Once Enhanced Notes has been installed, you need to start Microsoft Dynamics GP as an administrator as new code needs to be included:
Windows 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< :
When you’ve download the software from the link on the free trial email, extract the files from the zip and run the Setup.msi:
Enhanced Notes is available for download from the GP Elementz website; as I am installing this on my demo company, I will register for a free trial:
In the last post, I took a look at what the Enhanced Notes module was. The table below shows the similarities and differences in the functionality offered by standard Microsoft Dynamics GP notes and the GP Elementz Enhanced Notes.
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.
Instead of a single notes page, Enhanced Notes allows discrete notes to be created:
ISC Software Solutions, the company I work for has, over time, developed a number of add-ons for Microsoft Dynamics GP. The first one of these add-ons I’m going to take a look at is the Enhanced Notes.
Over the course of this series, the index below will automatically update to show new posts as they go-live (unless you’re viewing this via a syndication feed, when you’ll need to check back to the original post).
I’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
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
note as I never remember it on first attempt.
This 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.
