Attach dimensions to users in Dynamics NAV

As most of you probably know, default dimensions can be attached to a wide range of accounts in Dynamics NAV (Customers, Vendors, Items, Fixed Assets, …).

In some cases it would be useful to attach default dimensions to users so that the user logged in, defines some of the dimensions to use… but… in standard NAV it is not possible to attach default dimensions directly to a user.

An easy to use workaround are the Responsibility Centers. To a Responsibility Center, default dimensions can be attached in the same way as to for example a customer. So if you create a Responsibility Center to which you attach the “User Dimensions” and you attach the Responsibility Center to the user (User Setup), NAV will use for all the purchase, sales and service documents the Responsibility Center from the user logged in, and in that way also the dimensions attached to the responsibility center… which are the dimensions you would like to be defined by the user…

Pay attention: this works fine for documents with Responsibility Centers, but not for journals.


Nice one!
I already thought about programming... :).
