In Microsoft Dynamics Navision, you can create Menusuites that contain menu content which is displayed in Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows Client.  The MenuSuite that is provided in Microsoft Dynamics NAVISION is a generic MenuSuite that can be modified. You can also create a new MenuSuite from the basic MenuSuite. Each menu in the basic MenuSuite represents a department such as Financial Management, Human Resources, and Manufacturing. Each department contains menu items that are specific for that department area. A department menu contains menu items that can link to the Codeunits,Pages,Queries,Reports,Tables,XMLports.

The links to these objects are displayed on the department page in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client. When the link is selected in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client, the object that it links to is run. MenuSuites are designed in Navigation Pane Designer but they are run in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client.

A menu links to a department and a menu item links to a specific object in department. You can create a group that contains related menu items. When you design menu items and groups in Navigation Pane Designer, you can organize them to display on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client by department or by category. Menu items are displayed as links that users can use to open objects such as reports and pages.
