I upgraded a customer to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 a couple of weeks ago and they have started to explore some of the new features. After fixing their payment run problem they enabled the new functionality for emailing remittances. Continue reading “Not Privileged To Run this Report Error in Payables Select Checks”
Again this is not a new feature but, in my experience, is one that is not commonly used. One of the options available on the Account Maintenance window (Cards » Financial » Account) is Allow Account Entry. Unchecked, account codes can only be defaulted in by the system but when checked this option allows users to select the account anywhere in the system.

David Musgrave has released an update to build 15 of his Support Debugging Tool. Full details of the changes are available on the Developing for Microsoft Dynamics GP blog.
There are two updates available;
Microsoft Dynamics GP does not support Windows Authentication but in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 a new option has been added to allow the user’s username and password to be remembered for when they login. This isn’t as good as Windows Auth as the password does not have rules enforced by Active Directory but can make logging in easier for users.

In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, several enhancements have been made to the Select Cheques window in Payables Management to add flexibility and allow more control over the building of the payment batch; a feature which has proven popular with the clients who have seen it.

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.
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”
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.
