Identify and stop idle Dynamics NAV sessions using User Session Control Addon

Since the advent of RTC clients and 3-tier architecture of Dynamics NAV, it’s been a question in the minds of thousands of NAV developers as well as end-users, that how to find out the idle time of the users connected to the service tier.

How Microsoft Dynamics CRM workflow definitions are stored in the SQL Database

Microsoft Dynamics CRM, is one of the prominent offerings from the Microsoft Dynamics family of ERP and CRM products. It is quite a long time now that MS CRM is in the marketplace. We came across a very odd request from one of our clients, asking us develop a tool which will generate documentation for the CRM workflows.

Conducting interviews effectively.

   Interviewing candidates for an open position in my company has never been an easy task for me. I have always tried to keep a close vigil on what specifics I need to understand. I have never hesitated to put the candidates on the spot and test them. I don’t believe in embarrassing anyone, but it has always been effective to be thorough with the questions being asked. It is also important to let the interviewee be comfortable before I start firing the critical questions. &n...

I have tried to learn from all these and have also taken initiative to increase my knowledge on the subject of effective...

New Tools in NAV 2013 (the less talked about ones) - Part 1

For some time now, I have been thinking about compiling on a list of new features and subtle tools in the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, typically those which generally do not find their mention in the What’s New documents, because they are probably outshone by the more glittering and heavy weight features. There are almost always some of these less shining ones, which are quite handy and useful, but are not highlighted anywhere. So, I thought to put some of these into my first ...
