The Microsoft Dynamics GP Directory

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPI’ve just found a page on CustomerSource called the Microsoft Dynamics GP Directory and it looks like it has been in existence for quite a while as it has links to information on Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 through to 2016 R2.

The links include Top Reasons to Buy Microsoft Dynamics GP, Top Reasons to Upgrade as well as links to the Feature Blog Series, System Requirements, Service Pack, Hotfix and Compliance Update Patch Releases and much more.

I got to the page from the Dynamics GP Support and Services Blog post on the which I got to through David Musgraves post on Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 New Features .

Just shows it is worth reading around the blogs on Dynamics GP.

Microsoft’s Migration To A New Knowledge Base System Is Now Complete

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 0 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft have been migrating their Knowledge Base to a new system, making some articles unavailable, but have announced the migration is now complete and the articles should now be available again.

Or at least most of them; in the post, Cheryl does say that”outdated content or rarely used content (i.e. no page views in recent years)”; I have mixed feelings about this as I have occasionally stumbled across articles for GP 8 or 9 which have still fixed an issue I’ve had with the most recent versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP.

The migration means that a link like https://support.microsoft.com/kb/915903 is now https://support.microsoft.com/help/915903.

You may need to update any bookmarks or links you have on the old pattern, but at least for the ones I have checked, the old pattern is being forwarded to the old.

This change is why the above link was unavailable when I wrote the Removing Analytical Accounting from Microsoft Dynamics GP post.

KB articles are available by either searching in PartnerSource or CustomerSource (and may the God of your choice answer your prayers for assistance) or by using the search engine of your choice.

Microsoft Dynamics GP January Hotfix Released

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPI don’t usually post about releases, except for major version releases. However, the January Hotfix release caught my eye with a few of the included features in the 2016 R2 one.

As well as having the US Payroll updates there are updates to the following which would be of benefit to clients in the UK:

  • VAT Daybook

    • VAT Daybook Summary reports may not show correct data in boxes 1, 6 and 7 if you voided a transaction.
    • VAT detail report may show incorrect figures if you have 2 or more tax codes on a transaction.
  • General Ledger

    • The Excel copy and paste function may not calculate the credit/debit column correctly when using an allocation account.
  • Fixed Asset Management

    • Tax values may not update properly if a user marks to create multiple fixed assets in the Fixed Asset Purchase Order additional information window.
  • Bank Reconciliation

    • You may experience performance issues with the Checkbook Register Inquiry window after you install GP 2016 R2.
  • Project Accounting

    • Ability to change line distributions for time and material projects in revenue recognition.
    • Fee Accounts not available in line distributions button.
    • Purchase Receiving’s not reflecting WIP account edits from Purchase Order for non-inventory items.
  • System Manager

    • Fixed issues with Uncollated printing.

The hotfixes for Dynamics GP 2013 R2 and 2015 R2 only contain US Payroll fixes.

The post from the Dynamics GP Support and Services blog contains the download links.
