Are you looking for a Business Essentials version of the Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 Technical Demonstration Toolkit? We are excited to announce the release of the Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 SP4 and FRx 6.7 SP10 Business Essentials Technical Demonstration Toolkit! This Technical Demonstration Toolkit/VPC contains: Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP1, Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 SP4, Extender, Microsoft FRx 6.7 SP10 and Microsoft Office 2007 SP1.

There is one extender demonstration script for each company (scripts are the same - just different companies) released for this technical demonstration toolkit. All of the other Microsoft Dynamics® GP 10.0 demonstration scripts have not been tested.

Key Features Installed:

· New Sample Data Company - Contoso Entertainment Systems. Contoso Entertainment Systems is an electronics company. We are in the process of creating new sample data in addition to Fabrikam, Inc. This company only has core GL, AR, AP, IV SOP and POP data. In the coming months, we will continue to build out this new dataset. Check it out!

· SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) - We have deployed the Microsoft Dynamics GP Standard SSRS Reports for both Contoso Entertainment Systems and Fabrikam, Inc.

  • Extender

i. Windows and Detail Windows

a. We will look at building additional windows linked to existing GP windows. We will also take a look at “context sensitive” windows render only when certain data is entered into the main GP screen. We will go on to look at some workflow examples where data can be entered into the same Extender window by two different users and from different places in GP.

i. The specific windows and functions covered are listed here:

1. Going Green: Windows attached to employees and payables to track corporate carbon emissions

2. Context Sensitive Sign/Install: Using these items in SOP will pop the related window in Extender

3. Promotion Codes: add promotion codes to every sales order in GP

4. Subcontractors: Tack the subcontractors you are going to use for delivering a sale

5. GL Description to Short: See how to use Extender

6. Shipping detail Tracking: Use this window in SOP, order fulfillment and historical enquiries.
*Please reference the Demonstration Scripts associated with the Extender on the Technical Demonstration Toolkit Download page for additional instructions and information.

ii. Mini-Applications

a. This section will look at ways to link multiple screens together and create custom menus which form mini applications. With the right preparation up front these functions will win you many more GP sales than you ever dreamed possible.

i. Application

1. Contacts

2. Software Management

3. Rentals

4. Professor and Class Management
