Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 - Changes in Service Tier.

Hi Readers,


In this article, we will try to discuss and find out changes between Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 Service Tier Panel.

We will visit tab by tab and try to identify what new added in the service tier panel and try to figure out what those new options can be used in the system.




What Changed in General Tab, are listed below with a comparison between Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018.

1. Default Language
Specifies which of the installed Dynamics NAV languages on the server instance will be used as the default language in the clients. Set the value to a valid language culture name, such en-US or da-DK.

In the Dynamics NAV Web and Tablet clients, the Default Language setting determines the language that is used if the web browser's language setting does not match any installed language or a language in the Supported Languages setting, if used. In the Dynamics NAV Windows client, this is the language that is used if the language setting of the computer does not have a match.

2. Enable Incremental Company Deletion
Specifies whether to delete companies incrementally. If you enable this setting, when you delete a company, the company record is deleted from the database immediately but the company data that is stored in the SQL tables will be deleted later by the task scheduler.

3. Supported Languages
Specifies which of the installed Dynamics NAV languages on the server instance will be available for use in the clients. If you do not specify a language, then all installed languages will be available.
In the client, users can switch among the supported languages. The value is a semicolon-separated list that contains the language culture names for each language.
If you specify any languages in this setting, then you must include the language that you specified in the Default Language setting.
