Compare objects and versions

After creating a snapshot you can choose to perform several types of compares and by version:

  • Previous change vs. source

This compares your source object against its previous modification saved.

  • Versionlist version vs. source

This compares your source object against its first release in the former version saved, based on the version list.

  • Base snapshot vs. source

This compares your source object against its base object in the snapshot. A base object is the original object upon creation of the snapshot.

  • Standard vs. source

This compares your source object against Microsoft’s standard NAV/BC object. This feature only applies for objects within the Microsoft standard range.

pros-and-cons

Track missing documentation

Source Control offers automatic quality control and smart tracking.

Occasionally it happens that a developer forgets to add documentation for objects they change during custom fixes, or forget to add the version number to the objects, they were working on.

Smart tracking provides you with instant monitoring about documentation specified per object.

Why Source Control is a great choice for your organization

Always have documentation about object changes available, which will also benefit your team.

Source Control's Interface

Modern browser layout with filters, a fast search and movable columns that allow you to quickly tailor your view and find what you are looking for.

The best interface design in mind

We always have the product design in mind and your personal experience with the interface, so it provides a simpified navigation. With Source Control you can collect the information you need about objects for a status update in just a few seconds.

Source Control connects to a snapshot, which is part of Object Analyzer. We suggest checking out the automation of cumulative updates and exploring the free Object History Search feature
