Important changes in Microsoft License Terms for Dynamics NAV 2016
From NAV 2016, companies that use the Continia Web Approval Portal can get full access to all features in the web approval proces with a NAV Limited User.
Before 2016, NAV Users configured as Limited Users could acces purchase documents at the Continia Web Approval Portal. Certain functions were, however, disabled, such as the ability to fully approve a purchase invoice or to edit purchase document lines, which therefore required a Full User. As of 2016, Microsoft has changed the License Terms meaning that all features are now available for web approvers configured as NAV Limited Users.
The general License Terms for Microsoft Dynamics NAV are as follows;
- Till NAV 2009: One NAV DCO license per user (Microsoft Dynamics Client for Office).
- From 2013 – 2015: In accordance with the Microsoft License Terms, a web approver requires a NAV User from the moment the web approver logs in on the Continia Web Approval Portal and gets direct access to the NAV database, and when the web approver logs out, the NAV User is released again. If the web approver is configured as a Full User, all features are available on the web portal when approving a purchase document. If the web approver is configured as a Limited User, the functions to approve, reject, put on hold, forward and add comments to a purchase document are available on the web portal. The ability to edit purchase document lines is then disabled.
- From 2016: In accordance with new License Terms for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016, now all features are available for user configured as a NAV Limited User.
The above information is indicative. In accordance with the general License Terms for Microsoft Dynamics NAV, it’s your responsibility to keep up to date with, and adhere to, the policies posted by Microsoft.
