OLE Notes & GP 2013 Web Client – Mariano

It’s a bit hard to take it, but reality being the OLE Notes attachment feature won’t work on GP 2013 Web Client for current technical reasons.

Read his post here: OLE Notes and Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client

That brings to us a new feature called Document Attachment in Dynamics GP 2013. This can be used instead of OLE Notes. It looks just perfect for me to start using it instead of OLE. Not just because of the incompatibility with web client, but also due to it’s robust features.

More can be read in my next post and also Mariano’s.

OFF-TOPIC: Increase Productivity By Adding Shortcuts To “Send To”

I often copy my chunk file on to GP application folder as part of my development work, so I must keep two explorer windows open always. Copy from my development folder and paste it on to GP application folder. Difficult and frustrating (at times) to shuttle between two folders every time.

Not anymore; I just created new shortcuts to Send To menu as shown below:

Snip20130213_2

Just select my chunk file from my development folder, invoke Send To menu and send it straight to GP application folder. Awesome, isn’t it? It is, indeed. It saves almost 15-30 minutes a day depending how many times you perform copy paste with same source and destination folders.

Follow the steps explained in this blog post: How to add SkyDrive shortcut into your ‘Send To’ Menu.

The post discusses on how to add a shortcut for Skydrive, but it’s the same steps that you have to follow for any shortcut (internally on your computer or an external location).

I assure you that this trick alone would save you tremendous amount of time and effort in a day.
