MDGP 2016 R1 Feature of the Day: Export/Import in SmartList Designer
April 26th, 2016 by Ian Grieve
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 saw the introduction of SmartList Designer. It was reasonably useful, but nowhere near as useful as SmartList Builder. Little by little Microsoft are making SmartList Designer more useful. Microsoft Dynamics 2016 R1 actually makes it quote a bit more useful by adding the ability to export and import SmartLists:
One f the problems with SmartList Designer was that you had to create the SmartList on the server on which you wanted it; you could not develop it on a test system or development system and if, as a partner, you wanted to give it to another client you had to recreate it. This is why I often created SQL Views and plugged them in rather than creating the SmartList in the Designer.
I’ll need to do some testing to see how good the export/import functionality is, but this feature may allow us to put together SmartLists on our development system and then export them for clients.
