Directions 2017 – Keynote – Dynamics 365 “Tenerife”

MS Dynamics NAV, September 18, 2017, by waldo

I’m just done with the keynote, and have been writing down quite some notes – so I figured, why not turn this into a blogpost ;-). One with a very clear disclaimer: all the below, is how I percieved it, and might deviate from whatever Microsoft was trying to make clear to us. I repeat this every time I write a blog like this: I’m not good at this Marketing and Business sessions like Keynotes. But hey, I try ;-).

Full focus for the Cloud!

That was a clear message! Microsoft is still all-in. Quotes like “we’ll fully focus on the cloud” .. “we’ll first make sure the experience in the cloud is like it should be, and then …”. Let’s not be surprised about this. Do know though, there was absolutely no indication during the entire keynote, that support for on premise business would disappear – even there was a confirmation that there is no intention to kill off On Premise business. Just – there is a clear focus on what the market wants … cloud!

In a nutshell:

Dynamics 365 “Tenerife”

That’s how the next version of NAV is called. I have a feeling I shouldn’t be saying “NAV” anymore – then again – you know what I mean. “Tenerife” is a codename though – when there actually is a release (no release date was shared during this session), there will be a final product name. So, in short, knowing what we know now:
Dynamics 365 “Tenerife” is the next version of NAV
Dynamics 365 “Tenerife” is the next iteration of Dynamics 365

Full NAV Functionality in Dynamics 365

Finally a formal confirmation from Microsoft that our beloved NAV platform in the cloud, called Dynamics 365 today, is going to have FULL NAV functionality! Not only “Financials”, but the full app! Confirmed! I hold you to it, Microsoft ;-).

And not only that, you will be able to take your customized solution – as is – to Dynamics 365! Dynamics 365 “Tenerife” enables that. Microsoft still recommends Extensions – obviously – but it is not a full requirement anymore. We’re talking embed apps, and I can imagine limitations will come if you draw that card – so, if possible, let’s do Extensions! Let’s do a true app!

But – Microsoft listened – embed apps are going to be possible.

Common Data Services

CDS is a very key part in whole Microsoft as a company. It’s connecting all these Microsoft products with each other .. through CDS .. For all of this software to work together. .

We have seen a demo during the Keynote, that – I think – kind of like illustrated that. The invoicing app that comes with O365, which you can use on for example an iPhone, where you can create an invoice, which you see in the Business Center in O365, where you have prices that come from D365 Business logic … you know .. Cool stuff. More to come when somebody can wrap their head around it ;-).

First Look at Dynamics 365 “Tenerife”

Basically: Demo Time! Let me quickly go over of what I picked up of it.

Full Functionality

I understood that the full functionality is basically already there in the preview sandbox – you can simply enable it with the Sandbox Wizard (just search for the page).
Switch Rolecenter

You can now very simple change role center from the web client, without sign out/sign in. Very simple. Same is for changing companies, by the way.

Import data has been improved. Not only master data from quickbooks are imported, but also documents, like sales and purchase invoices, balances, … . It’s very easy to take for example quickbooks customers to D365 Tenerife.

One place to find all setup, like:
Assisted setup
Service connections
Posting groups – which have been made easier by a method that is called “suggest accounts”

New notifications to run more smoothly – we saw an example on Purchase Order, where Yannick punched in a “vendor invoice number” that was already used.

New interactions with excel – to “edit” the journal in excel. Even additional lines could be added from within excel. Basically, that’s how accountants like to work!

Invite Accountant

You can give your accountant access to your system by use of a wizard. Very useful for giving your specific accountant access, but it doesn’t stop there – it will also enable you to select from companies in a list, that would be able to provide accounting services for you ..

Yannick also showed that it recognized contact pictures, filling in a profile to recognise gender and age.. . All with Azure Services, which Microsoft is more-and-more consuming.


You will be able to personalize your user experience in the client. Not exactly the same as the In-App designer, but not that different. You can add, remove and move parts of fields and quite some more – all for you individually.


Also, terms of “behind the scenes”, quite some things were shared, like these impressive stats:
In 7 seconds, they are able to set up a new tenant, and make a new environment operation for the user. That is “hyper scale“, people!
The data-upgrade is about 30 seconds per tenant – this is the time that the system will be offline – but it’s fast! But it obviously depends on the amount of data – don’t know anything about that.. .

