What's new in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017?

Updated: Jul 28, 2021

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a complete enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solution for mid-sized organizations that is fast to implement, easy to configure, and simple to use. Right from the start, simplicity has guided, and continues to guide, innovations in product design, development, implementation, and usability.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017

With the release of NAV 2017 will come a plethora of new and exciting features. Some of them are:

In Office 365 experience

Stay connected with all the parts of your business. Microsoft Dynamics NAV is directly linked to Office 365, which means you can easily review, analyze, and share date with relevant colleagues in your organization. You can navigate effortlessly between your Microsoft Dynamics NAV data and your Office tools - for example, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Bookings, or Microsoft Excel.

Embedded Power BI

Continuing the powerful integration, you can now use embedded Power BI to easily create insightful charts and reports, and then make them available within your Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 role center.

Setup and configuration

Get up and running faster. Save time and avoid unnecessary manual tasks with the assisted setup wizard that helps you import data, set up integration with Office 365, and enjoy a simplified setup experience, with predefined setup data and limited customer interaction.

User experience

Continuing the significant improvements to simplicity, productivity, and performance, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 enhances your experience even further.


Work with ready-to-use financial statements and gain accessible insights into the financial performance of your business. The new default Account Schedules means that no set up is required, making it quick and intuitive to produce the financial reports that you need, and point-in-time reporting means you can view the financial state of your business for any given time. Reporting is also made easier with the new Account Categories that provide structure to your chart of accounts.


Working with Jobs is now more straightforward, helping you manage projects more easily and get more visibility into the details, set up jobs and enter time sheets using the new Jobs Setup wizard and quickly access common tasks, new charts, and a new My Jobs list using the updated Project Manager role center.


Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 continues to streamline your CRM experience and enhance the process of integrating to CRM online.


Organize and classify your products the way you want, performing advanced searches on your catalog in just a few clicks and displaying only the information you need. You can create custom item attributes and assign an item attribute value, according to your business needs, helping you manage items or create sales documents.


Make it easier for your customers to pay your invoices online by including hyperlinks to payment services, such as PayPal. Even provide PayPal Standards payment links in invoices, supporting multiple ways of accepting payments, including credit cards and PayPal accounts.

Cortana Intelligence

Built-in Cortana Intelligence takes advantages of historical data and improves your insights into your predicted sales, helping you manage your stock and respond to your customers. Based on the forecast, the sales and Inventory extension helps create replenishment requests for vendors, saving you time.


Modify your Microsoft Dynamics NAV system without directly altering the source resources, making it easier to deploy, manage, and upgrade customizations or extensions. Navigate through an install with only a few clicks and easily view extension information, such as name, description, version, publisher, and links. You can also install or uninstall extensions easily using the Extension Management page and quickly choose the extensions you want using the easily-recognizable logos.
