3 Reasons Why You Need a Microsoft Dynamics CRM Partner
You may ask, “why do I need a Microsoft Dynamics CRM partner for an out-of-the box CRM solution?” While there could be numerous answers to this question, I’d like to highlight three critical reasons why you should consider working with a Microsoft Dynamics CRM partner. Based on our experiences with clients, we have seen multiple instances of organizations failing to take on a CRM project in-house. While companies may choose to go solo on their CRM projects primarily due to budget constraints, reality has shown that in most cases the cost of a failed or “half-baked” CRM project by far exceeds the cost of working with an experienced CRM partner. Let’s talk about how and why working with a Microsoft Dynamics CRM partner will help save your company resources, manage frustrations and money, while improving a wide range of your internal and external business processes. Here are three reasons why […]
Business Intelligence Semantic Model – Creating Your First Tabular Model Project – Part 1 of 2
This is the first part in a blog series of two. Go straight to part 2 here.  In order to create your new tabular model project, ensure that you meet the following prerequisites: Have an instance of SQL Server 2012 running in Tabular mode. Have SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) installed as part of SQL Server 2012. Microsoft provides sample databases. The one referenced in this blog is AdventureWorksDW2012 and can be downloaded from http://msftdbprodsamples.codeplex.com/releases/view/55330. Tabular models are created by selecting SQL Server Data Tools under Microsoft SQL Server 2012. The new tabular model opens a new project dialog in the tabular model authoring environment (Visual Studio 2010 or later) where you specify the Analysis Services Tabular Project template under Business Intelligence Analysis Services. Once your project is created, it opens in SQL Server Data Tools and an empty model, Model.bim, appears in the model designer, ready for use. When […]

Script Error when Viewing SharePoint Documents within the Microsoft CRM Outlook Client
While developing a Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution integrated with SharePoint for one of our clients, I would get the following JavaScript error when accessing documents from the Outlook Client: “An error has occurred in the script on this page.” “Sys.InvalidOperationException: A control is already associated with the element.” After a bit of research I identified the root of the problem. The error is caused by the debug mode in SharePoint (which I had turned on for development purposes). To turn off debug mode in the SharePoint site’s web.config, navigate to: C:inetpubwwwrootwssVirtualDirectoriesyour port number Change: <compilation batch="true" debug="true"> To: <compilation batch="true" debug="false"> Problem solved!

Changing Integration Manager INI file setting solves issue when source file data is incorrectly integrated into Dynamics GP
Recently I built a GL transaction integration with Analytical Accounting information using Integration Manager with the eConnect Adapter. One scenario of Analytical Accounting integrations is that the distribution amount may be split out to multiple Dimension Codes. During source file to GP integration testing, I noticed that the Assign % value for a certain code amount was incorrect in the Analytical General Transaction Entry window, as shown below:   After analyzing the log for what the eConnect Adapter is sending to Dynamics GP, I noticed that Integration Manager was entering the transactions from the source file in incorrect order, which interfered with the calculation of the Assign % value. Solution The solution is to locate the folder where Integration Manager is installed and launch Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.IntegrationManager.ini in Notepad. Under the [IMBaseProvider] section, change ‘UseOptimizedFiltering=True’ to ‘UseOptimizedFiltering=False.’ Save and close the file, then restart Integration Manager and run the integration. Now the […]
What is PA-DSS and How Does It Affect Your Customers?
In the Internet era, the risk of data theft in an enterprise environment is extremely high. The resulting impact on consumers can be immense. Responding to growing concerns over data security breaches and theft of credit card information, Visa and the Payment Card Industry have developed two security standards; PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standards) to govern credit card application software developers PCI (Payment Card Industry) Security Standards to ensure merchants who accept credit cards are providing adequate security safeguards to protect sensitive credit card information. The PCI Security Council mandates that any merchant accepting credit cards must be PCI compliant. What this means is that merchants’ IT infrastructure must be secured and verified. If credit card information is stored, it must be encrypted with advanced algorithms and protected with dual split control and an access audit trail must be provided. In addition, if the merchant uses credit card software, […]

Contract Line Import Tool for the Dynamics GP Field Service Module
Eliminate the cumbersome manual entry of contract lines! This blog post describes how to streamline the process of creating and maintaining contracts and contract items in the Microsoft Dynamics GP Field Service module. The Standard Contract Entry screen is used within the Field Service module to create and maintain contracts and individual contract details (see screenshot below). More specifically, the entry screen allows users to specify the customer, duration of the contract, the actual items/services and the contract prices. Entering contract information manually works sufficiently for simple contracts but as the volume of contract details increases, the task of creating and maintaining contract details becomes very tedious and time consuming. I have previously worked with clients dealing with hundreds and even thousands of contract lines. You can begin to imagine how painful, error prone and time consuming the entry task can be! The Contract Line Import Tool Our Dynamics GP […]