D365 has a 99.9% up-time. How they do that, is with something that is called “auto-healing“. How I understood it, the system has many telemetrics it can depend on, so it will know when something is not going well. And if it notices that, and it knows how to fix it (like restore NST or something), it will do that – without waiting for the customer to complain it doesn’t work. Basically, when something is wrong, Microsoft follows these steps:
Get customer running
Fix the bug (if any) in the system
Build telemetry so that it doesn’t happen again


You will be able to extend Tenerife

As already mentioned – Appsource will be extended to enable consulting offerings! Yep, you read that right! You can define a fixed price offering, on AppSource!

What I read from this, is that you will be able to (sorry for the somewhat unreadable slide)

These will become available right inside D365 Tenerife. AppSource is there to Build with you, Market with you and Sell with you!

In-App designer

Quite the same as personalization, but when you stop the designer, you have the opportunity to save the changes – you can take the changes, and deploy it on a different tenant.

It is basically the generated code that you get, that kind of like enables this In-App designer as being a great to for developers as well!


Dynamics 365 “Tenerife” will come with about 44 pre-defined API’s, which can be used to connect third-party system to NAV.

You don’t really need an NAV background to be able to integrate with it.

Accountant hub

This was cool to see – but I could have had slightly the wrong picture. Then again – this is what I got out of it.

Microsoft has created some kind of “Account Hub” app, on the Dynamics 365 platform, for accountants to connect to their clients.

Remember that for the user, there is a wizard to “invite” their accountant. Well, for the accounts – if invited – there is functionality to easily manage multiple of these customers, by providing functionality, like:
List of customers with basic data
Reports pulled from the customer
Specific tasks per customer
Ability to connect to the customer’s tenant (assuming he was invited ;-))
It will navigate straight to the specific page to perform the specific task


Every single O365 is already running the product .. will have a Dynamics 365 “Tenerife” backend. So they are ready to extend with our apps, our extensions, … . One Demo we have seen, is an integration with the “Booking”-ability in O365, where companies like Hairdressers, who wants the ability to have online appointment registration.

The scenario we have seen was:
On Facebook of a racing-company to maintain race-cars, there is a “Book Now” button to book an appointment
You needed to select what you need to do (maintenance)
who could do that (certain technician)
Date and time (obviously)

And it was going to add this in the O365 calendar – and not only that – it was also visible in a part of some customized part of Dynamics 365 “Tenerife”. Also the data for the Staff-list, and the kind of services, was data that came from the App in Dynamics 365.
Integration with outlook

Also on the Outlook-integration, Microsoft has expanded. We saw a demo where from quote-thru-payment, all was done from Outlook.
Customer sends some text in mail, very unstructured
Company pushed button that scans the unstructured message, and puts it in a quote with 3 lines
Sense quote (remember: still all-in Outlook)
Customer in outlook replies “Ok for me”
Company gets email and functionality figures out which document from contact and document number in the mail, and posts invoice and send it.
Customer receives a mail with invoice – and “Pay” link. Customer can pay with one of his cards that are linked to his Microsoft account.

As a conclusion, this is what we are up for this week:
12 workshops
60 breakout sessions
14 town halls
56 speakers

Wie installiere ich eigentlich das neue NAV2017 CU11 Update?

Hallo lieber NAV’ler,

ich habe vor kurzen einen BLOG-Beitrag veröffentlicht (URL)in dem ich auf das NAV 2017 Update CU11 für Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 hingewiesen habe.

Wir installiere ich dieses Update eigentlich?
Antwort: Ganz einfach!

Microsoft hat dazu selber eine Seite veröffentlicht:

How to install a Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 cumulative update

Was sagt uns der Google Übersetzer dazu?

Wie Installieren eines kumulativen Updates von Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017


Dieser Artikel beschreibt, wie Sie ein kumulatives Update für Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 installieren. Sie müssen alle Objekte neu kompilieren, nachdem Sie ein kumulatives Update installiert haben.

Bei einem kumulativen Update handelt es sich um eine kumulative Datei mit allen Hotfixes und behördlichen Features, die für Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 veröffentlicht wurden.

Ein kumulatives Update enthält Dateien, die in folgende Ordner unterteilt sind:

So installieren Sie die kumulativen Update-Dateien

Der Ordner APPLICATION enthält die folgenden Dateien:
• AccumulatedChangeLog. . .txt
• Änderungsprotokoll . .txt
• CUObjects. . .fob
• Objekte. .Objekte. . .txt

Führen Sie die folgenden Schritte aus, um die Anwendungsdateien zu installieren:

• Unveränderte Datenbanken:

1. Importieren Sie die CUObjects. . .fob-Datei in eine nicht modifizierte Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017-Datenbank.

