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 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.
- 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.
- You may experience performance issues with the Checkbook Register Inquiry window after you install GP 2016 R2.
- 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.
- Fixed issues with Uncollated printing.
The hotfixes for Dynamics GP 2013 R2 and 2015 R2 only contain US Payroll fixes.

Dynamics GP is moving, following partner and customer feedback, to annual releases. There was a recent roadmap released which you can see here.
Microsoft are currently working on GP Next and this is your opportunity to help shape the future functionality using Microsoft Connect. I would recommend you use that site to request features or enhancements which you would like to have included in Dynamics GP.
I’m about to drive home from client site, so I can’t get my hands on it for another 7 hours or so 🙁
However, Mark and I were able to proceed a tad ahead of schedule, meaning the Cookbook is now slated for release in August:
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.
The book is currently scheduled for release in January 2017 and can be pre-ordered now from Packt Publishing:
The 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:
- Improved responsiveness in the Web Viewer.
- A search bar has been added to search through the current level of the report as in-browser search functions may not always return all results because of the performance changes to improve responsiveness.
- Printing in the Web Viewer through XPS download.
- 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.
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.
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1 reached Release to Manufacturing (RTM) yesterday. This means the product is ready to ship and Microsoft will, in the next few days, finalise the shipping process and make it available for download on the 1st May 2016.
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 includes a new HTML5 web client with cross-browser support (including iPad, Android, and Windows).
Key additions to the All in One Doc viewers; ODATA service for Power BI, new service based architecture entities and 35+ functionality features prioritized by customers; see my feature of the day posts for more details.
If you’re going to the Amplify conference in five weeks time you’ll get to see the highlights of the Dynamics GP 2016 R1.
Pam 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 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.
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 is now available for download (PartnerSource logo required). This release includes the new service based architecture and lots of other new features.
