It has been a way too long between releases, but I am finally ready to release Build 18 of the Support Debugging Tool for Microsoft Dynamics GP for versions 10.0, GP 2010 (v11.0) and GP 2013 (v12.0). This build includes fixes and enhancements to existing features as well as a few new features. I still have a number of great features planned for the Support Debugging Tool (SDT), but sadly just not enough time to develop them all. New in this build is a Feedback Survey so we can obtain some real data on the number of users, what features they use and their satisfaction with the tool
This will be a 2-for-1 post today as the example given solves a frequently asked question and was used to solve a customer issue. The question I’ve seen a number of times before and been meaning to write about is: “How can I fill the Sales Order Processing scrolling window to a specific line?”. With Dexterity it isn’t terribly difficult but is it possible with Visual Studio Tools?
One thing we’ve noticed recently is an uptick of cases involving Visual Studio Tools assemblies causing Dynamics GP to crash after being installed. While I don’t think this has anything to do with GP 2013, it does seem to happen on that version. Perhaps everyone is just going to the new version and thus coincidental. The first case I recall seeing was a developer trying to deploy his customization to the customer site. It worked fine on his machine but as soon as it was installed to the Addins folder on the customer machine and Dynamics GP was launched – it crashed.
Reblogged from : In the wake of the past year’s usual crop of failed ERP implementations, I’ve read a couple of blogs that bemoan the fact that ERP systems are not nearly as user-friendly or intuitive as the mobile apps that everyone loves. I’ve complained about this aspect of ERP , and our research confirms that ERP systems are viewed as cumbersome: Just one in five companies (21%) said it is easy to make changes to ERP systems while one-third (33%) said making changes is difficult or very difficult.
