cu8 blog

Microsoft Dynamics SL CU8 is now out, so let’s go over what is new and what has changed!

  • The DMGDataAccess Business Object now uses the Microsoft OLE DB driver for SQL Server Version 18 in the latest update. This means that Inventory Replenishment Create Transaction, Convert EDI Pos to Sales Orders, and Orders to Purchase will all now connect using the OLE DB driver.
  • SL CU8 will be able to run on Windows 11, if you have questions on how this works, we can help break down the step by step process for the installation.
  • The look and feel of journal entries have also changed with this update.  The Journal Entry (01.010.00) screen has been updated to now have hidden labels. These labels generate list text for the cBatchHandling and creconstatus drop down controls. There are hidden labels for O and V options of the cbattype dropdown to make localization easier. See the picture above for the hidden label controls.

That wraps up our notes on what has changed in this new update. Be sure to contact us if you have any questions about CU8. You can reach us here: info@polaris-business.com.

Summit Blog 2022

We are finally back from the annual Acumatica Summit. Over 1,800 people were gathered at the Wynn Las Vegas to see how the world’s fastest growing cloud ERP system continues its advancement.

With Day 1 came a lot of emphasis on customers, growth, and agility. The keynote session with Acumatica CEO Jon Roskill focused on showing how Acumatica has an ecosystem mentality for its growth. This ecosystem includes developers, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), Valued Acumatica Resellers (VARs), OEMs, and of course the customers and community. Also, it has three focuses: Integration, Extensibility, and Vertical Application.

There were also three announcements made:
- Acumatica is going after a new vertical with the implementation of a Property Management Module.
- Acumatica Document Cloud will make the integration with Adobe that much smoother.
- Autodesk integration with model viewer embedded into Acumatica.

Acumatica is focused on aligning with customer needs, the democratization of tech, innovation, and growth. Jon Roskill left us with a final statement, “Thank you for trusting Acumatica.”

On day 2 we were formally introduced to Acumatica 2022 R1. Presenters started strong talking about community focus and emphasizing once more about how the customers are what makes this product what it is. They listen to what they want, and they work on building solutions that will work for the customers.

2022 R1 focuses on 3 main ideas: Working smarter on the go, unlocking global markets, and going broader and deeper with industry-leading capabilities. Some of the integrations in R1 include UiPath Connectors, where customers can easily automate repetitive tasks. Another integration is an Amazon Connector integration for those who sell on Amazon.

Acumatica focuses on enhancing the user experience and making sure they are always staying current in a fast-paced technology world. With updates to its mobile app, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, Acumatica is proving its dedication to its customers.

Microsoft-Dynamics-SL

Just in time for the Holidays, Microsoft released some news for us. Every time the year is close to an end, we wait for those Year End Updates or anything else they might be releasing. Just last week, Microsoft came out with Dynamics SL CU7. There isn’t too much to unpack, but let’s get into it.

This update focused more on the 1099-NEC Form, as well as the 1099-MISC Form. The 1099-NEC or Non-Employee Compensation has been updated to support the IRS 2021 tax reporting formats. The same goes for the 1099-MISC (03.740.00) Form. The new 1099 Forms can be printed through the 1099 Forms Report.

In addition, some minor fixes have been included in CU7, however, support for Windows 2011 is still not included. If you have any questions about these updates, either fill out the form below or reach out to info@polaris-business.com.

Acumatica 2021 R2 New Feature Review: Business Events and Notification Templates for CRM

Blog42

New CRM Business Events have been delivered with Acumatica 2021 R2 that can alert users to changes in leads, contacts, accounts, or cases. These pre-defined templates in business events and notification templates mean you would not need to have a user with customizer rights to create them from scratch.

Now a System Administrator can simply activate the business event by checking the “Active” check box on the Business Events (SM302050) form. Email notifications have also been created and the related emails could include one record or multiple reports.

Some notifications will be sent on record change and some will be sent by a schedule. A system administrator will still need to create the schedule to turn on those Business Events.

Notifications can also be sent to a mobile device assuming the appropriate license is activated in Acumatica and the user is accepting Push Notifications.

Other users may have different rights that would allow them to drill down and see this information.
