run SmartConnect map from within Dynamics GP

Sherry Whitten asked 5 years ago
I have a client that INSISTS he is not willing to open SmartConnect, select his map, and run it from there.  He wants to click a button of some kind within Dynamics GP, since he will be in GP all day every day any way, and have it run the map.
Ideas i have come up with include:
A shortcut to the program from GP, but I don’t have a way to specify a map.
A scheduled task that runs the map, then a short cut to that scheduled task in GP.  
A batch file that runs the map, then a short cut to that batch file in GP.  I think this option might be the easiest, but from reading about batch files to run SmartConnect maps, it doesn’t sound very promising?
Ideas?  Thanks!

Any update on this one?

You would need to create a Shortcut in Dynamics GP and then make a call to the SmartConnect.RunMapConsole.exe. Or create a batch file that can be used in that shortcut.
