Features in NAV 2017 CU 7

In Office 365 experience –  You can navigate effortlessly between your Microsoft Dynamics NAV data and your office tools – for example, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Bookings, or Microsoft Excel.

Embedded Power BI – Continuing the powerful integration, you can now use embedded Power BI to easily create insightful charts and reports, and then make them available within your Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 role center.

Setup and configuration – Getup and running faster. Save time & avoid unnecessary manual tasks with the assisted setup wizard that helps you import data, setup integration with Office 365, and enjoy a simplified setup experience, with predefined setup data and limited customer interaction.

User Experience – You can accomplish even more in your browser-based interface. For example, switch views to see and identify your list of records, including seeing picture thumbnails in different sizes, and use wizards to learn new concepts or simplify data entry.

Finance – Work with ready-to-use financial statements  and gain accessible insights into the financial performance of your business. The new  default Account Schedules means that no setup is required, making it quick to produce financial reports that you need, and point in time reporting means you can view the financial state of your business for any given time.
