Release 1.7 of VPS and VJS for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Posted by Ute Gillet on Jun 26, 2020 12:16:41 PM

The summer has arrived and who would have thought that the situation is still as exceptional as it is - I hope you are all well!

At NETRONIC we are all still working from home and - what can I say - everything runs smoothly and effectively as it has been during the last three months.

So - on time like a clockwork and sticking to our promise - we released version 1.7 of both the Visual Production Scheduler (VPS) and the Visual Jobs Scheduler (VJS). While the focus of version 1.6 was mainly on streamlining the products and improving the user experience, the new version now offers a couple of handy new features.  

As always, the complete release information can be found in the respective notes for VPS and VJS. Moreover, both new versions will be  available in AppSource soon.

Baby steps to personalizing your visual scheduler

Posted by Paulina Soto on Apr 22, 2020 11:15:26 AM

New software, new struggles, right? Let’s hope not! So, you’ve got the Visual Jobs Scheduler (VJS) or the Visual Production Scheduler (VPS) for Dynamics 365 Business Central, you understand the basics but can’t seem to fully get it? That’s fine! Let me tell you something. You have a visual scheduler installed because someone thought it was a good idea. 

And here’s why. With a visual scheduler, you can view all your orders at a glance, and you can change the production dates and resources. You can even create links between orders or jobs and much more, by only using your mouse. There’s no need to drown in dozens of Business Central cards anymore. The first step to embracing it is to own it. No, I don’t mean the license, but to personalize it. 

In this blog, I will address the steps to personalizing your new visual scheduler. And, I will refer you to our articles on the topic for clearer instructions.

New release of VPS and VJS for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Posted by Ute Gillet on Apr 15, 2020 11:08:00 AM

First of all and beyond anything I hope you and your relatives are well and healthy!

It's been not so long ago that I've informed you of the 1.5 release of both the Visual Production Scheduler (VPS) and the Visual Jobs Scheduler (VJS). In the meantime, the world as we have known it has changed completely and the days when I wrote this blog seem like forever ago. But as you all know, it's no use complaining so we at NETRONIC rolled up our sleeves and settled in our home offices. Thankfully, none of our team members has gotten sick yet and due to our well-organized and well-working hard and software we are fully operational as our CEO Martin pointed out in his blog  How we ensure our operational agility for you - and for ourselves some weeks ago.

So you can be assured that the new version was worked upon with the same care and dedication as you are used to from us. Also in version 1.6 we continued the process of streamlining the products and improving the user experience - and let me tell you here we have achieved a true leap in performance! - but we also came up with a couple of  nice useful new features for you.  

As always, the complete release information can  be found in the respective notes for VPS and VJS. As of now, both new versions are already available in AppSource :-)

How to keep track of job progress in project planning with Dynamics 365 BC

Posted by Ute Gillet on Mar 12, 2020 12:44:46 PM

Version 1.5 of both the Visual Production Scheduler and the Visual Jobs Scheduler have been released as of lately. These releases don't offer as many new features as you may be accustomed to from us, but this doesn't mean, of course, that we have been idle. On the contrary, to further improve our products and offer you the best possible user experience we decided that in this release we would do a lot of streamlining and consequently have strongly focused on product maintenance in the form of bugfixing and performance improvement.

For you and me, this means that we have more space and time to deal with the main new feature of the VJS and explain it in detail, with a little theoretical excursion into the world of formulas. As always, the complete release information can  be found in the respective notes for VPS and VJS.

Improve project planning with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018

Posted by Ute Gillet on Aug 7, 2018 4:39:00 PM

The so called Jobs module of Microsoft Dynamics NAV is designed for companies with largely project-based business (like engineering or construction companies) to gain better control of their projects. Since the ERP system’s module seems to focus more on the aspects of financial project controlling rather than on the requirements of a day-to-day project management, I’d like to outline in this blog post how you can easily enhance your NAV 2018 system with interactive Gantt charts to facilitate a graphical drag & drop project planning.
