MDGP 2018 RTM Feature of the Day: DocAttach Available on More Windows

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series Feature of the Day posts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM; as the most recent versions have been, these posts are in the form of PowerPoint slides; I am reposting them here so they can be read more easily.

The series index for this series of posts is here.

The first Feature of the Day is Document Attachment available on more windows.

Five additional windows now have Doc Attach available via a button on the action pane:

It is nice to see Fixed Assets getting some Doc Attach functionality; quite a few clients have documentation or images relating to their assets, so this offers a good way to keep these with the asset.

Technically, this series of Feature of the Day blogs posts contains multiple features in each post, but only because the same functionality has been introduced to mutliple windows, and in past series these would often have been posted as individual features, whereas in this series they are being combined.

SQL Script to Update Web Services Server in Workflow Setup When Copying Live To Test

Microsoft Dynamics GPAll clients will at some point copy their live company into a test one, whether or not the test system is on the same server or a different one. If on the same machine, they will usually use an automated process to perform the backup and restore.

There is usually other tasks which will need to be undertaken such as changing the output location of the EFT Payment Register Report or prefixing email message subjects with “TEST” or setting all email addresses to internal ones.

I’ve recently encountered a couple more fields which need to be reset to avoid problems when copying live to test. The one prompting this script, was when the live company was copied to the standalone test system, the Web Services server needed to be changed to a different value:

UPDATE WF00100
	SET
		Web_Service_Server = '{servername}'
WHERE

GO

The highlighted section, above, needs to be changed to your Web Services server.

In addition, a repair needed to be run using the Web Services Configuration Wizard, but at least the script removes one manual step.

As always with scripts, please make sure you have a good backup before using the script.
