In this series, I will be using the full installation download as I will be doing a fresh install.
I’ve updated it now for the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2002 Release, based on the system requirements documents.
The page is accessible from the GP Resources menu along with a number of other pages or external links containing useful information on Microsoft Dynamics GP.
There are not many changes to the system requirements for the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Release are not much, if any, different from the prior release; the system requirements for Dynamics GP and the Web Components can be viewed at the following links:
- System Requirements for Microsoft Dynamics GP
- System Requirements for Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Components
This does mean that if you are on any version of Dynamics GP 2018 or on the 2019 Release, you will need to apply the 2020 Release update; a fix for Dynamics GP 2016 will also be released, but the method of approach is still being determined.
If you’re doing an upgrade, there is also an upgrade blog series which runs through the important issues to consider when doing an upgrade.
Microsoft have done this release differently to previous releases, as the new feature blog series has only just started, whereas it was previously published in advance of the product release.
I will do my usual series of blog posts over the coming weeks on installing the new version as well as running through all of the new features.
The following PowerShell command will export a list of folders and sub-folders from the specified location (the first highlighted section is the starting folder and the second the output path for the CS file):
Get-ChildItem -Path \\nas3\public\movies -Recurse -Directory -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Select-Object FullName | Export-CSV c:\temp\export.txt
To remove an animation, select the Animations tab and then select element with animations; the Animation section of the action pane will show the type of animation currently selected; click None to remove the animation:
This particular setting does exist and is in what is an obvious place (or at least obvious when you know where it is); do disable sounds on notifications globally, open the Notifications and settings app (the shortcut ms-settings:notifications can be used to open it quickly) and unmark the Allow notifications to play sounds):
I have an article on the settings shortcuts.
Before I give a brief overview of each of the add-ons, a quick introduction. Microsoft Dynamics GP is a full-featured ERP system with many modules, but one of the original founding design decisions was to support the enhancement by way of third party add-on modules, which closely integrate into the software and in many cases are indistinguishable from the core module. These add-ons are available from many, many vendors around the world (although many of them are located near the birth-place of the software in Fargo, North Dakota).
Each consultant will usually have a list of go-to add-ons which they’ve recommended to a number of clients, and this list is derived from these lists from each of the consultants (there was a lot of overlap between us). This is not to say that there are not other great, competing, add-ons; there are but we had to limit the list to six in order to cover them in a thirty minute webinar.
Smartist Builder is the add-on with which I have the most and longest experience. Created by eOne Solutions, it allows for the creation of new SmartList objects to meet needs not covered by the out-of-the-box SmartList objects; this often covers reports such as vendors with email and EFT details or Payables Distributions. It also supports the creation of SmartList objects using SQL views such as Budgets By Month or Sales By Customer By Fiscal Year.
While you can also do this using the SmartList Designer, which comes as a standard part of Microsoft Dynamics GP, SmartList Builder is much more flexible and easy to use and has a lot more functionality; I have a blog from May 2019 covering the differnces between SmartList Builder and SmartList Designer.
I have previously blogged about implementing SmartList Builder.
