Business Analyzer - Assign Contacts
Why this feature is cool!
Business Analyzer enables end users to assign Microsoft Lync, Office Communicator 2007, or Email contacts to reports. This great feature allows users to always be one click away from sharing report data with the people they commonly work with.
· Contacts can be assigned per report per user
· Supports Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Office Communicator 2007, and Email contacts from the Internet Information window in Dynamics GP
· Contact assignment can be initiated from Business Analyzer, Microsoft Lync (context menu), Microsoft Office Communicator 2007(context menu), or from a report action
What does this look like?
Do you know if these contacts have to be in Active Directory to access the data? I'm curious if customers and vendors can access the data.
The users do not need active directory. You can share the data with a vendor/customer through Lync/Communicator, pasting the image into the conversation if you want. If you want a vendor/customer portal where they have direct access to data, you would be looking at SharePoint deployement.
