  • Create simple calculations
  • Join tables

  • Create go to’s
  • Creating Excel versions
  • Import and export

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Use Smartlist Designer to create new SmartLists from scratch and existing SmartLists.
  • Update and configure security.
  • Deploy SmartList as Excel refreshable reports.

2. Getting the Works out of PO Workflow | Thursday, October 17, 4:15 a.m. – 5:15 a.m. | Location: Emerald 8

In this course users will learn how to create a workflow for purchase orders in Dynamics GP. This will include guidance on how to:

  • Route and send documents for approvals.

  • Add users to the workflow without requiring GP licenses.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

3. Make GP Excel Reports Usable Again by Limiting Transaction Details | Friday, October 18, 2:30 a.m. – 3:30 a.m. | Location: Sun 3 & 4

In this course users will learn how to modify the existing Excel reports to return less data dynamically. When a company has large amounts of transactions or a significant amount of history, the Dynamics GP Excel reports can become unusable due to the sheer number of details returned.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Navigate the data connections for an Excel report.
  • Modify existing data connections to limit data by adding dynamics parameters for date or field values.
