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.

Implementing Enhanced Notes: Using Enhanced Notes

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

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:

Enhanced Notes window

In this window, I have entered a note as well as selecting a category and subcategory; I am not emailing this or creating a task; I could use the paperclip icon to attach a PDF of the email if required.

Implementing Enhanced Notes: Configure Security

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

When Enhanced Notes is deployed to a company, there are two security roles created:

  1. ENHANCED NOTES – which gives users access ton the Enhanced Notes instead of the standard Dynamics GP Notes window.
  2. ENHANCED NOTES SETUP – which allows users to change the configuration of the Enhanced Notes module.

All non-POWERUSER* users are automatically assigned the Enhanced Notes security role when it is installed, but future users will need to be assigned it via User Security Setup [gpmenu]Adminstration » Setup » System » User Security[/gpmenu]:

User Security Setup

Any user other than a POWERUSER* will need to be assigned the Enhanced Notes Setup role.
