ReQlogic is a web-based tool that allows greater visibility to status of requests, ease of use, and elimination of paper. Pairing Dynamics GP or SL with ReQlogic helps organize your data, reports, and more, giving you the ability to see the big picture, with one-click access to the details.

 

ReQlogic was designed with flexibility in mind, allowing users to configure the solution in ways that make the most sense for their processes. Customizations can be managed in a variety of ways – some involve simple changes that can be made by users themselves; others may require some assistance from Accountnet along with ReQlogic’s development team.

 

Below is a quick snapshot showing how Reqlogic can be customized to fit specific requirements:

  1. Setting general configurations and customizations

There are four areas within ReQlogic that allow users to change configurations and customize the product themselves. Under the Customization menu users can modify the following:

  • Text Administration: change screen labels and system messages
  • Email Messages: redesign emails sent through ReQlogic
  • View Definitions: add, delete, or reorder columns in lookup windows
  • Data Field Customizations: hide, display, rename, or specify required fields (most ReQlogic tables have up to 14 user-defined fields available for customization)
  1. Changing reports

Reports are a popular area for customizations. Accountnet in conjunction with ReQlogic’s development team assists with custom reporting, which may be as simple as adding a logo to a Purchase Order or more complex like adding an entirely new report with a launch screen from the reports menu.

  1. Adding custom SQL-stored procedures

The ReQlogic Software Development Kit (SDK) can be used by trained users or partners to add custom SQL-stored procedures to the hooks designed in ReQlogic. Custom SQL code can be used for:

  • Saving document headers or lines
  • Defaulting new lines
  • Copying documents
  • Submitting documents for approval
  • Creating new documents in Dynamics GP or SL
  1. Designing workflows

Often data entered in user fields creates a need for new workflow routing based on those fields. Our developers can create custom Data Tables to be used as a part of ReQlogic workflow routing based on any data field in ReQlogic or Microsoft Dynamics.

Microsoft Dynamics SL Reporting Enhancements

Microsoft Dynamics SL continues to focus on enhancing reporting for the everyday accounting user while expanding the secure availability of reports to the non-accounting user. A more comprehensive approach improves the accuracy and integrity of insight that you can gain with actuarial, financial, and operational risk. Let’s look at a few examples of how Dynamics SL’s reporting tools can help your business:

Reports – Emailing

Reports can be previewed and now emailed as attachments with the click of a button. New email capabilities have been added to the SAP Crystal Reports and Microsoft SQL Server Report Services (SSRS) preview interfaces. Users can select the report format and email address, allowing them to share report information.

Report – Report Formats

Support has been added to allow for unlimited report formats. To assist in choosing one of these unlimited report formats is a new feature that defines the most commonly used report format for a report, by company. Now when a report is opened, it will default to the defined format.

Report – Meta data

Newly added metadata for reporting means there is no longer a need to guess what a field means when trying to select specific data to display on a report. For instance, the field name“vr_01610A.acct” will be shown with the description, “Account”. In addition it will also display a status indicating if the field is currently on the report (Yes or No) and whether it came from another table.

Quick Query – Refreshable Excel files

Quick Query provides end users the ability to find data to answer questions, drill back into the product or to share the data by exporting it to Microsoft Excel. With Dynamics SL 2015, the Grid to Excel feature in Quick Query has been enhanced to support the creation of refreshable excel table documents as well as pivot tables. Now data can be exported once and then opened and refreshed over and over again.
