If you are using GP Power Tools, Batch Posting Service Toolkit, or Visual Studio Integration Toolkit and are having registration issues there is most probably a very simple solution.
This article assumes that your GP Power Tools or Batch Posting Service Toolkit subscriptions are current. Visual Studio Integration Toolkit is free, its subscription is always current.
The quick answer is to just update to the latest code. Read on for more details…
The release of Build 15 of the free product Visual Studio IntegrationToolkit is a bonus to Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP developers around the globe.
As well as the enhancements to the Menu Navigation functionality and the addition of support for custom Area Pages, Build 15 adds a new Helper functions module with over 220 functions.
This build is the result of a month’s development effort and is why you have not heard much from me on the blog recently.
Winthrop Development Consultants is pleased to announce Build 15 of Visual Studio Integration Toolkit (VSIT) for Microsoft Dynamics GP was released on 29-Nov-2018.
This build incorporates the first major enhancements to the toolkit since it was first released. There has been a month’s worth of development, testing and documentation go into this build with a number of enhancements to the menu navigation functionality as well as an entire new module of helper functions.
Recently my Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 installation started generating errors while navigating around the Homepage and Area Pages. I thought it was due to the recent Windows 10 1809 update, but have since learned that this was not the cause.
I temporarily fixed the issue by removing all objects from the Homepage and only using the application menus for navigation and not using the Area Pages at all.
Selling GP Power Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP has always been an interesting affair. If you can get a customer to sit and watch a demo (live or on video from the GPPT Portal), they immediately see the benefits and want the product. However, it is usually the people who work with the product day to day who see the demo and then they find it hard to sell to management.
I recently posted a method of repurposing the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 Intelligent Cloud Insights page to show a website of your choice.
However, if you are running an earlier version of Microsoft Dynamics GP you also have the option to display a custom website by repurposing the Connect pane on the user’s Homepage.
One of the main new features of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 is the option to use the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Intelligent Cloud Insights. This leverages the Business Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence and Analysis functionality in Business Central using a replicated set of GP data uploaded via the Intelligent Edge interface.
But what if you don’t want to use that functionality and would like to hide it from your users….
OK, so it is a day later than planned, but it is here. The Microsoft Dynamics GP Development team have released Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2.
Overnight, I saw the blog post from Terry Heley at Microsoft confirming that Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 has been released.
