The Push to Extensions 2.0: What It Means for You!

One of the biggest cost drivers for Partners and their customers, since the introduction of add-ons in the mid-1990’s, has been the cost of managing and upgrading these add-ons in customer solutions to keep up with Microsoft’s numerous releases. This has become an even greater issue with the release of the newest version of Dynamics 365 (NAV / AX). 

Mitigating the Limitations of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Upgrades (Beyond Standard Upgrade Tools)

Historically, Microsoft NAV Upgrades have been painful and time-consuming projects.  It is not surprising many Microsoft Dynamics NAV Partners preferred to perform new Dynamics NAV installation projects over existing Dynamics NAV upgrade projects.

The dawn of the new Microsoft Dynamic NAV upgrade tools has spelled relief for many Partners upgrading solutions from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 and later versions. The introduction of these new tools, like Powershell, has allowed major upgrade obstacles to be removed and in some cases even automated.

Conquering the Peculiarities of Dynamics NAV Extensions

When Dynamics NAV 2016 was launched, Extensions were introduced as the new way to build Add-Ons. At that time, Extensions had too many restrictions, so developers were playing around with them, but only the brave actually started developing real Extensions implementations.

With NAV 2017, the number of restrictions have significantly decreased. Now the Extensions Marketplace (App Source) is growing at a rapid pace.

Following 1ClickFactory‘s vision, all companies will someday run on the latest version(s) of their software(s), 1ClickFactory‘s NAV developers commenced several Extension development projects to make it easier to upgrade Add-Ons.  Through this work, a couple of peculiarities surfaced that you may want to make note of for your own Extensions development.
