Microsoft Dynamics NAV: Unlocking Multiple Language and Human Resource Functionality

Microsoft Dynamics NAV: Unlocking Multiple Language and Human Resource Functionality

Microsoft_Dynamics_NAV_Multi_language_and_HRA Basic Guide to using Multi-Language and HR Functionality in Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Microsoft Dynamics NAV can handle all of your essential ERP needs in Wholesale Distribution and Manufacturing. For companies looking to break into the ERP space, it can be difficult to find just the right ERP framework to build off of. Finding a framework to handle your basic ERP needs doesn’t have to be a daunting task. For those with needs in financials and trade, The Microsoft Dynamics NAV Starter Pack will include all necessary basic functionality such as:

  • Basic Financials Management (General Ledger and Fixed Assets)
  • Basic Supply Chain Management and Basic Sales Management (Sales, Purchasing and Inventory)
  • Professional Services (Project management) with a wide set of
  • Business Insight and reporting functionality as an integral part of the product.

While Microsoft also offers a more comprehensive version of its Dynamics NAV software, the Extended Pack, this entry will focus mainly on the functionality and basics of the Starter Pack. For those with basic ERP needs, the Starter pack will include most, if not all, tools necessary to run their business. Of particular importance in regards to the Starter Pack is its access to Multiple Languages and Human Resources ERP Functionality. Today we will be focusing on these two features of the Starter Pack.

  1. Multiple Document Languages:  Set up alternative descriptions of your inventory items and print reports in multiple languages (for example, you can make invoices in the receiver’s language). Descriptions can be linked to individual customers, which is especially useful for sales to foreign countries.  It can, however, be useful to customize the item descriptions even for domestic customers. The alternative item descriptions are automatically selected. To use the multiple language features, the texts for the alternative languages must be inserted in the relevant application objects.
  2. Multiple Languages (Each):  Switch languages on the client in real time, provided that the language is available in the program. The language module can be used to run Multilanguage functionality. However, users can use this language module only if the personal license file contains the language granule for the specific language. Each language granule covers the functionality for only one specific language. For example, the Danish language module contains all Danish strings for Danish functionality. It does not contain Danish strings for French or other language functionality
  3. Basic Human Resources:  Efficiently manage your company’s human resources. Group and track relevant employee information and organize employee data according to different types of information, such as experience, skills, education, training, and union membership. Store personal information, track job openings in your organization, and extract a list of candidates for these positions. Keep track of benefits and company items such as keys, credit cards, computers, and cars. Easily record all types of absences in units of measure that you define, and attach alternative addresses and relatives’ names to employees.
