This is post 3 in my series, but it’s the first post where I’m starting to document actual work in PowerApps. Today I have simply started to create the shell of my new app “My Golf Stats” as well as start to get the data layout for what I envision in Excel. This post will just be about the app shell and I’ll dig into the Excel part later.
I can’t believe it’s nearly 6 weeks ago that I posted my first post on this topic! Wow, time flies when you’re having fun! Quick recap: I’m interested in learning PowerApps, but as of the moment, I don’t have a good handle on a business application for it in my company. So, it’s going to be a personal project I’m going to tackle to get a sense of what it can and can’t do.
Today’s #TipTuesday post is around GP Utilities and what permissions are required. If you are going through any service pack install or upgrade, you might have a lot of workstations that need to be updated! In our case, we just upgraded our Dynamics GP and wanted all hands on deck to help with installs, including some IT team members who didn’t have any GP access. Here’s how you do it and what permissions are required.
I’m getting ready to leave Fargo for another year and head home after a long but great week of learning and networking. For those that may have missed my earlier posts, here are the 3 posts I wrote after each day of the Dynamics GP Tech conference:
Today was day 3 at the Dynamics GP Tech Conference. As in other years, the 3rd day is a half day and many people head on their way back home right after the conference is done. For me, it’s a bonus part of a day off to regroup, review notes, check in on email etc. and get ready for 2 more days of training. I’m going to be taking the eOne Solutions SmartConnect bootcamp Thursday and Friday.
Today’s #TipTuesday post is for anyone who might be running more than one local instances of SQL Server. I often have at least a couple of instances on my laptop, as historically I would want to have the ability to mimic some client installs, as close as I can. While I am no longer a consultant, I will continue to do this so that I can have an instance the somewhat resembles what version of SQL and Dynamics GP we use at work + the latest version of GP with all the latest things installed. For blogging alone, I want to have the latest and greatest to play with and learn what’s new.
I’m back in Fargo, ND for the annual Dynamics GP Tech Conference. Today was the first day of the conference (Monday August 20th).
I arrived on Saturday morning, with very little trouble, except some minor stress of believing I might have been bumped from the 2nd leg of my flights to Fargo. It turns out, if you book in a low enough class of ticket, you aren’t assigned a seat until you are at the gate in the airport. No choice of seats, you get what you get and you’re technically on standby until then and could get bumped. Fortunately, I did not, but next time I may not be going for the absolute cheapest fare I can find.
Today’s #TipTuesday post is a simple one, and it’s about user notifications. In GP 2013 R2, the “Send Users Message” feature was introduced as an easy way to send a notification to users who are logged in or to add a task to users’ reminder list in Dynamics GP.
Today’s #TipTuesday is a brief post about Budget Transactions. Introduced in GP 2010, Budget Transactions were a feature to add more control over budget changes in Dynamics GP. Here is a brief post on how it works.
