Winthrop Development Consultants Newsletter – May 2019

David Meego - Click for blog homepageSince the end of the 2018 conference season we have been hard at work updating our product range. This includes two major updates to GP Power Tools and new releases for Batch Posting Service Toolkit and Visual Studio Integration Toolkit. To take advantage of all the new features, enhancements and fixes (for free), please update to the latest code.

If you want to learn more about the benefits of our product range, please watch the short presentation:

GP Power Tools (GPPT)

Build 26 was released in February 2019 and build 27 released in May 2019.

These two builds add many new features to each of the modules, including Automatic Timeout, User Activity Logging, Launch File Configuration, Dynamic Product Selection, SQL Login Maintenance, SQL Gotos, Triggers on Modifier Added Fields and Modal Dialogs and much more.

Batch Posting Service Toolkit (BPST)

Build 10 was released in December 2018 with a hotfix released in May 2019.

This build added a suite of additional web services to allow for the creation, editing and deleting of batch records. Core Dynamics GP web services allow for the addition of transactions to batches but provides no method to create or post the batches…. This is where Batch Posting Service Toolkit comes in.

Visual Studio Integration Toolkit (VSIT)

Build 15 was released in November 2018 with a hotfix released in May 2019.

The highlight of this build was the addition of over 220 helper functions for use by Visual Studio developers to expose many functions normally only available to Dexterity developers.
