New Extension Videos for NAV2016

NAV Extensions – Updated Generic Data Migration Options

OK, it’s official. I feel like an idiot :-). I was so proud with my previous blogpost as I was able to solve a somewhat complicated problem generically. And now there appears to be a platform solution for what I was trying to solve (or at least for a big part of it). I remember …
