Lesson 1: Prerequisite Knowledge in Role Tailoring

Prerequisite Knowledge

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 supports more than 20 default roles with a default installation. Those roles combine the functionality of the application areas that are available in the standard application. Prerequisite Knowledge in Role Tailoring When you create new application areas or customize existing ones, you may have to provide new Role Centers for any user roles that are not included in the default set. Or you may have to integrate any new pages into relevant existing Role Centers to give users access to frequently used features.

A Role Center is a composite page that consists of the following:

  • Other pages, such as activities and lists
  • System parts, such as notifications or Outlook
  • Definitions of the actions in the ribbon
  • Definition of the navigation pane and its contents

RoleTailored User Interface Overview

Prerequisite Knowledge in Role Tailoring : The RoleTailored user interface design gives users a quick overview of the information that is relevant to their job. This design paradigm enables users to do the following:

  • Focus, prioritize, and apply their expertise quickly and efficiently.
  • Visualize and understand key data.
  • Reduce the time that is spent searching for functionality and data.

Research shows that the greatest challenges to users are frequent interruptions and balancing multiple concurrent tasks. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 helps resolve this issue with a RoleTailored design that is combined with a familiar and easy-to-use interface. Instead of mapping to the structure of the database, the RoleTailored user interface maps to the tasks that a role must perform. This rolebased navigation reduces complexity by promoting areas of the application that are relevant to each role. Role-based navigation reduces the information that users must understand. It does this by removing application areas that users rarely access. C/Side Solution in NAV

Role Center

The Role Center links users to the processes in which they participate. By exposing the most frequently used functions in a single location, a Role Center serves as the entry point for every user. It enables users to focus on their tasks, without spending unnecessary time locating features in the user interface.The Order Processor Role Center is a typical example of a Role Center. It provides salespeople with quick access to different types of sales documents and allows them to easily access and manage important information, such as customers, items, or notifications.
