How much time are your users spending in NAV?

If you are an NAV admin, you are most likely familiar with the NAV Change Log. You can specify which tables and fields to track, and the types of changes – Insertion, Modification, Deletion – that are to be logged.

But did you know that you can also track how much time your users spend in NAV each day? This allows you to see how much time in minutes is spent working in each company in NAV, and which users have worked in or accessed which companies in a period.

Enabling and using this audit feature is quite simple and you can be up and running in as little as a minute or two:

  1. On the General Ledger Setup Page or Form, place a check mark in the Register Time field (you can find this on the General Fast Tab; see screenshot above).
  2. If you have listed any User IDs on the User Setup Page or Form, ensure that the Register Time field is checked for all users whose time in NAV needs to be tracked.
  3. If you do not have any User IDs listed on the User Setup Page or Form, you can ignore Step 2.
  4. View logged time for the Company by user by date from the Time Registers Page as needed.

To access the User Setup and Time Registers pages in the RoleTailored Client, navigate to: Departments > Administration > Application Setup > Users.

The NAV 2009 RTC screenshot on the right shows the time registered for user AANSARI in minutes by date.

If you are using the Classic Client, the User Setup form is found under Administration > Application Setup > Users, while the Time Registers form is found under Administration > IT Administration > Users.

Important Note: You will need to repeat Steps 1 and 2 for each company you have in NAV.

Happy Monday!
