I saw a video in youtube about RapidStart in NAV : www.youtube.com/watch
Is this functionality readily available in NAV ?
I am asking because we are using AX but saw RapidStart available as cloud-based only and I believe you need to pay to have that service.
Yes, it’s part of standard NAV and it#s available in the menu Departments/Administration/Application Setup/RapidStart Services for Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
You can also check this link that guides you through the creation of the package: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh179428(v=nav.71).aspx
And we basically had it since NAV 5.0 (1997 or was the first parts in 4.0?), although it has become much better since then.
