How to place the Actions in the pages to new category (NAV 2009)

Instead of placing the actions in the standard categories like New, Process and Report, you can also place your action to your own categories.
The following steps will show the process with an example:

In the object designer, design the page 30 Item Card.

Move to the last blank line in the page.

Go to the Actions using ViewàActions.

Go to the properties of the Action you want to move to the new Category.

Change the following properties:
    • Promoted to Yes
    • PromotedCategory to Category4. Category 4 to 10 are available in the NAV 2009 SP1, other than the standard categories like New, Report and Report.
    • PromotedIsBig to Yes
Go to the Page properties and change the PromotedActionCategoriesML property value like below:
          ENU=New,Process,Report,New Category
First three values should be same like New, Process, Report and from there you can give your own name. If you change these values standard page Categories will be changed.

Run the page in RTC and see the result. You will find a new Category with "New Category" which has your action.
