Webinar Recording | Q&A
Thank you for attending our webinar: Automated Tools That Will Change Your Upgrade to Extensions Process.
During the live webinar, the following topics have been explored:
1. SIMPLANOVA UPGRADE TO EVENTS TOOL
Automate the NAV solution code upgrade to events with Simplanova Upgrade to Events tool.
Upgrade to Events tool:
-Analyzes C/AL code;
-Creates subscriber codeunits, moves page and table trigger modifications to them;
-Clears standard object modifications;
-Adds comment to code lines which cannot be moved to an event.
2. SIMPLANOVA REPORT CONVERTER
Stop rebuilding C/SIDE reports manually – you can now automate their conversion to Extensions. There is a process now on automating old C/SIDE report conversion to extensions which does not require any yearly license fees!
The tool is not upgrading from one version to another, it is created for code moving to events. Basically, you are moving your customizations outside the standard NAV/ Business Central. For example, this helps while moving to extensions because you need less work with separating your customizations from the standard ones.
If you are talking about the report layouts, unfortunately, the answer right now is no. This tool is supporting Classic to RDLC and RDLC to RDLC (only for C/AL to AL) conversion.
If it works with the classic and if it’s not generated with some hardcore custom libraries, then the tool supports Barcodes as well.
The answer is no. We can do this conversion for you, so you don’t need to do that by yourself.
Currently, no. Our tool does not support TransHeaders/TransFooters, so you need to do these adjustments manually. These functionalities are not supported on the newer versions of Business Central, it’s supported only on the classic version, so this is one of the reasons why we didn’t implement this functionality with our tool.
Just simply contact [email protected], and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Yes, we can with Visual Studio.
First of all, it’s gonna take for us approximately 5 business days to do the estimation. It’s difficult to answer how much time the project itself will take because without having the numbers after estimation, it’s difficult to tell. It depends on the complexity of the reports, our team workload, and resources as well. Each case will be different. And if you are going to buy points, you can do that immediately by yourself.
If you are talking about the tool, of course, we will provide you with access to our support portal, where you can log all the issues and our guys will definitely help you with that. Actually, this is the way how we are developing the tool itself. We are doing releases a few times a year, and we are adding new functionalities or fixing bugs according to your experience.
Usually, we are trying to work according to the client’s needs. If it is an urgent matter, we can help you as well. The main rule is that we answer within 5 business hours according to our work schedule.
It migrates objects to AL, but you need to fix breaking changes by yourself.
