Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 - Thoughts on ApplicationArea Property.

Hi Readers,

Today I would like to discuss ApplicationArea Property with NAV 2017 and Dynamics 365.

As per my understanding (which can be wrong) this is a feature which is built in for Dynamics 365 but it does not make sense for Dynamics NAV.

With that I feel that - When we look a new feature in the product starting 2017! we need to think about it use not only for NAV but also in perspective of Dynamics 365!

The new enhancement available can be a feature of Dynamics 365 but it's of no use in Dynamics NAV.
