GP Power Tools Build 26 & 27 New Features: New in Build 26: System Module Enhancements

Winthrop DCThis post is part of the New Features in GP Power Tools Build 26 sub-series of the GP Power Tools Build 26 & 27 New Features series in which I’m taking a look at the changes and new features since I last blogged about GP Power Tools.

The first area of new features I’m going to cover, is the System module in which there are a number of new features:

  1. Window Visibility
  2. System Status Report
  3. Send Email Window

Window Visibility/Discoverability

Window visibility/discoverability has been improved by the introduction of Find a Window and Raise All Windows options on the Tools menu:

New options on Tools menu

These functions aim to improve discoverability and visibility of Microsoft Dynamics GP; they should prove useful by making it easier to find windows and also by allowing you to bring all windows in front of the main Dynamics GP window.

System Status Report

The system status report has a number of improvements:

  1. Registered modules have been added.
  2. List of Visual Studio Addin DLLs have been added.
  3. Details maximum users allowed.
  4. Details if Dynamics GP is running on a Terminal Server.

Send Email Window

The Send Email window has been enhanced to word wrap.

The new feature will make it easier for users to create and review the email message being sent.

GP Power Tools Build 26 & 27 New Features: Changes Since Last Series

Winthrop DCThis post is part of the GP Power Tools Build 26 & 27 New Features series in which I’m taking a look at the changes and new features since I last blogged about GP Power Tools.

One of the key changes to GP Power Tools, is that it is now directly distributed by WinthropDC rather than by a third party. The third party route was taken, I believe, as a quick way to market after David Musgrave licensed the code for the Support Debugging Tool in order to create GP Power Tools when he left Microsoft and founded WinthropDC.

If you purchased GP Poer Tools while it was being distributed by WinthropDC you should already have upgraded build 24, or later, to avoid licensing issues.

There have been multiple new features introduced across the two major builds of GP Power Tools. I’ve broken these new features down across two sub-series, which will be posted over the coming days.

GP Power Tools Build 26 & 27 New Features: Series Index

Winthrop DCThere are a large number of ISV products available to extend Microsoft Dynamics GP, and I’ve taken a look at a very few of them recently. One I looked at last year was the David Musgrave.

I took a Hands On look at implementing the GP Power Tools product followed by going hands on with two of the modules:

I did mean to take a look at more of the modules, but got sidetracked. Since then, there have been a number of changes to the GP Power Tools, which I will be taking a look at in this series.

Developing for Dynamics GP Blog Saved

Winthrop DCI am a little behind posting this one, but I think it is quite important to spread the news widely.

David Musgrave, now of WinthropDC, used to work at Microsoft and was the main author of the Developing for Dynamics GP blog which was part of the msdn blogs. This blog was an absolutely great resource on Dynamics GP, especially on more technical areas.

However, showing the impermanence of the Internet, earlier this year Microsoft announced that they would be closing down that platform. In order that useful posts weren’t lost, David has downloaded all of the old posts from the blog, which he deemed still useful on current versions, and imported them onto his new WinthropDC blog.

All of these posts have been categorised as Developing for Dynamics GP; in time they will also start to show up in search engine results.
