Features of Enhanced Notes from ISC Software: Introduction to Enhanced Notes

GP Elementz Enhanced NotesThis post is part of the Features of Enhanced Notes from ISC Software, as well as part of the over-arching GP Elementz from ISC Software series.

Enhanced Notes extends the standard Microsoft Dynamics GP notes functionality by allowing multiple separate notes to be recorded against records or windows. The main functionality of Enhanced Notes is:

  • Enhanced Notes are available on transaction, record and window notes.
  • Multiple notes can be created for each transaction, record or window note (stamped with user, time and date.
  • Each note can be emailed to multiple recipients and/or groups.
  • Tasks can be associated with a note, assigned to another Dynamics user or User role and given a due date.
  • Retains all features of current notes including Document Attachment (and for older versions the OLE container).
  • Existing notes entered before Enhanced Notes was installed are retained.
  • Notes can be categorised and sub-categorised for selective viewing.
  • Any individual note is not editable (unless enabled by an administrator); changes are entered as a separate note, thus retaining an accurate history.
  • A users ability to delete notes is individually enabled.
  • A full print of the notes is available.
  • Can be selectively enabled for individual companies.
  • Notes attached to Quotes are automatically attached to Orders when the Transfer to Order function is used.

GP Elementz from ISC Software: GP Elementz Add-ins

ISC Software SolutionsThis post is part of the GP Elementz from ISC Software series.

There are a number of add-ins available from ISC Software for Microsoft Dynamics GP which have been written in Dexterity, which have the look and feel of standard windows. These add-ins are sold under the GP Elementz label.

There are five main Elementz products listed on the GP Elementz website:

  • Enhanced Notes​ – Extends and secures standard notes by allowing multiple separate notes to be recorded against records. Includes user alerts, categorization and audit functionality.
  • Financial Elementz – A collection of windows and reports that enhance standard financial Dynamics GP function.
  • Distribution ​Elementz – ​A collection of windows & reports that extend Dynamics GP SOP, POP and inventory functions.
  • ​Security ​Informer – Provides on-screen messages stating details of which window or report access is denied.
  • Invoice Transformer – Consolidate or ‘mirror’ SOP invoices. Transfer item lines between SOP invoices.

I’m also going to take a look at one of the other GP Elementz products which is available and that is PO Management. This add-in provides an alternative to the standard SOP-POP Link which allows for partial invoicing of committed sales orders.

Workflows available in Microsoft Dynamics GP

Microsoft Dynamics GPSince Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 saw the introduction of a new Workflow module for approval of documents, almost every version of Dynamics GP since then has introduced new functionality to workflow; sometimes in the form of new approval types or integration with other modules such as Document Attachment.

This diagram shows the available workflow types, colour-coded by version introduced:

Available workflow approval types

If you are looking to implement workflow, I have a book which can guide you though configuring the Microsoft Dynamics GP Workfow module from the basics of designing your workflow process, through building it and the ways that users can interact with the workflow for approvals.

The Workflow module is quite popular and becoming much more so with so many clients working in a distributed manner. There is one problem on the horizon and that is the retirement of TLS 1.0 and 1.1 which the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP rely on. We are waiting for confirmation as to when a fix for this will be available, but I am expecting the fix to require an upgrade of Microsoft Dynamics GP which isn’t always quickly possible.

Fortunately, the company for which I work, ISC Software, are both a VAR and an ISV with a number of products and services available.

One of those products is PurchaseHQ which provides an Azure hosted web portal through which users can log on to do their purchasing series approvals. It fully integrates with the Workflow module in Microsoft Dynamics GP (blog and video) for document approvals (blog and video). The portal is quite a popular approach for organisations with a lot of approvals which need to be done as approvers have a web page they can logon to to see all of their approvals for all companies in one list, rather than receiving one email per approval.

GP Elementz from ISC Software: Series Index

ISC Software SolutionsI have been working for ISC Software since January 2019. I have been working in the Microsoft Dynamics GP space since 2003 and ISC are now the third partner I have worked for. However, they are somewhat different to the previous companies for whom I have worked in that as well as being a VAR (Value Added Reseller), ISC are also an ISV (Independent Software Vendor) who have a number of add-ons available for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

While ISC are based in the UK and have an additional office in Dublin, Ireland, the add-ons we sell are available to anyone around the world using Microsoft Dynamics GP. As I have with products from other vendors of add-ons (such as eOne, Fastpath and Jet Reports), I am going to a series of posts on the products available from ISC; in particular I am going to look at the functionality they contain and will at a later date cover the installation and configuration.

I will be interspersing the posts of this series, and sub-series, with other posts as things of interest come up.

TLS causing a Microsoft Dynamics GP Workflow approval error

Microsoft Dynamics GPI have recently been doing some work with a client to enable the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP for external approval. This requires a steps to configure them for secure external access; when it was configured we tested on afew devices including Android smart phones and iPhones.

We found that everything worked fine, except for the Android devices which returned the following error:

Approval error on Android

ERR_HTTP2_INADEQUATE_TRANSPORT_SECURITY

When I investigated the issue I recalled that I had seen references to this issue previously, but hadn’t realised the meaning. The problem is that the web services use an older version of TLS which has started to be deprecated and actually retired; this looks like it will be a much bigger problem starting very soon as the major browsers also remove support.

Enhanced Notes Setup Window Missing

GP Elementz Enhanced NotesA while ago I did a series on Implementing Enhanced Notes from ISC Software Solutions. I more recently installed the add-on again on a different machine and, after doing some initial configuration, wanted to change the settings, couldn’t find the Enhanced Notes Setup window (Administration » Setup» Company » Enhanced Notes » Setup Enhanced Notes):

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 ability to record discrete user/date/time stamped notes is a really good one. A number of clients use the standard notes, manually adding user, date and time to the comments with the newest a the top, but this gives you a potentially very 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.