How to: Import Objects

So importieren Sie Objekte, indem Sie finsql.exe mit dem Befehl „ImportObjects“ ausführen

1.Bewegen Sie sich an einer Eingabeaufforderung zum Speicherort von finsql.exe. Standardmäßig befindet sich finsql.exe unter C: \ Programme (x86) \ Microsoft Dynamics NAV \ 100 \ RoleTailored Client \.

2. Führen Sie finsql.exe mit dem Parameter „command = importobjects“ aus. Sie müssen die folgenden Parameter angeben:

To import objects by using the development environment UI

1.In the development environment, on the Tools menu, choose Object Designer.

2.On the File menu, choose Import.

3.In the Import Objects window, locate the folder where the import file is located, select the file, and then choose Open.

If you import objects from a .txt file, then the objects in the file overwrite any objects that are already in the database. If you import objects from a .fob file and one or more objects in the file has the same ID as an object that are already in the database, then you receive a warning. You can choose to either cancel the import or open the Import Worksheet to resolve the conflicts.

4.Use the Import Worksheet to specify how to resolve conflicts between objects in the import file and objects in the database. For more information, see Import Worksheet.

2. Ersetzen Sie die vorhandenen Objekte in der Datenbank durch die kumulativen Update-Objekte.

Weitere Informationen finden Sie unter Gewusst wie: Importieren von Objekten.

• Geänderte Datenbanken oder lokale Datenbanken, für die lokale kumulative Updates nicht freigegeben werden: 1.Importieren Sie die CUObjects. . .fob-Datei in das Fenster „Arbeitsblatt importieren“ in Ihrer geänderten Datenbank.

Weitere Informationen finden Sie unter Arbeitsblatt importieren.
2. Ersetzen Sie die Objekte in Ihrer Datenbank, die NICHT geändert wurden.
3.Verwenden Sie die Datei CUObjects. . .txt, um die kumulativen Update-Objekte mit den Objekten in Ihrer Datenbank zu vergleichen und zusammenzuführen, die geändert wurden.
Sie können auch die Changelog verwenden. . .txt-Datei, um die Änderungen manuell auf die Objekte in Ihrer Datenbank anzuwenden.

Hinweis Wenn eine Tabelle in der kumulativen Aktualisierung ein neues Feld enthält und die gleiche Tabelle in Ihrer Datenbank geändert wurde, verwenden Sie die Merge: Existing <-Neu oder die Merge: New <-Existing Optionen im Fenster Arbeitsblatt importieren, um die neuen Felder zu importieren . Weitere Informationen finden Sie unter Optionen zum Zusammenführen von Objekten.

Upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017



This topic provides an overview of how to upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017. The upgrade process depends on different factors, such as the version of Dynamics NAV that you are upgrading from, and the degree to which your solution differs from the standard version of Dynamics NAV. The mains tasks range from converting the database to upgrading application code and data.

Use the following table to determine the procedures that you must complete for your upgrade scenario.

Scenario Procedures
Full upgrade from one of the following versions:

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016
  1. Upgrading the Application Code
  2. Upgrading the Data
Full upgrade from one of the following versions:

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SP1
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 4.0
  1. Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013.
    For more information, see Upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 in the MSDN Library.Alternatively, you can upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SP1 or Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 as described on the Dynamics NAV Team Blog.
  2. Upgrading the Application Code
  3. Upgrading the Data
Technical upgrade of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 database to a new platform version with no application changes, such as with a cummulative update

You can also use this procedure to convert a previous Dynamics NAV database to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 technical requirements, and then upgrade the application and data later.

Before you begin the upgrade process, see Upgrade Considerations for tips about things to consider when you prepare to upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017.


If you upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 or earlier to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 or later, the link between interaction records and logged email messages is lost. To resolve this issue, the administrator has to log all mails again to restore the links. For more information, see Logging Interaction Links are Lost When You Upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2.

Automating the Upgrade Process using Sample Windows PowerShell Scripts

You can use Windows PowerShell scripts to help you upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017. You can use automation to upgrade a single Dynamics NAV database as well as multiple Dynamics NAV databases that use the same application. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 provides sample scripts that you can adapt for your deployment architecture. For more information, see Automating the Upgrade Process using Sample Windows PowerShell Scripts.
