“ALL About” Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Financials

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 !

NAV 2017 and “Microsoft Flow” integration: “Business Notification Manager” reinvented in Cloud

Microsoft Flow Preview
Microsoft Definition: “Microsoft Flow is a “brand new” SaaS offering, available today in preview, for automating workflows across the growing number of applications and SaaS services that business users rely on.”

Integrations: In the preview of Microsoft Flow Microsoft provide native and Cloud Based integration both for NAV 2017 throughout the entire Dynamics 365 platform.

I consider it very interesting and useful because until not long ago, there was a solution called “Business Notification Manager” (available from NAV 4..NAV 2009, then abandoned as then also happened to Employ Portal, Commerce Gateway, etc.) which could be used to manage a small workflow regarding only the “notification of events” without the need to write one line of code to handle it.
“Business Notification Manager” : this feature Allows you to automatically send emails to your employees and business partners Informing them of business events.”

He was using the logic “IF Trigger Fired THE Action..” the same used both NAV Workflow that Microsoft Flow (in this case born in the Cloud world).

Business Notification for NAV 2009
Business Notification for NAV 5

and now: “Microsoft Flow”
Integration Flow, NAV 2017 Suite Dynamics365 available today.
Actually you can choose two integration triggers:
– When record is created
– When record is modified

Dynamics 365 Financials Preview (ex Project Madeira)

hi Readers,

some people have asked me again If the preview of Dynamics 365 Financials is still available and if it is constantly updated  of course, sure … you can access (or register) using the old link about Project Madeira preview.

For countries that can access the preview (testing countries)  you can sign up at this address:
Dynamics 365 Financials Preview (formerly Project Madeira)
try the preview button

Dynamics 365 Financials Preview link (after registration\authentication)


For countries rather than can not do, however, it has an ability to register before a user uses to Office 365 USA and then use it to sign up to the preview of Dynamics 365 Financials,.. to achieve this goal use this workaround by Waldo (follow it step by step..)



Setting up the Project “Madeira” Preview (also when you’re not from the US)

..anf after this steps you can correctly sign-in to Dynamics 365 Financials Preview link


Extensions  Management can also “add” and “test” extensions available in “AppsSource” store (example: try to add “Sales and Inventory Forecast” extension by Microsoft.

nice feedback Page
