Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Cookbook Now Available In August

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPMark Polino and I have been working on a new version of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Cookbook for Dynamics GP 2016. Originally, it was scheduled for publication in January 2017.

However, Mark and I were able to proceed a tad ahead of schedule, meaning the Cookbook is now slated for release in August:

Microsoft Dynamics GP Cookbook

That’s right; scheduled for release this month. Five months ahead of schedule. Don’t worry though, the quality is as high, if not higher, than previous versions as this book is a genuine collaboration between Mark and I. By splitting the work in this way, we were each able to focus on particular areas in which we had strengths.

We also received good feedback, to guide improvements, from fellow MVPS Leslie Vail and Jivtesh Singh.

You can pre-order the book from Packt Publishing, and very soon your pre-orders will be shipped. From what I gather the book should be available to order, as opposed to pre-order, in the next week or so, so you won’t need to wait long to receive your copy.

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Dynamics Financial Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics GP has announced the availability of CU15 for Management Reporter 2012. This cumulative up-date contains a few bug fixes as well as some enhancements.

Here’s a summary of the new Management Reporter CU15 features:

  • PowerShell module to enable reset of data mart.
  • Added a Turkish (tr-tr) localization.
  • Additional fixes for product defects.
  • The Dynamics Financial Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics GP team will be blogging about the new features in detail soon.

    There are a few new prerequisites which are required for this cumulative update:

    • SQL Server 2012 or higher.
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 is also required (when installed this may require a reboot).

    Management Reporter CU15 Release is version 2.12.15000.56; make sure your ERP version is supported by checking the compatibility list.

    The EN-US download for Management Reporter CU15 is here and localised versions will be coming soon.

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1: Downloading The Media

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 13 Comments  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe first step to installing Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1 is to download the media. Sounds simple doesn’t it?

Yeah, not so much. Microsoft promised the software would be generally available on 1st May, but I checked late last night UK time and nothing was there.

I checked again this morning and still nothing.

Until I checked David Musgrave’s blog and found he had been supplied a direct link by someone at Microsoft.

While Dynamics GP 2016 R1 was downloading, I did a little investigating and I think the reason it doesn’t show up for me is that PartnerSource presents itself as UK for me, whereas the link supplied to David was a northamerican one.

Thinking back I had similar problems when Dynamics GP 2015 came out and I couldn’t find the link on PartnerSource or CustomerSource. That time around I amended the 2013 in the link to 2015 and it worked; this time changing it to 2016 did not work.

Hopefully, Microsoft will get this sorted out to so the downloads for Dynamics GP 2016 are available via the UK sites.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 RTM can be downloaded here.

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPPam Misialek announced the release date of Microsoft Dynamics GP on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog yesterday: it is expected to be generally available on the 1st of May 2016.

Microsoft Dynamics GP includes the new HTML5 web client which will be compatible across multiple browsers and devices like iPads and Android tablets.

New Odata connections will be available for Power BI as well as new features requested by the Dynamics GP Community.

There will be posts on the new features starting soon which I will be reposting (as I normally do) with a little commentary on each one.

So hopefully on 1/5/2016 we’ll be able to get our hands on Dynamics GP 2016; good timing as I’m just coming back from holiday then.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 Now Available

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 10 Comments  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft appear to have snuck this one out on the quiet, as I haven’t seen any announcements.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 is now available to download from CustomerSource (login required).

It has a release date of 29/05/2015 so it looks to have been released on Friday. I wish I had known about it as I could have spent time over the weekend taking a look. Unfortunately, I am away for work until Saturday afternoon and then the neighbours have their 40th wedding anniversary party so it may be a while until I can download it.

I’ll be trying to download it from the hotel. But unless the hotel Wi-Fi is far better than I expect, you will have to take a look for me and report back.
