Field Level Security in Dynamics GP 2010

In Dynamics GP 2010 all Business Essentials(BE) users receive Field Level Security(along with Account Level Security and Electronic Banking Suite) at no additional cost.

This makes the recent post by Frank Hamelly on Field Level Security worth highlighting -  http://gp2themax.blogspot.com/2010/05/gptip42day-fiield-level-security.html – He has a nice example “let's say you want to hide the Current Cost field in the Item Card from everyone but your cost accounting department.  Here's how you do it with FLS:”

Using Field Level Security you can hide any field on a window from specific users. Without Field Level Security if you want to hide the Post or Approve Button on the Batch Entry window from specific users, you would have to use a customization or VBA Code. Field Level Security offers this out of the box. Field Level Security also allows you to assign passwords to make a field or window available to the users.

If you want to have Field Level Security the way it was when I originally wrote, have a look at the conditional scripting add on from Rockton Software.

The scripting capability allowed for much greater functionality.

Also, the nicer link to my FAQ KB article is
