You can display pages in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV SharePoint client by using a Uniform Resource Locator (URL). You can type the URL directly in the address of a web browser or use it to link to the page from another SharePoint page. The following procedure explains how to add a link in Quick Launch on the SharePoint site that opens page 951, Time Sheet List, for the CRONUS International Ltd. demonstration database. The Quick Launch menu is in the leftmost navigational area of pages on a Microsoft SharePoint website.
To create a URL, you must provide the name of the computer that is running Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Server or Microsoft SharePoint Server and the port on which the SharePoint application of the site is running on. For this example, the SharePoint server is named MyServer and the SharePoint application is running on port number 1234.
For more information about how to create URLs to display pages, see Displaying Pages in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV SharePoint Client by Using URLs.
