With Extender 2013, we have whole lot of surprises on how it got enhanced. One biggest enhancement/change to Extender is the way it treats Extender Detail Window (that is the name till previous version).
Previous version’s Detail Window definition looked as follows:
Not any more… There is no such option called Detail Window. From now on, every window is called, well simply, a Window.
So where is the option to setup whether it’s a multiple row entry (grid) or not? Here it is:
Just select option “Display scrolling grid” and you are good to go.
Clearly, eOne developers have done an immense cleanup work on Extender’s design. Overall, classification of Extender resources itself is now shrunken as follows:
Interesting changes; I have not gone thru’ all changes/enhancements yet. I will be posting more on all those interesting and critical changes.
So far, thumbs up to eOne Team, for their efforts.
We have just announced on the Official Google Blog that we will soon retire Google Reader (the actual date is July 1, 2013). We know Reader has a devoted following who will be very sad to see it go. We’re sad too.
There are two simple reasons for this: usage of Google Reader has declined, and as a company we’re pouring all of our energy into fewer products. We think that kind of focus will make for a better user experience.
Then what about that *devoted following*? Is it just a foolish bunch who had immense faith in Google Reader than even Google’s own management and team?
Google; you have rights to develop or kill your products. But trust me, you have lost that immensely devoted followers of your product. Soon enough, you would be pressing your own self-destruction button and get lost.
Well, I could understand what you might think after reading the title of this post AND if you had read my previous post on GP 2013 Home Page Redesign.
I did admit that the redesign was kind of great for users. Ian Grieve had commented back with an important #FAIL factor of this redesign.
With that #FAIL factor, I just got one more to crib about. So lets list it:
You cannot scroll within a frame. You MUST rely on mouse clicks(or a trackpad). You have no other option. (Thanks Ian, for your feedback with this point).
If you ever want to realign the frames of a module (for instance Manufacturing), you can. But wait, that would stay ONLY TILL THAT SESSION IS ACTIVE. Once you log out from GP and log on back, your realignment is gone. Poof!!!
I am sure it is going to be highly irritating for users who rely mostly on GP home page.
And with that above statement, I now reverse my opinion on my first post.
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:
