Good news to end the week on. I’ve just returned home from the Prometric test centre with a brand new Microsoft Dynamics GP certification to add to my existing two.
The new one is MB3-862 Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Inventory & Order Processing.
When you install Microsoft Dynamics GP it automatically creates a recurring reminder for the Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program. In most cases this reminder is not wanted but removing it through the system for every user can be a bit time consuming;
For each user, log into Microsoft Dynamics GP and open the Reminders window (Microsoft Dynamics GP menu » Reminders) and open the CEIP task. In the window click Name and select an option. Flag the task as Completed and move onto the next user and repeat.
However, help is at hand in with two short SQL scripts. Continue reading “How To Remove The CEIP Reminder”
Les Wright on the Microsoft Dynamics Corporate Performance Management, Management Reporter & BI Blogger
site has posted a list of the Management Reporter versions and their release dates
Of most interest is the release of the latest service pack (which we posted details of here) and the upcoming Feature Pack 2 for Management Reporter 2 which, as Les says, is expected during December 2011.
I believe among other new features is the ability to both schedule and email reports and also a drill-down facility to the GP General Ledger.
A customer recently logged a problem about an error message they were receiving when logging into Microsoft Dynamics GP. The error message was being produced to every user every time they logged in;

I like how Microsoft Dynamics GP handles budgets and the ease with which they can be exported to, amended and then imported from Excel. However, one of the issues constantly raised by customers in the past was that you could only have one budget and had to include all codes within it. This is problematical when you have several budget holders within your organisation who will have a budget figure to divide up between their account codes.
Well, in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, a new feature has been added; you now have the ability to combine several budgets into one. Continue reading “Feature Explained: Combine Budgets”
This is not a new feature in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, or even in GP 10, but is a feature that almost no-one I have spoken to uses. This has always left me slightly puzzled as, to me, the Account Rollup Enquiry seems quite a useful tool, which is quite simple to use even for non-technical users, for getting segment-based enquiries for open or historical years.

The below quote is from Errol Schoenfish, the director of product management for Dynamics GP and gives an indication of the path Microsoft are intending to take.
A large portion of that release will be dedicated to getting us to the cloud. It’s pretty astounding what our development team has been able to do. This was a massive task and ISVs are over the moon about it.”

A recent customer who upgraded to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 wanted to enable the email functionality to allow them to email creditor remittances out rather than having to print them out and sending a hard copy.
As our support account did not have an associated Exchange email account on their system I was getting errors when loading the forms used in this new functionality. So rather than risk problems due to these errors, I put together a quick document for their IT department to enable it themselves. I thought it might also be useful to create an internet version to refer other customers to if they want documentation.

We use eConnect to post journals from external systems into Microsoft Dynamics GP. After working fine for over a year, a customer site recently had transactions posted via eConnect vanishing.
There were no entries in the Journal messages under eConnect_Incoming Private message queue in Computer Management or in the eConnect section of the Windows Event Viewer. Once the message had left the client machine no trace could be found.
