Dex – Dexterity and IntelliSense: It’s time to vote!

June 25, 2010

Yesterday I presented some arguments for IntelliSense implementation in Dexterity. If you are an ISV or application developer who spends a lot of time developing Microsoft Dexterity applications and working in the Dexterity environment, you may certainly appreciate the benefits of having intellisense embedded in the sanScript language. Take this sample muck up of the Script Editor window:

As a result of this, I have opened a Microsoft Connect product suggestion to have this feature implemented, but it cannot be even considered if YOU the reader don’t take 1 minute of your time to vote on the suggestion. So, if you are reading this now, please click on the link below the image (or on the image itself) to cast your support for this suggestion.

Microsoft Connect product suggestion 570553

[Ed:] If you have problems accessing the link, visit http://connect.microsoft.com/ to associate your Windows Live ID and create profile prior to voting.

The Microsoft Dexterity development community would also appreciate if you could join the cause, even if you happen not to be a developer. Now, go vote and tell everyone you know about the case number!

Until next post!

The Technology Corner: Houston Neil weighs in on Microsoft Dynamics products

November 24, 2009

Fellow blogger Houston Neil addresses the proverbial question of what’s the difference between the Microsoft Dynamics products. The truth is, to understand the functional and technological differences, you have to go back a few years in history to look at the Microsoft Dynamics products acquisition process, the failed Microsoft Project Green, and perhaps, even look at Oracle’s attempt over the last 7 years to consolidate their products after their acquisition of PeopleSoft to understand that the ERP world is a very complex one with the customer base driving product decisions across the board.

I am a big Microsoft Dynamics GP proponent and defender, and in fact being an MVP allows me to carry out a lot of the product evangelism to customers and partners. Despite the product directions and strategies I have been witnessing over the past couple of years, I will be the first to say that there will be GP for years and years to come (see my article on Microsoft Dynamics GP Roadmap Update). Am I confident that 10 years from now I will be telling you the same story? I would hope so, but don’t bank on that one! After all, the market evolves and set the tone, and ultimately customers in any industry determine what stays and what goes… however, GP chances are looking pretty good from where I stand.

Until next post!

Visit the new Dynamics Partner forums

May 12, 2009

Global English Partner Online Technical Communities upgraded to the forum platform since Apr 27, 2009, at 9:00am PST. I have to say I have been quite excited lately working on the new Dynamics GP (Partners) forum platform. Forums defer from Newsgroups in that these are moderated by Microsoft employees and are exclusive to Microsoft partners who are Registered members, Certified members, or Gold Certified members — this is, they are not public.

The following are links to the different partner forums:

Dynamics GP
Dynamics AX
Dynamics NAV
Dynamics SL
Dynamics RMS
Dynamics Sure Step

Until next post!

Dynamics GP upgrade from 8.0 to 10.0 and Year End closing

February 5, 2009


My friend Doug Pitcher over at Rose Business Solutions has more information on GL year end closing after upgrading from Dynamics GP 8.0 to Dynamics GP 10.0. Apparently, there is an issue with the GL_Account_SUM_HIST_View not being updated correctly after the upgrade, causing a failure near the end of the closing process. Doug also has some recommendations on overcoming this issue. Please click here to read more.

Until next post!
