Shortcuts in Dynamics-nav 4.0

Did you know that as an end user in Dynamics-nav you are able to create your own Shortcuts ? You can put together your own personal menu in the Shortcuts menu (Shortcut menu: a user-defined menu in the Navigation Pane). You can include shortcuts to:

  • forms and reports in the program
  • specific records in your database (for example, customer card 10000 or sales order 30XB2)
  • documents and folders on your computer or a server
  • web sites

For example, if you only use a small fraction of the menu items in the menus that you have been assigned, you can copy all of the menu items that you use to the Shortcuts menu so that you have everything in one place, and then you can disregard the other menus. Then you can organize the shortcuts to make your work more efficient.

You can also send a shortcut to your desktop, or to an email and send it to someone:

So in this case when I click on that shortcut, Dynamics-nav will open and it will automaticly also open the Vendor Form, showing the selected Vendor.


Nice examples. Have a link to some of the more elaborate ways to go about this? I'm having a little bit of trouble creating my shortcuts here...
