As you many know about this ” Some Acumatica ERP functionality is implemented through automation steps, which are steps to be executed on an Acumatica ERP form for specific records or objects generated in the system, depending on the properties of the record or object. For a data entry Acumatica ERP form, you can create any number of automation steps that redefine the functionality of toolbar actions, add values to combo box lists, or provide default values for the form elements, based on the properties of the records under processing. ” – Help Document
Today I would like to share with you about the ability to do customization with Automation Step.
- Enable / Disable button, field in Screen
- Enable Processing using the Automation Step
Firstly, you can enable/ disable button in each entry screen in Acumatica by using condition. Let example in the Customer Screen, I will do the validation for Credit Hold Status:
- Disable New Payment Button
- Disable Customer Name
Secondly, I would like to show ability to add the Action in Processing Screen.
The scenario is you want to have a mass process to place your order in to back order status, but by default the action for mass update for action “Place on Back-Order’ have not been added to Process Order.
Here are the steps to bring this action to mass processing screen.
In conclusion, with Automation Step you can easy to customize your screen and also work flow. Not only the standard screen, you can also apply customization action for your new screen in Acumatica. Please check out this article from our Help Document
By the way, you have seen “Step ID” in screen, to determine step in Standard Acumatica Screen, you can enable and show the automation steps by adding the line <add key=”AutomationDebug” value=”True” /> in the webconfig file.
Have a nice customization without any single line of code 🙂
