Our series of BI/reporting classes for Dynamics GP continues with the second of three sessions. In this “201” class we’ll delve into “The Builders” series that comes with the SmartList Builder license. This course is open to any Dynamics GP user.
This comprehensive look at "the Builders" will help you get even more data out of your system, on your terms, by spending time and working examples in the following areas:
Table Structures within GP and which tables you’ll likely leverage the most
Deployment of GP’s standard Office Data Connections (refreshable Excel workbooks)
Compiling new SmartList queries via SmartList Builder
Supplementing the Refreshable Excel Workbooks with the Excel Report Builder
SmartList Builder takes the highly popular, easy-to-use SmartList tool in Microsoft Dynamics GP and dramatically increases its power and range. We’ll review how you can query more data in more ways with SmartList Builder, which gives you access to all the information that you capture, enabling you to create your own custom SmartLists. You’ll see how useful SmartList Builder and Microsoft Office Excel 2007 working together can be, and further add to your Business Intelligence capabilities and provide your users with valuable insight with an overview of Navigation List Builder.
