In the original version of RapidStart Services, that was shipped with NAV 2013 R2, Microsoft was using the Table Information table to collect no. of records for each table.  This was very slow as soon as you added more companies to the database.  A coworker showed me this problem and I changed the functionality and sent a suggestion to Microsoft on how to change this.

And what do you know, they did exactly that.  In the Update Rollup 3 for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 this has been fixed.

I also sent them an error regarding a local formatted date formula.  And they fixed that to.

Good job Microsoft.

    They also fixed a problem with dates that crashed the Windows client. When you run a report with a data filter, then after it has saved the values, you then clear the date, the Windows (RTC) client immediately crashes. Rollup 3 platform update fixes that problem.
    Glad to hear they are using your recommendations.

    1. I would not bet my life on that Dave, they might just find the same solution by them selves… does not really matter if the issue is solved.
