Adding Links to a Record

With Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016, you can link to a file (such as file name types doc, tif, or jpg), folder, or website. For example, you may want to link an invoice to a sales quote. This gives you the flexibility to access relevant information quickly.

  3. Click Actions, and then click New.
