The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series Feature of the Day posts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 on which I am following and adding commentary. The series index for this series of posts is here.

Since navigation lists were introduced in Dynamics GP 10, they have grown increasingly common in usage, in particular new clients; there are some navigation lists which rarely see use, but ones for master records and transactions seem to be used a lot.
