Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2021 Release: Create a Company

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2021 Release series where I am going to go hands on with installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2021 Release and associated products.

When doing demos, I always have more than one company available so I can show intercompany postings or other items which may need two databases. You can create a new company in GP Utilities; log in using the sa account:

GP Utilities login window

Click Next a few times to progress to the Additional Tasks window; select Create a company and click Process:

Additional Tasks window

Enter the DB / Company ID (which is limited to five characters) and the Company Name; if you want there are a few settings you can load of copy be selecting the appropriate values. Click Next to continue:

Create Company window

Check nd change the names and locations of the database data and log files and then click Next:

Database Setup window

Review your selections and if happy to proceed, click Finish:

Confirmation window

You can mark the two checkboxes to deploy the BI reports, but I haven’t yet configured the reporting tools so have left the checkboxes unmarked. Click Next to continue:

Business Intelligence Reports Setup window

You can choose to set up the company later or using RapidStart. I always set the company up later; click Next to continue:

Company Setup Options

You’ll then be taken back to the Additional Tasks where you can create additional companies, log into Dynamics GP or exit.
