Can SmartConnect Integrate Dynamics GP & Salesforce.com?

We’ve seen it before… just a typical day in the office for the Accounts Payable team until their worst fear from the Sales team enters the room and informs them that the biggest sale of all time had been lost due to lack of integration between Dynamics GP & Salesforce.com. Now the task of integrating the two rests on a lone member of the AP team… is this the end? Is all hope lost?

Luckily

Windows 10 will be a free upgrade from Windows 7/Windows 8/8.1 for a full year

The Windows  Blog has just announced that – “a free upgrade for Windows 10 will be made available to customers running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 who upgrade in the first year after launch”

The upgrade is permanent. You have a year from release to get it.

Other notable news –

“Wow, an augmented virtual reality headset from Microsoft? Is this Oculus? Or Google Glass? It’s something else. It’s clear so you see the projected images as if they are in front of you. It’s not a tiny screen like Glass or a screen that blinds/immerses you like Oculus”

With these amazing changes, I agree with Scott’s assessment that Microsoft is working toward’s Satya’s vision –

“We want to move from people needing Windows, to choosing Windows and loving Windows. That is our bold goal with Windows.” - Satya Nadella

The Great Plains Wall of Fame

I have a 3 week, all expenses paid vacation in Fargo, ND in January at the Microsoft offices, learning some of the finer points of Dynamics AX.  As such, I thought I’d share some of the remarkable sights here.  These two walls, in the hallway as you enter the Horizon Building from the Vista Building on the Microsoft Campus, display an interesting collection of news articles from the early days of Great Plains, up through when Microsoft bought the company in 2001.  Pretty cool to take in the history of the application that so many of us have based careers on.

Friday Funny: Australia Day 2015

David Meego - Click for blog homepageMonday 26th January is Australia Day for 2015.

This is a time for Australians to reflect on how lucky we are to live in the “Lucky Country”. For many it is also a time to relax with the family on the public holiday.

For the last few years, it has also been used as a great time to promote having a party with friends and cooking lamb chops on the BBQ.

Meat & Livestock Australia have been releasing a funny advert each year for this purpose and have outdone themselves with this year’s offering.

 

Cast of Australian characters and personalities:

Check out my post from a couple of years back: Off Topic: Australia Day 2012 Eat Lamb Campaign.

Enjoy

Tech Tuesday: Creating Document Distributions with SmartConnect


This week’s Tech Tuesday is from our Support Guru, Pat Roth, with his descriptive article on SmartConnect and Receivable Transactions!

There are a few common issues I’ve seen with document distributions when creating them using SmartConnect. This is blog talks about Receivables Transactions, but it would apply to pretty much any kind of Dynamics GP

Where’s David during January 2015?

David Meego - Click for blog homepageHi everyone

It has been a while since my last post, but that has been because I have been in holiday mode.

Sadly, holiday mode does not just mean relaxing. Before Christmas and between Christmas and New Year and then for the first week of the new year, my family and I worked on sanding back the wooden decks (4 areas) around the pool in the back garden all the way to raw wood. We then acid washed the decks and repainted with a tint coat and two slip resistant finishing coats.

It has been a huge amount of work with many hours morning and night invested. You could not work during the day as it was too hot and we had to wait for the deck to get back in the shade and cool down. We had one day when it reached 44.4C / 112F and we could not even use the pool as we did not want to get the decks wet.

However, the end result was worth it.

Deck2
Large Deck and Raised Deck

Deck1
Little Deck and Bridge

Deck3
Decks and Pool

After all that work, the family and I are now enjoying a proper holiday for a bit, so the posts will be thin on the ground until I am back on board.

David
