206Demo.pdf’;
ReturnValue := Report.SAVEASPDF(206, Filename, record);
Sample of PDF generator batch
// READING ALL POSTED INVOICES TO PRINT PDF REPORTS
SalesInvoiceHeader.SETRANGE(“PDF Generated”, FALSE);
IF SalesInvoiceHeader.FINDSET THEN BEGIN
Filename:= SalesInvoiceHeader.”No.” + ‘.PDF’;
Report.SAVEASPDF(206, Filename, SalesInvoiceHeader); //PDF CREATED BY SAVEAS FUNCTION
UNTIL SalesInvoiceHeader.NEXT = 0;
2) “HOW TO” EMAILING PDF REPORTS
Second Scenario: “How to” emailing PDF reports
Ø Send generated PDF reports via email
Sendmail with NAV SMTP Sendmail Codeunit (NAV .NET integration)
To send email from NAV (OnDemand or Scheduled), you can use standard NAV SMTP Codeunit: Codeunit 400 SMTP Mail.
This codeunit use one .NET object with some functions
Mail DotNet Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.SMTP.SmtpMessage.’Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.SMTP’
Functions: CreateMessage, TrySend, Send
Example SMTP SENDMAIL TEST
Subject := ‘SUBJECT SAMPLE TEXT’ ;
Body := ‘BODY SAMPLETEXT’;
SMTP.CreateMessage(‘SENDER’, ‘info@Cronus.it’, ‘email@example.com’, Subject, Body, TRUE);
Body := Body + ‘ OTHER’;
Sendmail with external .NET Integration Solution
Some time ago I published a project solution on MSDN TechNet.
Solution: “Send e-mail with attachment and templates – My Script on MSDN Gallery,a short C# script to send e-mail with attachment and template, DLL .NET usable on Windows Systems.
Function: SetMail(string parfrom, string parto, string parcc, string parsubject, string partextmessage, string parpathattach, stringparpathtemplate)
MY NEW SENDMAIL 2.0 PROJECT WITH WS INTEGRATION
Sendmail 2.0 C# Project
Complete package solution (PRINT REPORTS TO PDF+SEND EMAIL INTEGRATION)
NAV Web Services integration
Best mailing errors check and logging.
SOON AVAILABLE: look at MSDN Scripting gallery section or on my GitHUb page soon.

PRODUCTION ORDERS IN NAV
…a short guide about NAV Production Orders, based on MSDN Online NAV help.
PRODUCTION ORDER PURPOSE
General Definiton : “Production Order – an order that initiates the manufacturing process”
“A production order is an order issued within a company to produce a specific quantity of material within a certain timeframe. A production order may be issued pursuant to a sales order, and its issuance triggers a number of events. If components in the bill of materials are in stock, reservations are generated for those items; if they are not in stock, then requisition orders may be generated. Requisition orders may also be generated for production that occurs externally to the firm. Planned costs for the order are also generated and capacity requirements are generated for the work centers.”
NAV PERSPECTIVE: “Production orders are the central components of the Microsoft Dynamics…
