Is there a way to create a MenuSuite per Company in NAV 4.0?
You know in the good old day (before NAV 4.0) you could create a menu per company (yes even per users). I don’t seam to have this option in NAV 4.0, And I don’t think that the Design Level “Company” works per company!
Well I haven’t found a way yet, but I hope there is a way…
Here are some posts I’ve seen…
As and end user I haven’t found an easy way to do. But as a developer you may be able to.
My idea would be to create a new menu based on the add-on number range for each company.
then setup a premission group that resticts the base menues and give premission for the new add-on menu.
assign users from different companies the premissions.
if a user doesn’t have premissions for an object Navision hides it from them, that is what will keep the default menus from showup for a company.
unfortunately there isn’t a way to hide menus based on companies.
Maybe there is one way you can do it, but I don’t if it’s possible. The data for menu is setup in user menu table as blob. You could create another table that will have company as pk and have a version for every company.
On open company you could replace the user menu level with the company specify one.
The data is in blob field.
I would really like to know the threads you found this in. I tried to seach for this and the only thing I get is your reply here…
Mark’s comment looks interesting, but I don’t quite understand what he means…
I’ve read them on mibuso - search for “menu & company” or “suite & company”
These guys are member here too - so i’d figure they can see the post & elaborate plus get some other suggestions from the dynamics users
I know, that’s why I didn’t even consider searching there…
There is a system table 2000000061 User Menu Level. By default it is DataPerCompany NO.
You can set this to YES and have a different menu per company.
Excellent answer! Thank you. I will try that! [:D]
