In this blog post I describe how to get your item names in the language connected to the user when using custom lists in Infor M3.

In one of my previous blog posts I described how to build your own list program using the custom list functionality in CMS010. My example was my own version of the manufacturing order program PMS100, click here to read about it again.

Since PMS100 is based on the table MWOHED, the most natural field to add to the view for product number is of course VHPRNO. The item name is taken from the item master, MITMAS, field MMITDS. 1_ViewMWOHED

But what if the users want to see the item name in their own language? Of course a translation must be available in the item name/language program (MMS030), and you also need to configure MNS150 to show item name in the language of the user – but there is one more trick to make it show in your custom list.

You have to add the field MMITNO (item number from the item master MITMAS) to the view. If MMITNO isn´t available in the view, the custom list won´t check for translations of the item name. Putting the item/product number field from other tables in the view is not doing the trick, you have to add MMITNO. But once that is done, you will see the name in the correct language, just like you do in for example item/warehouse MMS002 😊

If you are running Infor OS/H5 you have the possibility to create really nice homepages for your users. The homepages are the starting points for all roles, and one of the widgets you probably want to have on your homepage is the menu-widget. On the menu widget you can add links to M3 programs for example, but by using bookmarks you can make the links smart, and let them open the programs with predefined selections and searches.
In this blog post I'm describing how to create bookmarks in M3. Since we are moving towards Infor OS and H5, we need to handle that there are some differences in how you manage bookmarks in the different user interfaces for M3.
In Infor M3 13.4 there is a new possibility, you can build your own list program. This blog post will show you how to do that.
There’s been the possibility to personalize the M3 programs for many years, but still I have a feeling that there is a lot more that can be done in this area in many cases. For example, how many of you are using the possibility to add shortcuts/hyperlinks that via a bookmark takes you to the correct panel in M3?
