Best way to copy Entry Customization to Tracker?

Hi All,

I’m trying to copy my PO entry customization over to PO tracker and I’m having a real headache doing so.

I’ve tried to make a new menu that points to the customized PO entry in read-only mode, which worked, but found out that it is lacking some PO tracker features like the line activity, receipt activity etc …

Re-customizing the screen is kind of hard for me as well as it is customized by 3rd party.
What other options do i have? :sweat_smile:

Thanks !

It depends on the customization, but on most of the Tracker/Entry forms, most of the objects tend to have the same or similar naming. For example, I copied a customization from Job Entry to Job Tracker, and about all I had to change was private void JobEntryForm_Load(object sender, EventArgs args) to private void JobTrackerForm_Load(object sender, EventArgs args) and change 2 instances of var session = (Ice.Core.Session)JobEntryForm.Session; to var session = (Ice.Core.Session)JobTrackerForm.Session;

Thanks for your reply Kevin.
May I know if that method would retain tracker functionality that wasn’t present in the entry? For PO tracker, there are line activities tab which are not available on the entry screen

It’s a layer on top, should be fine. You might need to further customize if you need something in that additional tab.

Hi Chun,

Just putting another idea out there, we did this for our heavily customized Sales Order Entry. You can make a read-only version of the entry program via menu maintenance with more open privileges, and set it similar to tracker privileges. While it’s true that it does not have the lookup functionality of the tracker, it does at least provide a view into all of the data stored with the customization.
