Common mistakes we make in C/AL - Vol. 1 - Tips, Tricks & Facts #6

Hi peeps, starting a new series of posts on what are the common mistakes made by developers like us which have bad, sometimes worse, impacts on database transactions. And what the kind of coding styles we must avoid to keep the code neat and clean. And what are the DO's and DON'T's for writing C/AL code.

We gotta remember that we are not the last developers who will write a particular code somewhere in the NAV objects. There will be more developers after us who will be carrying the torch and some of them might run into some code which was written by us.

Therefore, your code must better be understandable and optimized!

Dynamics NAV 2017: Changes in the Core Application and Platform

Enhancements in sales order processes
Dynamics NAV 2016 introduced Dynamics CRM Integration that enables an optimal and seamless experience for our customers in the lead-to-cash process when they are utilizing Dynamics CRM for customer engagement and Dynamics NAV for order processing and financials.
In Dynamics NAV 2017, you can now synchronize assembly items and bill-of-material items (BOMs) to Dynamics CRM as CRM products without price.
The sales person in Dynamics CRM can now use the price lists from Dynamics NAV while creating a sales order. When they add the item to the sales order line in Dynamics CRM, they are also able to see the inventory level (availablity) of the item from Dynamics NAV. A new wizard “Dynamics CRM Connection Setup”, will publish Item Availablity Webservice as a part of the Assisted Setup that enables this scenario.
