Hi All, Today I want to share with you a quite advanced customization that can significantly enhance your data security. Lets start with business task first: Customer want to limit visibility of certain documents and entities between different users and group of users: Users should see the entity or document if he is creator, owner or belongs to a workgroup that can see the document. If users see the entity or document than all his managers should also see the same document. Users who don’t belong to assigned workgroups should not see the document or entity. It is possible that documents or entities are assigned to multiple workgroups simultaneously For… Read more

In this article I show couple of examples of working with Generic Inquiries from code. Redirect to a Generic Inquiry You can redirect user to a Generic Inquiry from code almost the same way you redirect user to any other screen.

Hi All, Today want to share with you some thoughts about how to organize additional processing in Acumatica.Commonly we may need to to something together with document release: create contract, send EDI request (like inter-company), call 3rd party API and so on.
