Send SMS – Dynamics NAV

 

Hey Friends,

Today I am here to discuss as how to send SMS from NAV. Before I go further and discuss the Process I just want to let everybody know that it’s not something which is free but we need to buy some credits. 🙂 🙂

There are many ways to do this but I will show with the help of a Portal I.E. http://www.bulksms.com/.

Now first of all you need to do a Signup on this site and have your own Login and Password. Once you have your ID and Password and you are logged in you will have a look and feel of something like this.

Now as you can see you will have initially 0.00 credits which you need to buy some from Buy Credits menu. Once you have a credit you need to set-up an Email. Press Email to SMS and open the page.

Update FlowFields at Runtime – No Need to Refresh

 

Hey Friends,

I believe many of you have experienced a situation where you have added a FlowField to calculate say Sum of Quantities from the Sales Line for each and every respective Orders. Though the requirement seems very simple but every time you need to refresh the Page to see it’s effect if you are adding any new line to the Order. See the below Screenshot.

FlowField Calculation at Runtime

Every time you will add a new line you need to refresh the Page to get the Header values updated, But just adding a few lines of Code you can make FlowFields effective without even Refreshing the Page. It will reflect you at the Run-time only. Have a look on the below Screenshot.

You just need to add the above  piece of code which is actually affecting the FlowField, like in this case its Quantity of the Sales Line.

NOTE – You Don’t Need to do this for NAV 2016 as it’s been already handled there in itself. 🙂
