NAV 2017 with Office 365 and Sharepoint Integration

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 ; now i would like to talk about Dynamics NAV with Office 365 and Sharepoint Integration

Best goals:
Dynamics NAV with:
– Office 365 Integration
– Sharepoint Online Integration
– “Complete Demo Environment of Dynamics NAV 2017” – Azure

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 : Files are located in: “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.”
