How to: Add a FactBox on a Page Using the Wizard

Microsoft Dynamics Nav 2009

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2, you can use the Page Wizard to add a FactBox to a new page. A FactBox is an area that is located on the right side of a page, and you can use FactBoxes to display other pages, charts, or system parts.

Shows FactBox on a Sales Order

You typically use a FactBox to display information that is related to an item on the main content page. For example, on a page that shows a sales order list, you can use a FactBox to show customer details for a selected sales order in the list.

A FactBox is divided into one or more parts that are arranged vertically. Each part can contain one of the following objects:

  • Page of the CardPart or ListPart type.

  • Chart.

  • System part, including Microsoft Outlook, Notes, MyNotes, or RecordLinks.

Using the wizard, you can add a FactBox on the following page types:

  • Card

  • Document

  • List

  • ListPlus

  • Navigate

  • Worksheet
