How To Speed Up Logging Into GP

Microsoft Dynamics GPA couple of weeks ago, I explained how to fix a corrupt menu where a separator item could not be added.

One thing I forgot to mention in that post is that clearing down the Menu Master, which is then rebuilt when logging into Dynamics GP again, is that this cleardown will speed up the logging in process as GP will have fewer entries which it needs to check your user has access to. This is something we schedule in whenever we are doing an upgrade (or if users off off for a Reconcile or Check Links to be run).

Going Live With Remittances By Email – Transferring Email Addresses

Microsoft Dynamics GPA few days ago I posted about testing email remittances and supplied a SQL script for use on the test system to ensure emails remained internal and didn’t get sent to creditors.

I’ve also written a script which will transfer the email address from the current Internet Information column (with the assumption that the email address is in INET1) across to the new EmailToAddress column and then blank out the INET1 column so data is not being held, and therefore maintained, in two fields.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 RTM VPC Is Now Available

Microsoft Dynamics GPDavid Musgrave on the Developing for Dynamics GP blog has forwarded on the announcement that the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 RTM VPC image is now available.

This download comes in two parts; the Tech Demo Toolkit image as well as a Domain Controller image (I’ll try to check this out later but I’m off for a long weekend later today but presumably this is because Management Reporter requires a domain) and is only compatible with Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 SP1; if you have Windows Virtual PC installed you’ll need to remove it and revert back to the older one as, unfortunately, both cannt be installed at the same time.

Check out David’s blog post for details of all the changes or download the Toolkit from PartnerSource (PartnerSource login required).

Update:Just found the original post which came from Jay Manley on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog.

Feature Explained: SmartList Favourites

Microsoft Dynamics GPSmartList is a fantastic module; easy to use and very flexible with great integration with Excel (and with the Letter Writing Assistant which I’ll cover in a week or two’s time).

However, it seems we get an inordinate amount of queries from our clients on how to use it. How to customise the lists to their needs or how to save them for future reference. Continue reading “Feature Explained: SmartList Favourites”

Testing Remittances By Email – Keeping Emails Internal

Microsoft Dynamics GPAs you’ve probably been able to tell from my previous posts, I’ve been assisting a client in configuring Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 so they can test remittances by email.

One of the things I have done for them is produce two SQL scripts to ensure emails do not leave their organisation and reach suppliers telling them of payments being made in the test system. Continue reading “Testing Remittances By Email – Keeping Emails Internal”

Not Privileged To Run this Report Error in Payables Select Checks

Feature Explained: Allow Account Entry

Microsoft Dynamics GPAgain this is not a new feature but, in my experience, is one that is not commonly used. One of the options available on the Account Maintenance window (Cards » Financial » Account) is Allow Account Entry. Unchecked, account codes can only be defaulted in by the system but when checked this option allows users to select the account anywhere in the system.
