Here’s a look at our standard Microsoft Dynamics GP Home Area page without any custom shortcuts. By the end of this, we will have custom shortcuts set-up to our most commonly used areas in each module, links to our favorite SmartLists, and shortcuts to commonly accessed websites all logically grouped together using folders.
By right-clicking in the white-space area and selecting “Add”, we are presented with the options: “Add Window”, “Add SmartList”, “Add Macro”, “Add Webpage”, “Add External Shortcut”, and “Folder”. What I want to do is add 3 initial folders “Window Shortcuts”, “SmartLists”, and “Websites”. Within the “Windows Shortcuts” folder, I add additional folders for “Sales” and “Financial”. In each folder, shortcuts to windows, SmartLists, and websites can be added.
In the end, we will have a Home Area page with our shortcuts neatly grouped together, allowing easy access to windows, SmartLists, and websites used throughout the day.
