Of course, this is going to be a boon to End Users, but let me also add that this would not be possible till someone knows about how to browse thru’ and learn GP Fields and the way it is designed. Which puts them in front of a whole new training session.
The very concept of Resource Descriptions in GP is to educate Users to learn about GP Tables, Forms, Windows & Fields, so that they can do some on-spot Reporting or Windows modification. Having said that, not all End-Users are going to be interested in this learning experience, especially when they are suppose to concentrate on their day-to-day tasks.
Nonetheless, this is going to be one heck of a feature to look at.
What this means? Dexterity supported only Microsoft Visual SourceSafe (fondly called VSS), which has been used under discontinued support from Microsoft. Those who wants to streamline Dexterity Development on their organizations, found it very difficult to use something which is not supported by Microsoft but Dexterity.
Microsoft introduced Team Foundation Server (TFS) which is advanced and very easy to use and maintain. With Dexterity 2010 R2 release, the biggest gap in Dexterity Development history is now filled.
Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP excites us with this post: Feature of the Day: New SQL Reporting Services Reports.
I am more interested in knowing Field Service Reports, since that’s where GP lacks a bit in terms of realtime reporting. I sincerely hope R2 fills that gap to most extent. Of course, requirements from different customers would always be different.
All Homepage Metrics dashboards are SSRS reports on the background. And I used to wonder how I could customize that to cater for Customer’s requirements. The new feature, Report Builder Integration, is going to be a boon to all such consultants (and of course for all customers) to view Metrics Dashboards accordingly to their own likes and dislikes.
For more information, read the post; Feature of the Day: Report Builder Integration.
Awesome list of features being added and I have already started preparing my own plan of actions once it’s out.
