Permissions Required to Configure SmartPost?

Andrew Shaffer asked 5 years ago
     Just a quick question – do I need to be logged in to GP as ‘sa’ in order to see the SmartPost menu under “Microsoft Dynamics GP” -> Tools?  If not, what sort of permissions does my user need?

Like any 3rd party application in GP, users are denied access to windows they haven’t been granted to security to. There aren’t any built-in roles/task in SmartPost for this (since there are only a few windows).
So you would have to create a new Task for the SmartPost Windows to grant access to the Routines or Posting window. Then assign that task to a role or make a new role in GP for it as well and assign it to the user and then the menus you’ve granted access to would be visible for the user.
