Please Vote For MS Connect Suggestion – Management Reporter Default Page Setup

I realise this probably won’t interest the American readership, but I would appreciate it if you could vote for an MS Connect suggestion I have logged for Management Reporter.

In Management Reporter there is no way to change the default page setup except by editing each Report Definition.

This is an issue in the UK because the default page size here is A4 rather than Letter (as is common in the US). This means that every single new report created needs to be edited to have an A4 page size.

I think it would be incredibly useful if there was a global page setup which could be defined and would be the default for every single new report created in Management Reporter. Not only would it allow for a default page size, but also allow for a global default margin size or to choose between portrait and landscape as the default orientation.

If you think this suggestion is a good one, then please vote here and tell Microsoft how many people would benefit.

Mark Polino’s Weekly MS Connect Suggestion – Better Control of SmartList Visibility

Continuing Mark Polino’s weekly DynamicAccounting.net series of posts recommending an MS Connect suggestion.

This weeks is a vote on changing the default SmartList visibility option. This suggestion differs from the previous ones as it is one of Mark’s own suggestions that he has submitted to the MS Connect site.

I’ll admit I’ve tended not to stress to customers that any one of the options in the SmartList favourites window is any better than the others; I’ve tended to explain what they all do and left it at that. But thinking about it now, this is a bad approach as without guidance to any particular selection the average user will leave it at the default which is currently System. Mark’s suggestion would change this to User which would generally leave a tidier SmartList favourites list visible to the system.

Mark Polino’s Weekly MS Connect Suggestion – Multi-Company Support In One Database

Continuing Mark Polino’s weekly This weeks is a vote on adding support for multiple companies within one database. This is the first of mark’s suggestions to vote on that I’m slightly sceptical of.

Generally, a second company is dealt with in a separate database when it is a separate legal entity. If it’s not then it’s handled within the account framework (i.e. the first segment is defined as the company code); I can’t really envisage the technical approach that might be needed for a third way. Perhaps it’s just a failure of the imagination and someone can enlighten me.

Mark Polino’s Weekly MS Connect Suggestion – Auto Deposit of Cash Receipts in Bank

Continuing Mark Polino’s weekly DynamicAccounting.net series of posts recommending an MS Connect suggestion.

This weeks is a vote on adding an option to allow bank deposits to be automatically posted in Bank Reconciliation; this would be of great benefit if you’re receiving lots of individual payments hitting your bank account such as standing orders or BACS transfers which at present requires someone to post each one manually.

If you’d be interested in seeing this change made, please go to Connect and vote.

Mark Polino’s Weekly MS Connect Suggestion – Improve Intercompany

Continuing Mark Polino’s weekly DynamicAccounting.net series of posts recommending an MS Connect suggestion.

This weeks is a vote on improving intercompany transactions. While, as Mark points out, the suggestion is a little on the vague side, voting to imProve intercompany will focus Microsoft’s gaze upon the subject of intercompany support.

If you’d be interested in seeing this change made, please go to Connect and vote.

As an aside, I’m at square one house wise now but had my time taken up With a side project (details to be announced soon) but I now aim to get back posting with some regularity.
