Custom Shortcuts in Run Window

WindowsWindows 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< :

Implementing Enhanced Notes: What is Enhanced Notes?

GP Elementz Enhanced NotesThis post is part of a series on Implementing Enhanced Notes from ISC Software Solutions.

Enhanced Notes is one of the GP Elementz available from ISC Software Solutions.

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.

Shortcut Command Line Parameters For Outlook Email, Appointments, etc.

Microsoft OutlookI’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 EMAIL and have a new email window open.

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 email instead of note as I never remember it on first attempt.

Implementing SmartConnect: Conclusion

eOne SolutionsThis post is part of the series on Implementing SmartConnect, an integration tool from eOne Solutions, which can take data from any source and integrate it into Microsoft Dynamics GP (and other systems such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM or Sales Force amongst others). It has a drag and drop interface to make creating integrations quick and easy for all users rather than just developers (as many integration tools target).

Over the course of the last few weeks, I have installed and configured SmartConnect from eOne Solutions. The installation is fairly straightforward, but you do need to make sure that tasks are completed in order.

With SmartConnect installed, the next step is to create an integration. Therefore, in a few weeks, I’ll be doing a small series on creating a simple integration. For testing that SmartConnect itself is working, I usually create a Standard Journal integration; it’s a nice simple one, but one which is useful to all clients.
