  • 1.  Custom Pop-up Notification

    Posted 25 days ago
    Hello Community,

    I was wondering if there is a feature or tool to setup custom pop-up notifications in GP2018 based on certain criteria. For example, if someone is entering a sales transaction for a customer that has certain payment terms a popup with a custom message will pop up.

    Thanks,

    Hi Kerwin,

    Have you looked into GP Power Tools. @David Musgrave may also have some more insight into what you are requesting.

    Thanks!​

    As @Jamie Evenson mentions this can be easily achieved with the Developer Tools module of GP Power Tools.

    You just need to decide when to run the code, what the code looks at and what actions it should take.

    Probably would take 5 - 10 mins to create.

    Regards

    David​​​

    There is no out of the box feature or tool to setup pop ups, your need to go for customization.

    Hey Kerwin,

    How's it going?  David Musgrave's GP Power Tools is probably the best option for you.  It's a lot easier to maintain than VBA as the code is stored in SQL instead of vba files on each workstation.  There are several other features you might find of interest with GP Power Tools - like logging off users that have been in GP for days.

    If you want to talk more about GPPT, give me a call.

    I am a little late here, but I did this exact type of thing, where if the payment terms was COD a pop would altert you if there was no payment linked, If the payment was made or the terms were anything but COD, no pop up. I used GP Power Tools for it. I will say it took me longer than 5-10 minutes to do it because i am no where near as good at DEV as David Musgrave :).  That being said, if i were to do it now, in another system that time estimation is correct.
