Numerous other fields are displayed or are available in the background. All fields from the confirmation files are read in and are thus available for further processing in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
The most essential information is however the Statusinformation, i.e. whether the order could also be successfully executed. The confirmation card offers the possibility the documents from the data base and/or due to the FILELIST data to indicate. It is also possible to import/delete the documents afterwards. A further useful feature is the reactivation from the feedback map.
Advantage of the data base storage is that the data can be indicated always, an access to the path mentioned is not necessary in contrast to the variant without data base storage. In both cases there is quasi an archive of the documents from the job list.
The Connector NAV feedback card
The confirmation card provides a detailed overview of each confirmation of an operation. For e-mail and fax interfaces with a confirmation (OfficeMaster, Twinfax, Faxmaker), the Confirmation tab reads and displays this file.
Actions in the feedback card
Using the filelist functions, you can display the job file (FILELIST), body text file (FILELIST 2) or attachments 1-4 (FILELIST 3-6) for each response.
Using the document functions you can import, export or delete the above mentioned files.
