Configuration and Development
Application Builder - A La Carte
Change the business rules and special calculations that work behind the scenes. Business rules and special calculations are defined in C/AL (the C/SIDE application language). Although this granule includes access to C/AL, it does not permit access to existing C/AL code that updates write-protected tables (for example, postings). With Application Builder, you can create entirely new areas of functionality for your application, enabling you to tailor Microsoft Dynamics NAV to fit your entire organization. It also enables you to create 100 codeunit objects (numbered from 50,000 to 50,099). You can also take advantage of the functionality included for developers in the Navigation Pane Designer (for example, creating new menu items).
Page Designer - Starter Pack
Change existing pages (windows displayed on the screen for data entry and inquiry), and it enables you to create 100 page objects (included and numbered from 50,000 to 50,099). The Page Designer granule also enables you to use the Navigation Pane Designer. This means, for example, that you can create new menu items. This granule does not include access to C/AL from pages.
Report Designer - Starter Pack
Change existing reports and create 100 new report objects (numbered from 50,000 to 50,099). This granule provides access to C/AL (the C/SIDE application language) from reports used for defining special calculations and business rules. Create new reports from scratch or copy an existing report to use as a starting point. Every report in Microsoft Dynamics NAV is created using this tool and can therefore be easily customized. You will need the Microsoft Visual Studio Report Designer 2010 to design the layout of a report in development environment. Microsoft Visual Report Designer comes with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Professional, Premium, or Ultimate. This granule enables you to take advantage of the functionality included for developers in the Navigation Pane Designer (for example, creating new menu items).
Solution Developer - A La Carte
Change the business rules and special calculations that work behind the scenes. Business rules and special calculations are defined in C/AL (the C/SIDE application language). This granule provides access to code that updates write-protected tables to the Merge and Upgrade Tools. You can also:
• Change or create any object type.
• Use the menu options Translate/Export and Translate/Import in the Object Designer.
(These options are not available with the Application Builder granule.)
Table Designer - Starter Pack
Change existing table definitions and create 10 new tables (numbered from 50,000 to 50,009). You can change properties on fields, such as the field name, decimal places, and maximum value, add new fields to existing tables, and create new tables to store data specific to your business. Create keys for sorting information and change or create new Flow Fields and FlowFilters for “slicing and dicing” information in new
ways. This granule does not include access to C/AL from tables.
XMLports (100) - Starter Pack
Create new or change existing XMLport objects. XMLport Designer provides access to C/AL (the C/SIDE application language) from XMLports used for defining special calculations and business rules. Every XMLport object in Microsoft Dynamics NAV is created using this tool and can therefore be customized easily. This granule enables you to create 100 new XMLport objects (numbered from 50,000 to 50,099) and to take advantage of the functionality included for developers in the Navigation Pane Designer (for example, creating new menu items).
Query Designer - Starter Pack
The Query designer provides the ability to modify existing queries in the application, as well as create up to 100 new queries. The Query designer is the main tool for creating objects of type Query. Query objects retrieve subsets of data spread across the database and are data pumps for various places within the application such as charts and business logic.

Advanced Dimensions provides unlimited dimensions for use in transactions in all ledgers. You can name all the dimensions as most appropriate for your business. In addition to an unlimited number of dimensions, this granule includes advanced dimensions functionality that enables you to set up rules for how to combine dimensions and dimension values. This helps you control the use of dimensions and increases the reliability of output based on dimensions. You can also:
• Set up rules for prioritization of default values and define dimension rules to fit your specific business.
• Set up and use analysis views to analyze general ledger transactions per dimension and combine dimensions as you want.
• Include budget information in analysis views, which is an advanced way of analyzing data using dimensions.
• Combine analysis of dimensions with the use of account schedules.
Basic Dimensions - Starter Pack
Add two additional dimensions to the general ledger and to any of the other ledgers in Microsoft Dynamics NAV for greater flexibility when working with analytical tools. You can give the two dimensions the names most appropriate for your business and assign dimension codes to each transaction that involves a general ledger account, customer, vendor, fixed asset, resource, job, or inventory item. In addition, you can define default dimension values and rules for the default values for all account types (general ledger, customer, vendor, item, and so on) to help you easily add dimensions to all transactions. This granule can be used in companies that, for example, have several projects, regions, or profit centers. You can also use it to:
• Closely analyze projects in companies that work with projects across departments and functions.
• Generate a statement of operations for a company car account, where the individual automobiles are set up as projects.
• A single account for all company cars, even though a detailed statement per car is called for.
• Print a balance for a given department or project or for combinations of the two.
Commerce Gateway - Download from Partner Source

You can set up extended text so that an additional description is copied automatically onto sales or purchase documents when lines are entered. The description can also be made date-sensitive to allow for special messages for a specific period – for example, to communicate certain promotional offerings or certain warranty conditions. You can also specify extended text for various languages.
Intrastat - Starter Pack
Automatically retrieve the necessary data to report Intrastat information to statistics authorities. Local customs authorities can inform you whether your company is obligated to file such a report.

Multiple Currencies - Starter Pack
Manage multiple currencies throughout the system, including payables and receivables, general ledger reports, resource and inventory items, and bank accounts (when integrated with the Cash Management granules).
With Multiple Currencies, you can:
• Enter exchange rates and convert currency in full compliance with euro legislation (including “triangulation”) in the European Monetary Union (EMU) countries. Triangulation is the required method of currency conversion during the transitional period of the euro.
• Perform currency conversion according to exchange rates that are stored and maintained in the exchange rate table.
• Set up a currency in the exchange rate table and specify the format so that amounts will always be shown in the correct format on all forms and reports throughout the system.
• Enter exchange rates for a date or for a period in the exchange rate table.
• Calculate the exchange rate associated with the date on the transaction for each conversion of a currency amount to a local amount.
• Save historical exchange rates in the exchange rate table to keep track of fluctuations over a period of time.
• Transact business in any number of currencies for any customer and vendor. For example, companies can issue an invoice in one currency and accept payment for that invoice in a different currency.
• Manage currency conversion dynamically and help ensure efficient processing of exchange rate updates.
• Store details of transactions involving receivables and payables in local and foreign currencies so that aging and reports for receivables and payables can be printed in local or foreign currency.
• Use the Exchange Rate Adjustment option to adjust receivables and payables and post unrealized gains/losses to the general ledger.
At payment, gains/losses are realized, and corresponding postings are made in the general ledger. If you use an additional reporting currency in the general ledger, the Exchange Rate Adjustment option also adjusts the general ledger according to your setup for each general ledger account.
Per Database License (SQL Server) - Starter Pack
Per Database License is required when you want to run several databases on the same instance of SQL Server. Each database uses its own license file. In order to have more than one database using different license files, those license files must contain this granule. Without it, all databases on the server that do not use their own license files use one common license file.
Reason Codes - Starter Pack
Define a set of reason codes that can be assigned to individual transactions throughout the system. This provides additional user-defined audit trails that complement the information already provided by system assigned audit trails and posting descriptions. Define reason codes on journals as well as on sales and purchase headers. For example, use reason codes to mark all ledger entries made in connection with the closing of the fiscal year.
