Learning Objectives:
• Understand the capabilities of Extender to add resources to Microsoft Dynamics GP
• Use Extender to create new windows and fields in Microsoft Dynamics GP
• Use the advanced options of Extender Enterprise to add logic to Extender Forms and Windows

Description: Extender works by "extending" the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics GP. In particular, it is useful for extending the application to manage additional data relative to Microsoft Dynamics GP transactions or master records. Extender allows you to add windows and forms that record the data that isn’t otherwise captured by Microsoft Dynamics GP. If you have Extender Enterprise, you can also add logic to Windows and Form to perform tasks set criteria.

Extender has so much to offer, so in our time together, we will explore the capabilities of Extender including:
• Creating a basic window and form
• Understanding field types
• Using options available such as auto open, required fields, etc.
• Adding Resources to a SmartList
• Creating Templates on windows and forms
• Adding Actions on windows and forms
• Adding Inquiries on windows
• Creating Extra windows on forms
• Using Imports to bring in Extender data
• Create Menus to access Extender Forms
• Using Actions to add logic to Extender Resources
• Reporting with Extender data using the Builder tools, Report Writer, Views, etc.

Monday October 13, 2014 8:00am - 5:00pm CDT
Room 264
  • Duration Full Day
  • CPE Eligible Yes
  • IMPORTANT Class Preparation REQUIRED HOMEWORK: Your instructor has chosen to leverage Academy’s hands-on training environment from VisiLearn called vConnect. This means you will have the ability to work with technology in a virtualized environment during your class. There are steps that MUST to be taken prior to class in order to make your experience a positive one. To leverage the VisiLearn technology you will need to be able to download and install software to your PC. This may require Administrator rights on your PC depending on your Group Policy settings. If you are unable to install the software you will still be able to participate in class and learn a ton, you just won’t be able to take part in the hands-on labs. If you are unable to install the vConnect lab to your PC you want to contact your organization’s desktop administrator for assistance. You will need this software installed prior to class to access the lab. An Academy Help Desk will be located in Room 122 at the America’s Center. Please proceed to Room 122 if you have any problems while on site. No refunds will be issued for issues associated with the environment, wireless connectivity, or other technical components.
