GP Integration Question

Mark asked 6 years ago
In older versions of GP & Smart Connect, we used to be able to get to Smart Connect under the Tools menu in GP. Is it true that this is no longer the case and Smart Connect must be used as a separate application now versus integrating directly into GP?

Mark, In very old versions, SmartConnect used to be a dexterity application inside of GP like all dexterity apps are. Since SC 2011, SmartConnect was rewritten as an external application just like Excel, Word, etc. Because the application is external, there isn’t a menu item to launch it anymore. If you wanted, the user could add a shortcut to their home page that points to the new executable.
