Vaidhyanathan Mohan : Nice post up there on Ben Hosking’s CRM Blog… Originally posted on Hosk’s Dynamic CRM Blog : Now and again I get asked how to become a better CRM Developer, so I thought I would create a blog to point people towards and here it is. 1.
A customer has reported an issue with web client that many sessions are open while no body is working, they wanted to kill all these sessions without restarting the server, few researches over the internet returned the following CMD commands that did the trick, just Right Click the cmd.exe and run as administrator, then paste the following commands: Taskkill /F /IM Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Process.exe Taskkill /F /IM conhost.exe Viola! You saved an hour of manually killing these in your task manager or session manager. Note: To make sure that the windows cleans all sessions at night, I saved these commands into Batch.bat file and scheduled this with windows scheduler to run every night 4 AM, so users can find a clear log next morning.
If you are looking to implement the Purchase Order Workflow, you must keep in mind that limited users will not be able to approve Purchase Orders, user should be FULL user to be able to process orders, I am not sure why Microsoft folks designed it this way but I got one of my customers to purchase additional 5 users to get this implemented! I have requested this enhancement from Microsoft and kindly asking for your votes to get this fixed, below is the article on MS Connect: https://connect.microsoft.com/dynamicssuggestions/feedbackdetail/view/1030936/purchase-order-approval-to-work-with-limited-users Happy ordering!

Thinking about this subject, can’t find a company who does not follow the standards in their procurement process, everyone brings 3 quotations from 3 different suppliers and selects the best fit from requirements and pricing! I found this process on Connect requested since 2010 with very limited votes! I would kindly ask for your help in voting and getting this scheduled soon, below the description of the product suggestion: I think Dynamics GP is one of the few applications in the ERP world that does not have the request for quotation functionality, the process is like this: – RFQ (enter details for items willing to purchase) – Select one or more vendors and the system should print separate RFQ for each (and prepare the system to receive responses from each) – Receive quotes from Vendors and update on system – Compare vendor’s prices against same lines in RFQ – transfer one of the quotes to Purchase order Note: The is the simplest cycle possible and there are many other advanced consideration that can be added later on like: – Issuing PO against more than one vendor quote for same RFQ – Ability to update quotation with new discounts and data maintaining original information and changes (quote version control).
If you are using the web client, you might be going through the message in the subject, this is annoying for users with too many daily transactions! As reported by one of my customers! This issue occurs only when you have the date format with string month (dd-MMM-yy) like the below: Just make sure that the month is numeric (dd-MM-yyyy) and you will get rid of this message!

When you see the window print button you expect that the information of the window you are on is being printed on a report writer report, and when one of your customers inform you that no action is being taken upon pressing the report you just feel like the user is not aware whats going on and a privileges issue should take place! Well for Purchase Requisition Entry form this is not the case! the window print is not linked to any of the available reports, clicking the button will do nothing and you will feel a little bit confused about what to be done! The button indeed does not have a report assigned, but you can design your report on SSRS and link it to this button! Just click the Small Arrow near the print button and hit “Assign Reports”, then select the report you need to link, see the below for clarification: Regards, — Mohammad R.
