Run Dynamics NAV as Different User
A question that I receive frequently is; ‘how do I run Dynamics NAV as a different user?’. A basic question it seems, but not everybody is aware of how it can be done.
It could for example be that you are testing permissions and you want to run one client with SUPER user access to do the permission setup and another client with limited access to test the setup at the same time. Another common scenario is that you want to debug something on a users computer and for this you need your own log-in to have full permission and access to the debugger.
Luckily it is quite easy to run Dynamics NAV as a different user without logging out of windows, here is how to do it:
Right click on the Dynamics NAV icon and select Run as Different User.
If the option does not show up when you right click, try to hold down the SHIFT key while right clicking.
Then you simply sign in with the different user through the dialog that appears and that’s it!
Now you can run two clients on the same computer logged in as two different users.
Nice, easy and very useful! 🙂
