Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 saw the introduction of the Purchasing All-In-One Document View, and Dynamics GP 2016 R1 sees the introduction of an Inventory equivalent:
The main features of Inventory All-In-One Document View are:
- View quantity in and quantity out transactions for one item in one window
- Accessible from Item Maintenance, many item inquiry windows, navigation lists and the home page
As with the Sales All-In-One Document View I am prepared to be underwhelmed by this feature of the day based on the Purchasing one introduced in Dynamics GP 2015 R2.
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 saw the introduction of the Purchasing All-In-One Document View, and Dynamics GP 2016 R1 sees the introduction of a Sales equivalent:
The main features of Sales All-In-One Document View are:
- View all related sales documents for a single transaction in one window
- Accessible from Customer Maintenance, many sales inquiry windows, navigation lists and the home page
When I heard of the Purchasing version of this in 2015 R2 I was looking forward to it, but found the reality to be a little underwhelming as the window isn’ the friendliest around and is a little clunky. The screenshot above shows that the Sales All-In-One Document View is very similar to the purchasing one so fear I will find this equally clunky.
One of the major new features in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1 is the HTML5 web client; this replaces the Silverlight web client released in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2. One of the enhancements to the web client is the ability to search for a window or report:
The main features of web client search are:
- Ability to search for a window or report within the GP web client
- Shows a list of all open windows and reports based on search criteria
- Shows a list of all windows and reports and the navigation based on search criteria
- Ability to close all open windows at once.
This is going to be a little like the Where’s that window? function on Jivtesh Singh’s GPWindow site, but will also allow you to search for reports as well. This should prove especially useful to new users of Microsoft Dynamics GP, although with Microsoft’s record for problems with non-US English I will want to see it working with the UK English language packed version of GP before I give it a ringing endorsement.
