Connecting a custom field in AP Essentials (formerly ReadSoft Online) to a field in NAV
In order to have the custom fields to properly synchronize, you need to configure both AP Essentials (formerly ReadSoft Online) and NAV.
Set up the Custom field in AP Essentials (formerly ReadSoft Online)
Just add it like you normally add a custom field. In the Extraction settings navigate into the selected document type and create the custom field.
The NAV integration uses the AP Essentials (formerly ReadSoft Online) XML 2.0 so the new custom field will appear in the XML output, the same way it would if you were using any other target system using the 2.0, like the XML locally (2.0 - 20111014 XML format).
Connect the new Custom field in NAV

Make sure that the field name in the <name> tag corresponds with the name in NAV.
