Acumatica 2021 R1: Navigate to an External URL from a Generic Inquiry

Posted on: April 9, 2021 | By: Minela Covic | Acumatica

One of the new features on Acumatica 2021 R1 includes the ability to navigate to an external URL from a generic inquiry.

For instance, say you want to store a vendor’s alternate ID on the stock item’s cross reference and have it navigate to the vendor’s website:

In this example the alternate ID is the item number from Amazon.com.

Next, get the URL from Amazon.com:

Go to the Generic Inquiry where you are adding the URL. Under the Navigation tab, add the URL as a Pop-Up Window:

Replace the alternate ID in the URL with a field name between double parentheses. In this example, I used ((AItem)) and linked it to the AlternateID from the Vendor Cross Reference on the Stock Item profile.

Under the Results Grid of the Generic Inquiry, navigate the field to the navigation target you just created and uncheck “default navigation”:

View the Generic Inquiry, now if you click the Alternate ID field you will navigate to the Amazon URL:
