Changing SmartList Column order, number of records, etc.
Belinda, the GP CSI beat me to the press with this post Change the Defaults? about how to change the default columns, column/field order, maximum number of records, etc for basic GP SmartLists. (Microsoft Dynamics GP >> Tools >> Setup >> System >> SmartList Options or Navigation List – Administration >> Setup >> System >> SmartList Options )
Did you know that you can use this same screen for your SmartLists from Builder too? Yes, you CAN have the fields appear in a logical order for your users. (YEAH!!!!)
But, and this is a very big but, you will lose all of your changes on this screen if you make any changes in Builder to this SmartList afterwards. So, document your column order & max records settings (other setting should be done in builder) and re-apply these after making changes in SmartList Builder (and applying/updating them in SmartList).
This should allow you to make much cleaner and more user-friendly SmartLists.
