Search in GP


In Additions, users can use the Search module to quickly search for different objects. When the user clicks on the entry that they are looking for, the correlating value will open up within Microsoft Dynamics GP. The goal of Additions Search is to improve efficiency in Dynamics GP by adding a powerful search tool in a selection of companion forms. This tool has the ability to search a number of fields, making the user more efficient and allowing them to find the desired data more quickly. The search module can match a search term with a customizable selection of fields such as sales document, customer, and vendor searches. All of these values can be searched at the same time from any keyword or number. The results grid of the search screen is fully customizable, allowing the user to control what fields they see and search. Also, it is possible to order by, write a custom filter for, or modify the layout and size of any available column. Once installed, additions will instantly pop up by selecting any of the following in GP:

  • Sales Transaction Entry
  • Customer Card
  • Item Card
  • Purchase Order Entry
  • Vendor Card
