Employment History SmartList Missing


With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2, a new SmartList was added called Employment History.  It was added to view the new Employment History Tracking feature that was added in GP 2016 R2.

There are scenarios when applying the GP 2016 R2 update that the SmartList doesn’t get created.  Microsoft has released a SmartList Designer import to put it into SmartList.  If you are using SmartList Builder, you are going to want to import a list using SmartList Builder instead of SmartList Designer. 

You can find more information on the new feature at the following link: https://mbs.microsoft.com/Files/customer/GP/Downloads/ProductReleases/MDGP_2016R2_Features.pdf

There are two options on importing the Employment History list for SmartList Builder

  4. Mark the Employment History list for the Builder module you wish to import to.
