Automatically Generate New Inventory Location Card from Sales Person Card

In a recent implementation of Dynamics GP for a big distributor company, we’ve had a business requirement to track salesperson sales. The simplest automation for that was to create one site (Location ID) for every single salesperson depending on the area they are serving.

One Salesperson Serving Multiple Areas

For each area, the salesperson will have one site. The business role is that the salesperson could server one area at a time (The area is a city in our example). In order to simplify the process, the end user creates one salesperson according to the following serial number (SLP-XXXX), one the other hand, the site will have the following numbering criteria:
[icon name=”transgender” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] Area Prefix
[icon name=”transgender” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] Serial Number

In order to automate the process, the following script has been applied in order to create a new primary site for every single salesperson when it is created.

— The following script creates a trigger on the RM00301 table, which uses eConnect stored procedure in order to create a new inventory site according to the salesperson parameters

CREATE TRIGGER [dbo].[DI_RM_GenerateSiteFromSalesPerson] ON [dbo].[RM00301]
