Are you using version 13.2 of M3? Don´t forget to take a deeper look into the new functionality for list panels. If you open program CMS005 you will find all programs where the new list standard is available at the moment.  Let me give you a couple of examples where this functionality could make you more efficient, and give you more information – without having to modify M3.

Panel view of CMS005

In the example below I have used the new list standard in PPS200, purchase orders. In the old versions of this program, you had to check the different panels to get all useful information; with the new list standard you can see all you need directly in the list.


Here we see the name of the buyer instead of the code, I can see order amounts in different currencies, and I have also added information about the supplier. On top of this I have added selection criteria to make it easy to find the orders I am interested in. Together with some personalization for status codes this list can help all types of users!


There is also a possibility to build views with fullscreen editing. In the example below you can see a view where you can update planning data for an item directly in the list instead of going through all panels.


When you use the new list function you also get the authority check for free, a user that doesn't have access to change items will see the list in display mode.

The best thing about this functionality is that it is easy to learn! If you know how to build sorting orders and views, you will learn the new functions in no time. I am convinced that this function will reduce both modifications and the need for reports. Since you can connect several tables to your view and add virtual fields this is working almost like a query tool – but it is standard functionality in M3!

If you haven't had a look at this function already, please do! In M3 version 13.3 there is even more functionality available in this area, more about that in future blog posts.

Sometimes you want to know how many records you have of a certain type in a list. If I am looking at purchase order lines I might want to know how many open order lines I have per supplier, or how many delayed order lines we have at the moment.
