“The Rebel Alliance Needs You!” or “Vote To Resurrect Multi-Dimensional Analysis”

Microsoft Dynamics GPThere was a recent discussion about Multi-Dimensional Analysis (MDA) and Analytical Accounting (AA) between a group of Microsoft MVPs for Microsoft Dynamics GP; this group involved people from at least three continents and resulted in a fairly unanimous opinion that Multi-Dimensional Analysis was a useful module.

More useful in many ways than Analytical Accounting which was intended to replace it. The problem being that while MDA was fairly simple and easy to use, AA was fairly complex and clunky. While the reporting options for AA are more comprehensive than MDA, they are still not up to the standard of much of Dynamics GP itself.

To this end a suggestion has been logged on Microsoft Connect which we would appreciate you voting on. Suggestions on MS Connect with a lot of votes stand a good chance of being included in a later version of Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Please visit and vote on this suggestion.
