The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog started a series of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 Feature of the day posts the other day. As they did with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day posts they are doing them as short posts containing a PowerPoint slide show. I am translating these from the PowerPoints into posts; you can find my series index here.
The twenty-fifth Feature of the Day covered is Email or Print any Report in Word format; again I have a PowerPoint for this feature, but there is no page on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog. This feature means users will be able to send any report via email using a Word Template.
The Email Options form now has an option for .docx available :
This feature works differently in the Web Client as opposed the Desktop one.
The Web Client will automatically create a template for the report when it is printed and the template option selected. If the report is being emailed then email addresses can be specified for docx.
However, in the Desktop client a template needs to be created prior to sending via email; the template creation can be facilitated by using the Word Template Generator tool.
