WinthropDC Special Promotion for Pennies for Taylor

Winthrop DCMicrosoft Dynamics GP MVP Shawn Dorward’s son, Taylor, was involved in a drowning accident a few weeks ago. Thanks to Taylor’s friends and the emergency teams, Taylor survived but has suffered significant brain damage; he is now on the long road to recovery and making great progress.

A Go Fund Me has been running to assist in paying for Taylor’s medical expenses.

To assist further, MVP David Musgrave has decided to give 10% of all new sales of Winthrop Development Consultants products (GP Power Tools and Batch Posting Service Toolkit) sold until the end of September to Shawn.

Kevin Rasmussen from Ethotech told David that he will match the same offer for their products. David also has a challenge for other Dynamics GP ISVs: see David’s blog for details.

Please, if you can contribute something to help Taylor, even $5, do so and, if you’re an ISV, take a look at David’s blog.

Microsoft Dynamics GP Custom Link Series by Shawn Dorward

Microsoft Dynamics GPMVP Shawn Dorward has recently been taking a look at the use of custom links in Microsoft Dynamics GP. This is an area of Dynamics GP which I have never written about and, while I’ve shown it to a few clients, I don’t think any of them are actually using it.

However, as the series from Shawn shows, custom links can actually be very useful.
