How to Remove the Departments Action Button in NAV 2015
Some customers may not want to use Departments menu available. We need to have some option to remove the ‘Departments’ menu if we don’t want it on role center page. As we are all know we can customize a role center to hide the Departments menu for that client or a user. But what if want to hide for all users? How to do that? Here, I have jotted down the steps to achieve this.
Let’s consider the role center “Sales Order Processor” is shown below.
Open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV windows client in configuration mode (to open follow the instructions explained below).
At the command prompt, navigate to the root folder of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 Windows client. For example:
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\71\RoleTailored Client.
At the command prompt, navigate to the root folder of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 Windows client. For example:
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\80\RoleTailored Client
After execution of above command screenshot look like this.
For instance, to open the “Order Processor” Role center page in configuration mode, execute the below command in the command prompt as shown in the below screen shot.
Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe -configure -profile:"ORDER PROCESSOR"
After execution of above command, the “ORDER PROCESSOR” Role center windows client will be opened in configuration mode as shown in below screen shot.
Now you can make changes whatever you wish to, remove actions buttons or menus required, for example. Here I remove the Departments action button which as shown in below screen shot.
Press the OK button and after system asks user’s confirmation to keep the changes have been made, as shown below. There after system restart the Windows client automatically.
After system restarts, the client Departments action button will disappear on the role center page as shown in below screen shot.
It will effect for all the users who uses the “ORDE PROCESSOR” profile.
After we have removed the Departments action button what if you wish to add it back? We can also do that one easily. Here I explained below.
Open the windows client in configuration mode, as explained earlier such as follow all the same command executions, and restore it to default as shown in below screen shot.
