This is the fifth in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is being able to change background and font colours for Microsoft Dynamics GP in the Web Client.

Many years ago, I created a VBA customisation which allowed you to change the window background and toolbar colors depending on the company you were logged into. This used the Dexterity Color_SetSystemColor() and Color_ResetSystemColor() command via Continuum and passthrough sanScript code.

Later, I included this same functionality in the Support Debugging Tool and refined it further in GP Power Tools build 20 and added even more features in the upcoming build 21.

However, ever since Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 was released with the Silverlight based Web Client, I have been asking the Dynamics GP development team to add support for those Dexterity functions to the web client so that the color coding functionality could work with the web client.

When they were working on the HTML5 web client, I asked again, but it was not high enough priority to make the final release. Finally, I created a Microsoft Connect product suggestion to get the community’s support. The more votes the suggestion has, the better the chance that it will be included in a future build.

For more information and example screenshots, check out this previous blog post:

So if you want to be able to have company based color schemes in the Dynamics GP Web Client just like you can in the desktop client, please vote using the links below.
