The Dynamics User Group has always been known for our many forums where you always can find the right answer, or ask it, if it has not already been asked. And if we go back just 2-3 years, then almost everything was about Navision. Now most new questions asked are about Axapta - Dynamics AX. But NAV is still the most active, as many users doesn’t actually ask new questions, but only read old replies.
Here on Dynamics Users we always had our forums divided into many different sub-forums, allowing users to subscribe just to questions/answers in that particular forum. But the many forums also makes it harder for new members to find out exactly where to post, with the result that we then have to move the post to the right forum.
So I want to simplify this. Currently there are 12 different NAV specific forums. In the future there will be
End-User Questions - Forum for end-user questions, how to invoice, how to print a report, how to do a bank reconciliation etc.
Developer Questions - Forum for developer questions. Everything regarding programming and development.
Technical Questions - Forum for technical questions, ex. about installation, configuration, backup and restore, security, servers etc.
Training-Certification - Forom for questions about Exams, Certifications, Training, the different Training Materials and Course ware.
For NAV we also have a Beginners Forum.This is basically just a place we created some years back to “filter” new members questions from all the current questions to prevent the members to ask the same question again and again. The members shouldn’t be shy about asking something which most likely is very simple for more experienced users.
Before doing any changes here, then I would like to hear your comments about this forum. Is it good? Could we do without it? And if it’s good, do we need a similar forum for Dynamics AX?
When doing these changes then initially the forums will continue to exists, but as “sub forums”. Example: NAV SQL Server forum will be under the NAV Technical Forum. Warehousing will be under End-user questions, etc. For smaller forums the posts will just be moved to the new forum (sorry - this might give you an update notification by mail - if you have subscribed to the post or forum).
