There are underutilized features in every software out there, but Microsoft Dynamics has one feature – Saved Views – that I show to people again and again. This incredible time-saver has actually been around since
Your first step is to go to the list view and do what you normally do – filter the list with all the filters you normally choose to see just the information you need to see. This should be the last time you do this!
Now, choose the drop-down next to the name of your list view – in this case, Customers. You’ll see there is an option there – Save View As.
You can now give this Saved View a name, whatever you’d like to call it, and you can place it either on the Home portion of the Navigation Pane, or any other area of the Navigation Pane. I like to save the views I use frequently under a navigation button I’ve created called My Favorites. Once you choose OK, you’ll need to allow BC/NAV to restart briefly to pick up the new saved view.
Take a look at the My Favorites button on the Navigation Pane to find your newly Saved List. With just a single click, you’ll get to your frequently used report every time, saving yourself many clicks each day.
If you ever forget where you put a Saved View and you can remember even part of the name, BC/NAV even allows you to use the Search function to look for the view you created so you can get to where you put it quickly and easily.
