Feature Explained: Remember User & Password

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP does not support Windows Authentication but in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 a new option has been added to allow the user’s username and password to be remembered for when they login.

How To Remove The CEIP Reminder

Management Reporter Version Numbers & Release Dates

Microsoft Dynamics GPLes Wright on the Microsoft Dynamics Corporate Performance Management, Management Reporter & BI Blogger site has posted a list of the Management Reporter versions and their release dates.

Of most interest is the release of the latest service pack (which we posted details of here) and the upcoming Feature Pack 2 for Management Reporter 2 which, as Les says, is expected during December 2011.

I believe among other new features is the ability to both schedule and email reports and also a drill-down facility to the GP General Ledger.

Feature Explained: Account Rollup Enquiry

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis is not a new feature in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, or even in GP 10, but is a feature that almost no-one I have spoken to uses. This has always left me slightly puzzled as, to me, the Account Rollup Enquiry seems quite a useful tool, which is quite simple to use even for non-technical users, for getting segment-based enquiries for open or historical years.

Windows XP – 999 Days of Support

WindowsOn the Windows Team Blog Steven Rose has posted a reminder that only 999 days of support remain for the now rather venerable Windows XP.

…reality is trophies get dusty, records are broken, and what it took to be the best ten years ago, just isn’t enough for today’s standards. Things get better, faster. And eventually, it’s time to move from good enough to something much better.
