Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Now Available

After what felt like a really long wait, but in reality was to the announced timeline, 19th December 2012 saw Microsoft announce the general availability of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog.

As Errol Schoenfish, Director Product Management at Microsoft, said in the announcement, this version of Microsoft Dynamics GP allows customers to access it either via the traditional desktop client or, at no extra license cost, through an innovative new Web Client presented via Silverlight in Microsoft Internet Explorer. I think the web client is a really good addition to GP with the interface looking very clean and modern and means whether the user is in the office, at home or on the road, they can access information when they need it and in a web client which has the same structure as the familiar desktop client.

In addition to the Web Client, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 has seen the addition of more than 120 new features and capability enhancements to the already rich and comprehensive business management functionality; a sample of the new features can be seen in the Microsoft announced Feature of the Day.

Hands On With The Management Reporter 2012 Web Client

These days I find that time passes far too quickly. Turns out it was on the 14th November that RU3 of Management Reporter was released and I said I’d do some posts on the web client part of it. Well, time flies but I’ve finally found the time to do the post I promised.

When I downloaded Management Reporter 2012 Rollup 3 I did what quite a few people seem to have done and looked for the web client installer within the setup utility. Well, it turns out there isn’t one as it is all handled by the server install. To view a report in the MR 2012 web client all you need to do is output the file to a network location or SharePoint. I’ve gone the easiest route and output the file to a network share.

In the Report Designer, open a Report Definition and switch to the Output and Distribution tab and change the radio button to Generate to multiple report library locations. In this case my report is being output to Library/P&L and if I click on it I can then choose to set a Related Report Link Location which I have set to the shared Dynamics Central location on my server;
