Implementing Enhanced Notes: Conclusion

GP Elementz Enhanced NotesThis post is part of a series on Implementing Enhanced Notes from ISC Software Solutions.

Over the last few posts, I’ve been taking a look at the Enhanced Notes Microsoft Dynamics GP add-on from ISC Software. This module replaces the standard Notes one and gives the ability to record discrete notes against any record or window.

I realise I’m not the impartial voice on providing a review of this product, as I work for ISC Software.

However, I do like Enhanced Notes and I think a few of the clients I’ve worked with in the past would love it. The abilityt o record discrete user/date/time stamped notes is a really good one. A number of clients use the standard notes, manualy adding user, date and time to the comments with the newest a the top, but this gives you a potentially vcery long monolithic notes record.

It’s an easy add-on to install and configure and, with a free trial, there is no cost to giving the module a try in the Fabrikam sample company database, other than time.

azurecurve ClassicPress Plugins: Conditional Links

ClassicPress PluginsThis is part of the azurecurve ClassicPress Plugins which introduces the plugins I have available for ClassicPress.

Functionality

This plugin allows use of the cpl (conditional-links#download page link cbl (conditional blog link) shortcode with a slug parameter to link to a page whether it exists or not; the content between the opening and closing shortcode tags will be the text visible to visitors. If the page exists it will be linked, otherwise standard unlinked text will be displayed.

This allows you to publish pages while the site is being build without having broken links, but as soon as the page, or post, is published, the link will immediately be present and working without the need to go back and edit a page).

Download

The plugin can be downloaded via my Development site.

Changing Themes in Notepad++

Notepad++I’ve Started using Dark Modes on lots of applications and websites, when available (such as on Outlook.com and here on azurecurve|Ramblings of a Dynamics GP Consultant. One of the applications I wanted to do this on was Notepad++, but I struggled to find the themes section to make the change.

The problem was that I suffered from a bit of tunnel vision when looking for the option. I was looking for themes, when I should have been looking for styles; specifically the Style Configurator:

Implementing Enhanced Notes: Using Enhanced Notes

Once Enhanced Notes has been installed and configured, it replaces the Dynamics GP Notes window everywhere it appears on both records and windows. The notes icon will still appear as white when there is no note, or yellow when there is.

If, for example, you open the Notes window for a customer, you’ll see the ,em>Enhanced Notes window:
