It’s been an awkwardly long time since I had written anything on this blog. Now is the time probably to break that jinx.
I have been working on testing GP2013 Web Client on our environment. I have been constantly keeping myself updated with GP Web Client by reading our community blogs and forums, but never had seen it on my own machine till today.
Below is the snapshot of GP2013 Web on my MacBook Pro; on Mac OS X Safari browser.
All you need to do is to install Silverlight for Safari on Mac. If it’s not there, you would be prompted to download and install.
I am now excited to get my customisations work with it. Will post anything that’s interesting and worth to be shared in coming days.
That customisation was developed using Modifier with VBA. But with Dynamics GP 2013, much emphasis has been given to the new Web Client. Which means, all our VBA code logic won’t be supported by web client.
That said, I have now converted my code from VBA to VS Tools (using C#.Net as programming language). Those who are interested can download it FOR FREE from following link:
That brings to us a new feature called Document Attachment in Dynamics GP 2013. This can be used instead of OLE Notes. It looks just perfect for me to start using it instead of OLE. Not just because of the incompatibility with web client, but also due to it’s robust features.
More can be read in my next post and also Mariano’s.
Rushi Patel, from Microsoft Dynamics GP Team in Fargo, has started a new series of posts on Developing For Dynamics GP blog that would shed some light on upcoming Dynamics GP in terms of underlying technologies and how its developed.
This post, therefore, is very important for developers and consultants to gear up for this awesome client and understand what they must do to get the existing GP environments to work on the new release post upgrade.
Thanks David for the all important post. It was really crucial for us to understand.
