It’s filled with 27 tools encompassing everything from security and administration to business processes and the end user experience. In this blog post, we’re going to feature five that are specifically designed to help system administrators.
The 5 Best Automation Tools for Your System Administrator
You have the ability to manage third party products across your system by ensuring all servers and workstations have the correct products installed.
Track User Count
By tracking actual logins against the Microsoft Dynamics GP registered user count, you’ll keep a head count on users to ensure you have plenty of room for all. If you are continuously maxing out your user logins, it may be time to purchase more users.
This one is our favorite, especially if you are planning a routine maintenance. You can prevent users from logging into a specified company or all companies, so you can do your work uninterrupted. Additionally, you can schedule a recurring system lockout process or for a future date and time.
Do you users forget to log out sometimes? Inactivity Timeout allows you to specify an allotted time of inactivity and then, gracefully logs the user out of Microsoft Dynamics GP. In addition, you can also assign different timeout periods for an individual or a group of users.
Conditional Field Level Security
Inside Dynamics GP Toolbox, you have the ability to add conditional Dexterity scripting fields allowing simple customization of Microsoft Dynamics GP. Cool, huh?
