    Thanks Ilana for the info and the e-mail address.

    BlackTiger: Please, change your job and work with something else than NAV... :whistle:

    Ok, now, in my opinion, we can just talk about our feelings and general things around NAV 2009 but we cannot talk about the product itself (problems, bugs, solutions, interface etc.) and subjects which are based on the availability of CTP3 or any other version.

    For me it means, that I can tell you that NAV 2009, and I mean the RTC, is something totaly different than you are used to. And this, as you can see, is source of irritation for some people. I remember times when many people were abusing the Win XP, now same people are abusing Vista and saying that XP are the best... you can expect same thing with each new product. Same for Office 2007 ribbon. New things just needs some time, because people need some time to get used to new ideas (do not forget about ideas like "Earth is orbiting Sun" etc...).

    Yes, there are some aspects I do not like too, but I am sure that I will not change my work because that, because the good things are much better... 8)
    (I am already bored with solving same things with same tools in same ways... ;-))

    Let's go and learn something new! Take NAV 2009 as beginning of new Adventure in your NAV live!

    @ Black tiger - you have the option to run either the Navision forms or the Windows forms

    So even though you finally realize that you are under NDA, you STILL don't respect it.

    What David means is that despite that the intention is right, it is not allowd to post or blog about version 2009.

    Sorry.

    I hope you have fun with 2009 anyway...

    Give BlackTiger a break.

    The NAV community needs somebody like BlackTiger to b*tch and moan and make a rukus. As much as his choice of words do not jive with me, I do agree with some comments he makes (on this thread and elsewhere on this forum).

    NAV2009 requires you to re-learn a lot of things again and throw away some technical skills you've held on for so long.

    To BlackTiger, if we meet, I'm buying you a beer. :D

    :shock: are you saying that this exempts him from his NDA requirements? The contract that his employer signed with Microsoft clearly states that those employees are under the same NDA restrictions that the partner signed.

    Personally I think best for all is that this thread is deleted.

    That's not what I'm saying. If the company he works for signs an NDA, it's the company that employs him that needs to held accountable. If the employee decides to break the NDA without the employer knowing, then it's a separate issue.

    What I am saying is that comments by BlackTiger are valid and should be taken into consideration before it gets shot down because his choice of words is terrible. Or asking him to change jobs because he has strong opinions about Navision.

    To BlackTiger, you really have to work on your vocabulary. Saying things "suck" doesn't help anything improve. "Suck" is relative.
  • davmac1davmac1 Member Posts: 1,279
    End users who want to know about future versions like this one, should really go to Convergence where a lot of future information is presented by Navision.
    Plus you get to meet a lot of fellow Navision users and get incentive discounts to be used for future purchases.

    Ok. I'm subscribing to this ... topic in last time.

    Now I want to see and read EXACT section numbers of "NDA" which I "broke". And please include text as well. Because in 8+ years with NAV I've NEVER saw any "NDA".

    If I will not see answer in next 3 days then... I will call somebody "liar".

    A good place to get a copy of the NDA is from your employer.

    The absolutely best damn thing is this community. Page 5 ... five unanswered posts ... silence ;-) ... i really had to laugth ... damn good mibuso!
    And there was a great discussion about the NDA ruleset incl. input by Microsoft. Great! Maybe rename the thread in 'NDA discussion' or sth else.

    Well my opinion about NAV 2009 at all: The technology improvements are so damn good and useful. We are all humans (hope so ^^) and have a different opinion how a good look and feel has to be (for both RTC&CC!). So let us talk about again if we have the first customer feedback. End-Users! Not some Cust. who has 'seen' the new Version.

    A few words about "Use Classic Client"- "Use RTC"- "Build own Client around NAV Server"-posts:
    1. Think role based
    2. Remember integrated innovation
    3. Read SOD
    0. use a filter :P


    Enjoy NAV 2009 and have a damn good time with it!


    Sorry for re-open this thread, but it was too much fun to read it!

    Why throw away? I can't imagine skills that I'm now able to throw away. Please let us discuss this again with the Marketing Beta!)

    - How to increase number of (default/minimum) lines in "Order Line" page?
    - Have you tested new UI ("Sales Order Card" page) on 1024x768 screens? Ok, let's simplify a little. Let's say 1280x800.
    - How to create an "action" to upload some file (show "OpenFileDialog"/"SaveFileDialog") from "Page" to/from "server"?
    - How to quickly find item/customer in list (aka "Quick find")? And now without a mouse...
    - This one for "UX team". Since when became "natural" to look at screen's bottom? I mean new "replacement" for "TabControl". After expanding several "tabs" in SO entry "page" I've completely lost "lines" "part".
    - Color scheme...
    true... =D>
    users whitout quickfind = :shock:
    but there are also good things...

    Just put X,S as as text30 and I as integer.

    NAV2009:

    1) No matrixbox control - impacts:
    - analysis views
    - budgets - take a look (?!?) - it's strange!
    - dimension combinations - who can use it right now?
    - etc, etc

    Try to change column width on analysis views (he, he, he - funny isn't it?).
    Can you see vertical dimension when scrolled?
    It is simply childish to expect that *anybody* will accept this.

    Take a look at castrated account schedules - no way to navigate through periods, etc. etc.

    2) Virtually all usefull shortcuts do not work;
    - zoom
    - F8 (sic! tell it to your accountant!)
    - CTRL+F (???!)

    But now you have very funny shortcut : CTRL+U - drill down.
    Drilldown to ... what?
    It even works somehow ;-))) But not the way you expect ;-))
    TRY IT ;-)
    Who the hell has invented this?

    and last but not least:

    3) FORGET FLOWFIELDS FOREVER

    - try to add credit/debit amount to chart of accounts ... no one?
    - try to add balance to customer list ... not found ;-) ???
    - try to add INVENTORY flowfield to item list ... nothing ???
    - try to ... ;-(

    Most of our customers *do use it everyday*
    ... but MS has thoroughly investigated UI ... hmmm


    It is not Navision any longer ... sorry

    Just take it as a new product. Yes, there are some child illnesses, but FLOWFIELDS are working correctly...

    Shortcuts? Ok, they are standardized with other MS applications. if you learn them, you will be better in using other applications too...

    Matrixbox? Yes, it is pitty, but it means that there is space for your invention to create some tool for that e.g. through external application etc.).

    I am using NAV2009 for my everyday work. It takes some time to get used to but after that it is just fine.

    For some actions I still use the old client but mainly because I have not converted all forms and reports yet.

    Performance is fine and the product is very stable.
