NAV2017 Notifications Part 1: Create a simple notification

With NAV 2017 we got the all new notification data type, let’s seeĀ how we can create a very simple notification and send it to the user.
So let’s say we want to send a notification to the user when he leaves the item description empty or when he empties the item description, sounds easy right?

In this case I’ve created one function which is called from the two EventSubscribers called SendOrRecallDescriptionNotification.
This function will either send the notification to the user or recall it if the Description is filled in, in the meantime.

Notifications always need a unique Id, in this case a Guid, we obviously create this Guid with the PowerShell New-Guid Cmdlet!
If you don’t provide the Notification with an ID you will en up with something like this šŸ™‚

In part 2 I’ll explain how to register our new notification in table 1518 and if we want to give the user the ability to apply extra conditionsĀ on the visibility of the notification.
