What’s new in Dynamics NAV 2018?

Building on the functionality of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 which provided embedded Power BI, seamless in Office 365 experience, faster set up, built-in Cortana Intelligence, improved automation with PowerApps and Flow, simpler management of Jobs and easier organisation of item attributes, NAV 2018 further supports all areas of your business:

Setup and Extensions

With NAV 2018 comes a single Setup and Extensions area, with assisted setups to help get companies up and running as quickly as possible.


user task

User tasks

This new feature allows tasks to be assigned to any user, with new pending user tasks highlighted in a cue on the role centre.

  • System wide tasks
  • Track the due date
  • Recurrence available
  • Task lists per user

Once completed, there is functionality to bulk-delete the completed user tasks.

Employee ledger entries

In previous versions of NAV, employees had to be set up as vendors to post expenses. Now, NAV 2018 allows expenses to be posted against employee cards, with a range of tools to simplify the process.

  • Create Journal entries directly for employees – only supports local currency (LCY)
  • Employee posting group, definable on the employee card
  • Make payments to the employee in the Payments Journal
  • Get payment suggestions with a full list of outstanding employee payments
  • Apply payments to open employee entries in one go, linking the payment to the employee journal entry and closing both.

Image analyzer

Image analyzer

Integrating with the Azure image analyzing service using Cortana intelligence, NAV 2018 can automatically fill in data based on images.

  • On Contact cards, having an image of the person will allow NAV to automatically detect gender and guess age.
  • For Item images, automatically add attributes including type and colour.

Power BI reporting

With a new connector integrating Power BI with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018, you will be able to discover reports by making them visible from your most frequently used NAV lists.
With updated content packs that are freely available to the public, connect to your reports on a single page and access them from within the NAV clients.

Power BI

Dynamics 365

Updated integration with Dynamics 365 for Sales

Over the years, the integration between Dynamics NAV and Dynamics CRM has gotten easier, with more data being transferred.

Preconfigured Excel reports

With the ever increasing integration of NAV with Office 365, it makes sense that the evolution is out-of-the-box Excel reports. One click takes you to interactive reporting in Excel, allowing you to get fast insights into your data.


A Wide Range of Enhancements

As with any release of Dynamics NAV, the improvements in the latest version are too numerous to mention them all in detail, however here is a quick list of some of the key elements:

    • Distribute Item Charges based on volume and weight
    • Direct Transfer orders – no requirement for in-transit location

  • Payroll import from QuickBooks
  • Master data from customers and vendors can now be updated from sales and purchase documents
  • When searching, help results will show alongside in-product results
  • New automation of Intercompany inbox and outbox
  • Bulk Invoicing improvements
  • Suggestion of accounts for posting groups
  • Print descriptions from related posted document lines using show details in the Print G/L Register report
