Power BI reporting

New Power BI reporting control, you can gain access to Power BI reports by making them visible from within the most highly-used lists in Dynamics NAV.  Not only are you able to view Power BI reports you select, but there is also an option to interact and filter the reports by selecting records from the associated list page.

Migration from QuickBooks

A great starting point for QuickBook migration, you can import payroll transaction files in QuickBook IIF format by installing QuickBook Payroll File Import extension. Aggregated payroll data, including date, payroll account, description, and amount, will be imported to your G/L accounts according to mappings that you perform once per payroll account. Hope to have more import options in future for document (order/invoice) migration.
