Modifying Reminders’ display on GP Home page

Last week, I was adding a series of reminders on the home. As I kept on adding more reminders, I noticed it was getting harder and harder to read them. I wanted to make the data displayed on Microsoft Dynamics GP home page more readable. I decided try modifying the home to accomplish this. These changes are applicable to both GP 10 and GP 2010.

For some background about modifying the home page refer to following articles:

I reviewed files in Background folder in GP installation folder (GP 10  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\GP\Background and GP 2010  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\GP2010\Background). I found the css classes used in reminders section are:

  • part-content-newlink
  • part-content-suffix

I modified the HomePage.css (GP 10  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\GP\Background\HomePage.css and GP 2010  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\GP2010\Background\HomePage.css) to change the formatting of these classes. Take a backup of this file before making changes.

part-content-newlink: It is applied on each row displayed in reminder section. If you make any to this css class it will applicable to all reminders

Example I added following section a bottom of HomePage.css file

.part-content-newlink

{

font-size: 12pt;

}

Resulted in increased font size for reminders

However, this was not quite what I wanted. Instead of highlighting whole text I just wanted to highlight the data only.

part-content-suffix: This class is specifically applied to the data value displayed in the reminder. Any changes made to this class are applied on number displayed next to Name of reminder

Example

.part-content-suffix

{

font-size: 12pt;

color: Blue;

font-weight: Bold;

}

Resulted in following

Exactly what I wanted!
