Microsoft Dynamics NAV contains business areas. You can control how the license file controls the access that you have to these business areas and the functionality that they contain.
Business Areas and Granules
The standard Microsoft Dynamics NAV application is divided into several business areas. Each business area consists of a number of functional areas. These functional areas contain functionality; however different customers might only need some of the functionality that is provided. To facilitate this, a Microsoft Dynamics NAV license file contains a number of granules. Each granule represents a small area of functionality.
This system makes it possible for each customer to purchase a license that only gives the company and the company's employees access to exactly the functionality needed.
