Setting up the VAPS

How to configure bar labels

The bar labels of the VAPS provide further information on the following items of your production schedule

In the picture below, you see the bar label of a production order line in the Sales View, showing 

  • the production order number
  • the number of the production order line
  • the quantity

You can specify which information is to be shown in the bar label of the respective item in the "Label" dialog - to be reached by clicking "Configurations" in the "Actions“ menu of the "VAPS Setup" dialog:

  • In the "View - select label" dialog, select the item and/or view for which you want to customize the bar label - in our case "Production Order Line": 

  • The “Edit – Define Configuration” dialog pops up:

  • Here you can add, insert, edit, and delete fields as well as change their order. You can select the desired table name and field name from your Dynamics 365 BC data by clicking “…” 

Formatting the labels

Separate the field contents in the bar label by a line break, a blank or other separators by selecting the according separator from the  “VAPS Format Strings”  table.
