Once Enhanced Notes has been installed, you need to start Microsoft Dynamics GP as an administrator as new code needs to be included:
Windows allows you to use commands as shortcuts in the Run prompt (such as calc to launch calculator). I typically use a lot of shortcuts to launch apps or open files I use a lot, but don;t want to drop a lot of shortcuts in any of the standard folders from which Windows allows shortcuts to be used.
Fortunately, you can add additional folders to use for shortcuts. To add a new folder, open the System window (Win+Pause|Break) and click on Advacned system settings< :
When you’ve download the software from the link on the free trial email, extract the files from the zip and run the Setup.msi:
Enhanced Notes is available for download from the GP Elementz website; as I am installing this on my demo company, I will register for a free trial:
In the last post, I took a look at what the Enhanced Notes module was. The table below shows the similarities and differences in the functionality offered by standard Microsoft Dynamics GP notes and the GP Elementz Enhanced Notes.
The Enhanced Notes module is a Dexterity customisation which is installed on every Microsoft Dynamics client which replaces the standard notes window in all areas of Dynamics GP.
Instead of a single notes page, Enhanced Notes allows discrete notes to be created:
ISC Software Solutions, the company I work for has, over time, developed a number of add-ons for Microsoft Dynamics GP. The first one of these add-ons I’m going to take a look at is the Enhanced Notes.
Over the course of this series, the index below will automatically update to show new posts as they go-live (unless you’re viewing this via a syndication feed, when you’ll need to check back to the original post).
I’m currently setting up a new laptop and re-creating all of the shortcuts I am used to having, which includes shortcuts not only for Outlook itself, but also for the types of items. For example, I want to use the Run window and type
Creating the shortcuts is straight forward, but you need to know the command line parameters:
Appointment: /c ipm.appointment Contact: /c ipm.contact Email: /c ipm.note Note: /c ipm.stickynote Task: /c ipm.task
I wish the email one was
note as I never remember it on first attempt.
I create a fair amount of T-SQL in the form of selects, views and stored procedures. While I try to format my code to make it easy to use, I do encounter code from other people which is not very well formatted; and if you look at the stored procedures or views which ship with Microsoft Dynamics GP, they are generally formatted with all of the code on a single line.
There are a variety of ways of formatting SQL and I’m sure there are addins for SQL Server Management Studio; however, I often work on clients servers and can’t just install anything I want.
Therefore, a web based alternative is favourite and SQLFormat is the best one I have come across so far.
To use, simple paste your code into the big box and click the Format SQL button:
You can even load a file should you wish.
I’m posting it here as a reminder to myself.
