NAV 2017 “Assisted Setup”

in this short post, i will talk about a new feature of NAV 2017: “Assisted Setup”.

Assisted setup” is a nice feature (composed by a lot of wizards ready to use..) useful to guide your users through setup scenarios.
With this feature is possible:
– use a predefined set of data to setup main features (for selected areas)
– have a great first setup configuration for your new company (enhanche first-time experience)

List of some wizards ready to use:
– Setup Company (Configurator for first one access)
– Approval workflow
– Item Approval
– Power Bi embedded configutation (Azure directory)
Setup Reporting
– Office 365 integration
– Dynamis CRM connection
– email logging
etc. etc.

My example: “Setup Reporting”
Setup Reporting” is a nice feature (wizard) to configure OData with fields selections, all in only “one shot” configuration.
Definition\Scope: “you can create data sets for building report in excel, Power Bi, Odata..”

below some “step by step” pictures.
