How to Search for Any Page, Report, or View in NAV

Many times a user may not know exactly where in the NAV application a specific Report, Page or View is located.

On the top right corner of the NAV Home Page, the ‘Search’ Functionality can be located.

In our example, we are going to search for any Report with the word ‘Aged’ contained in it.

When you start typing characters in the Search field, a drop-down list shows page names containing the character(s) you type. The drop-down list changes as you type more characters, and you can select the correct page from the list when it is displayed. The second column in the drop-down list shows the navigation paths to the found pages and can be used to navigate to the Departments page when the page exists.

In our example, three reports were located with the word “Aged”. I can then highlight the report that I wish to navigate to and click and the system will automatically open the report for me.
