Integrate the Dynamics NAV 2009 Role Tailored Client in Internet Explorer

Recently I discovered something very interesting on the Dynamics NAV 2009 Role Tailored Client, more exactly on possible ways to create shortcuts and hyperlinks to start the Role Tailored Client.

When you are debugging pages and/or reports, you usually run them from the command prompt like this:

But you can do the exact same thing from within Internet Explorer by typing the command in the URL bar: "dynamicsnav:////runreport?report=50000"

The following table shows some examples of hyperlinks and provides information about how to specify parameters

So in Internet Explorer you could create a menu containing hyperlinks to launch specific pages, reports or items in the navigation pane.

Just go into Internet Explorer and create a hyperlink like this:

And then you can click on it in your favorites and it will launch the Role Tailored client and the page, report or item in the navigation pane you defined in the hyperlink.

So, this gives us the possibility to create a separate menu in Internet Explorer Favorites containing a kind of Navigation Pane for the Role Tailored client.

Nice isn't it?


How would I go about creating a hyperlink to a report or page that would pull up a specific sales invoice for example?
