Using your own user fields in ShopFloor

As a customer you may need to add some company specific information to a scheduled production order operation line with the purpose of selecting a proper production family (delimiting all 5 mm raw material plate thickness orders) , sorting on color (from white to dark) etc.

An example from a dutch customer where a car position number and outsourced puchase order reference have been added:

Normally this function demands individual programming.

NAVEKSA has made this easy for you.

10 individual customer user fields have been made for your disposal

The fields can be named company specific names and filled in with specific (calculated) values. The display and content can then be added to the NAVEKSA SHOPFLOOR planning and execution screens.

The setup and display are controlled in Dynamics NAV / Dynamics 365 Business Central.

How to use Customer Fields

In order to show the customer fields in the ShopFloor client, go to Naveksa ->
Set up->ShopFloor – Set up. Click “ShopFloor field selection” and select the customer fields you want to appear in the ShopFloor client. (They will already be visible as columns, if you run the ShopFloor client, but without data).

In order to put data in the fields, now add a reference to the code unit that has to handle it. Do this by opening the table 6170498 Customer code reference in Dynamics NAV / Dynamics 365 Business Central Development Environment.

Here please enter object ID 6170476, which is the table for the ShopFloor lines, and in the last column, enter the ID of your code unit. The rest has to remain with the standard values.

Let the code unit use table 6170476 SHOPFLOOR Line.

In your code unit, create the desired code that enters values in the required columns.

In order to change the field description line of the customer field, open Naveksa -> Setup-> SHOPFLOOR>Naveksa Field selection, find the relevant captions and provide them with new field descriptions lines

Do the same for the planning screen.
