NAV 2017 – What’s new in the Administration Console

I think its time for sharing some findings now where I have been playing around with NAV 2017 for a day or two.

Lets start with taking a look on the changes in the Administration Console.

On the first view you notice three new tabs:

  • Azure Active Directory (Azure AD)
  • Task Scheduler
