With this solution sending a Fax or E-Mail in Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a breeze. You no longer need to specify a Printer, Address, Fax number or Filename in a Report.

Just activate SendX and Print, that's all...




  • Activate SendX and Print

  • 2.

  • Select an option

  • 3.

  • After printing the Sales – Invoice with No. 103015, click on the Send button

  • Information
    PDF or Fax-software like eDocPrinter, Zetafax, GFI FAXmaker, Pdfmailer and Faxware have the option of looking for embedded commands in a print job.

    SendX uses this functionality to embed commands like Fax number, Email address, etc. into the header of the document.

    Developers can extend reports with just a few lines of code. This way you can do batch-reporting, select a coverpage, add company logo, change the subject, filename, add bodylines or end a document. It all depends on your chosen PDF or Fax package.

    Sometimes the email address is too short?
    The headers in Navision documents are not all the same. We use the last 2 lines and for a long email address you need to extend the field on the section page. Look in the support forum for examples.
