I have to admit that I am new to Dynamics NAV.
Even though our company has sold Dynamics NAV for over 10 years we used an old “Legacy” product until a year ago. But, I love NAV. And one of the things that I love and everyone loves and that makes NAV, well NAV, are dimensions. They are such an easy and powerful way to track, categorize, group, sort, analyze, report on anything in NAV. It is so easy to just click on that field and select your dimensions and post… until you realize that you clicked on the wrong dimension. You see that wrong value sitting on that transaction line and it should be so easy to just click on it and change it, but you can’t. You posted it. That would require a journal entry to reverse the transaction out of the one dimension and put it into the correct one. That is a lot of work for just one little accidental click.
I was lamenting my fast finger to one of our consultants and they just looked at me a smiled…”You need Dimension Manager!” And I got Dimension Manager from Dynamics NAV Addons. It has changed my life. I no longer fret when I screw up a transaction. With Dimension Manager I can select the transaction line and apply the correct value to the dimension. Yes, this I impacting my GL and GAAP requires that there is documentation of this change. Dimension Manager provides that with full audit logs that shows the change, when it was done and the user who did it. Enough to satisfy any auditor. Dimension Manager also has a batch update features that allows you to change the dimensions value on a large number of transactions at the same time. This is perfect for those times you want to combine transactions for one division in your company into another division or just re-do your reporting structure. Dimension Manager makes this an easy task and gives you the flexibility to change how you analyze your data as your business changes.
Dimension Manager is a reasonably priced add-on to NAV that will save hours and give you the flexibility to easily change your reporting structure.
