SmartConnect 2013 Service Pack 1

We are very excited to release SmartConnect today!

Service Pack 1 for SmartConnect 2013 has over 40 new features added along with several fixes. Here are a few of the really exciting features and the download below:

Multiple Datasources – You can use the feature to pull data from an Excel Sheet, a SQL Table and CRM all at one time without creating calculated fields.

View Event Logs inside of SmartConnect – This feature will give a SmartConnect user access to view the Windows Event Log messages from across machines on the network directly inside of the program.

Folder Real-Time Triggers – Now you can have a map trigger immediately after you place the integration file in a directory. Scheduling this before was pretty good but now it runs right away.

Extender eConnect Nodes – The GP2013 Extender Nodes are REALLY nice now. It will allow you pick your window and it actually bring back the fields you have on that window. This makes mapping Extender information even easier than before. Additionally, you can add as many Extender windows and forms as you want.

Web Service as a data source or destination (we had destination before) – The ability to add any web service that has a defined WDSL as a datasource was added with this release. We had previously added the ability to use a web service as a destination and with this new functionality, we can pull or push information right from inside of SmartConnect. If you are on Dynamics GP 10, 2010 or 2013 , using MS CRM or Salesforce, you will find that this version will give you a great experience as you upgrade.
