To install the first client, the first step is to download SmartFill; navigate to the Rockton Software downloads page. In the Product field, select SmartFill and in the Versions field select Microsoft Dynamics GP Version 2018.

Mark the checkbox next to the Product and hit the Download Selected button:

Implementing Rockton’s SmartFill: What Is SmartFill

Rockton SoftwareThis post is part of a series of posts on Implementing Rockton’s SmartFill.

Before starting the installation, I thought it might be useful to do a post, covering what functionality SmartFill contains.

Simply put, SmartFill allows you to perform a more flexible lookup than the standard ones in Microsoft Dynamics GP. For example, you can type only a few characters of an Item Number or Item Description and a list of data matching will be returned; the search performed is a begins with or contains (depending on configuration) which makes it easy to find the required data.

By default SmartFill ships with a large number of default searches, but can be customised to add more or change the default ones; and can also be configured to to be available to 3rd party modules.

Rockton SoftwareI periodically take a look at different offering from ISVs, of which there are many. One that I’ve looked at recently is SmartFill from Rockton Software.

I figured a small series on implementing it might be useful as I step through the process myself. Over the new few posts, I’ll be installing and configuring SmartFill.

GP Table Reference Updated for GP 2018 plus First ISV Products Added

GP Table ReferenceI have now fully updated the azurecurve|GP Table Reference for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM as well as adding the first few ISV products

A total of six new products have been added during the latest update.

Standard modules added are (I’m not entirely sure why these hadn;t already been added, but assume it is to do with them being more focused to the UK market; certainly DDR is):

  1. Direct Debits & Refunds (8811)
  2. Scheduled Installments (1150)

The added ISV products are:

  1. Advanced Bank Reconciliation (2440) from Nolan Business Solutions
  2. Extender (3107) from eOne Solutions
  3. MIS-AMS Extensions (3459) which is now maintained by Perfect Image, but not generally commercially available.
  4. SmartList Builder (3830) from eOne Solutions

I am going to be adding additional ISV products to the site as well, look for lighter tiles ; if you work for an ISV, or use ISV products, and want the tables added to the GP Table Reference, please get in touch with details of what you want adding.

The Mekorma products are currently on my list of the next ISV products to be added.
