    Hi,

    If you look into the statement of directions you can see this:
    Our aim is to help customers achieve new levels of collaboration through intranet and extranet environments. With Microsoft Dynamics NAV 4.0, we introduced the Microsoft SharePoint-based Employee Portal that helps enable customers to access the critical business information they need. Our development plans around portals include continuing to leverage Microsoft Office SharePoint® 2007 technology as much as possible and making it easier for partners to utilize this technology to build their own solutions. For example, for the new role-based client in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 release there will be a new Microsoft SharePoint display target that will have the same functionality as Employee Portal and will enable partners to do even more integration with Microsoft SharePoint. And, for our existing customers, who upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 but do not wish to switch to the new client, Employee Portal will continue to run on the existing C/SIDE client

    Greetings

    Kuju

    There will be NEP in NAV 5.1 same as for NAV 5.0. NEP is for C/Side client, the SharePoint client is just DisplayTarget for the new 3-tier architecture with almost all functionality like rich NAV 5.1 client.

    What about dynamic conditional lookups and search in lookup lists? Or user still needs to dig through pages to find an item or customer?

    There is no internal news about that either. You'll still have to use the Search functionality of the browser.
