Implementing SmartConnect: Configure GP Connector

eOne SolutionsThis post is part of the series on Implementing SmartConnect, an integration tool from eOne Solutions, which can take data from any source and integrate it into Microsoft Dynamics GP (and other systems such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM or Sales Force amongst others). It has a drag and drop interface to make creating integrations quick and easy for all users rather than just developers (as many integration tools target).

The next step in implementing SmartConnect is to configure the connector with Microsoft Dynamics GP; do this by clicking on the Setup tab and then on the Setup button on the action pane:
