What are Activity Panes and Quick Lists?

They deliver predefined views of payables, receivables and project information in Dynamics SL. It allows users to proactively manage business critical situations before they turn into a crisis through a graphical icon view. A quick list can be associated with each activity displaying all the details like vendor, customer or project information. You can also click on a quick list item and the associated Dynamics SL screen opens with more information.

What is an Activity Group?

Activities are grouped or categorized by Module. These categories are called Activity Groups. Examples include: Payables, Receivables, Project, etc.

What is an Activity Cue?

Within each Activity Group listing there are Activity Cues that typically represent the pending work for a user or group. Each Activity Cue can be set to link an action which includes executing a Microsoft Dynamics™ SL Screen/Query, an external program, URL or a Quick List.

What is a Quick List?

Quick Lists are associated with Activity Cues. The Activity Cue that has focus will be listed in the Quick List area. You can double click on a line item in the Quick List to open the specific screen that will show you that information. Note: You must have access right to the screen for it to open.
