This post is part of the Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 New Features series in which I am going hands on with the new features introduced in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 (which was released on the 2nd October). I reblogged the new features as Microsoft announced them along with some commentary of how I thought they would be received by both my clients and I. In this series, I will be hands on with them giving feedback of how well they work in reality.
The seventeenth new feature is SmartList Designer Favourites in Navigation List. This feature will see favourites created for SmartList Designer SmartList objects added to the SmartList Favorites navigation list.
As an example, I have created a Vendor EFT SmartList object in SmartList Designer and saved a couple of favourites:

I don’t tend to use this navigation list, and I’m not sure any of my clients do. I also have more clients actively using SmartList Builder than SmartList Designer, so I’m not sure how useful they’ll find this.
