Q. It’s my first time to the site, what do I do?
A. To have access to register for events, post discussions, and create a profile – among other things – you’ll need to create a username and password. To do so:
Q. I forgot my password or username, how can I get access to the site?
A. If you’ve forgotten either your username or password, follow the steps as if you were creating a new account.
Q. How can I reset my password?
A. There are two ways to reset your password. If you are logged in, navigate to your Profile. Click the Edit Contact details button. Select Password from the navigation.
You can also reset your password following the steps below:
Q. I have an existing membership, but I can’t remember what email address I used in my record.
A. If you’ve setup your username & password already, login with those credentials. Navigate to your Profile, and select the Edit Contact Details button. The email address associated with your record will display and can be edited. You can also see your email from the left hand side of your Profile.
If you haven’t setup your username & password yet and you think you know your email address, click the blue Login button. Click the Sign Up button and enter the email address you think might be associated with your account. If the email address is recognized in the system, you'll be prompted to reset your password. If your email address is not recognized, you'll be prompted to create a new account. Click Cancel, and please email our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look up your email address for you.
Q. Where do I access my member benefits like Chapter meetings, Special Interest Group webinars, communities, Academy courses, and more?
A. Check under the Learn & Engage tab on the left navigation menu
Q. What happened to Collaborate?
A. Collaborate hasn’t gone away – but the separate URL has. The community features you've enjoyed in Collaborate – communities, discussions, member directory and content library – have been fully integrated with the events schedule, registration, and education you expect from www.gpug.com. You can access these features from the Learn & Engage tab, from your Profile area, or from the Welcome to GPUG Collaborate area on the homepage which appears after you are logged in.
Q. How do I connect with other users in the user group?
A. All User & Partner Members and Subscribers are included in the Directory. Click on Directory under the Learn & Engage menu option. Subscribers have access to the basic search capabilities. Members have access to advanced search options to filter by things like role, industry, number of licenses, and more.
Please note, while contacts for partner organizations are listed in the directory, partners do not have access to search the directory.
Q. Where do I edit my contact information?
A. Once logged in, navigate to your Profile by either selecting the My Profile option under Membership in the left navigation menu or clicking the drop down next to your picture in the upper right and clicking the Profile option. From Profile go to Edit Contact Details button.
Q. How do I add or remove contacts from my company?
A. Once logged in, navigate to your Profile. Select the Manage Users button.
You should see a list of all contacts associated with your company.
Please note, deleting an individual from your company contacts will disassociate that individual from your company and its membership. It will not delete their profile on the GPUG site.
Q. What is the difference between a Member and a Subscriber?
A. By paying annual membership dues, Members have access to all benefits of the User Group including access to all virtual events, complimentary attendance to all Chapter meetings, participation in all discussion forums and communities, advanced member directory capabilities, 50% discounts on Academy courses, and $200 off each Summit registration. Membership dues are assessed based on the number of Dynamics licenses your company has purchased, and one membership gives everyone in your organization access to all user group benefits. Find out more about membership.
Subscribers have access to all open webinars (meaning those that aren't designated Members Only), can attend Chapter meetings for $25 per meeting, can join and participate in all open communities like the Open Forum and Chapter communities, and can access the basic search feature of the directory. Subscribers are encouraged to attend Academy classes and GPUG Summit; however, they are not eligible for the Member discounts on registration. Subscribers do not pay annual membership dues.
Q. I created a profile. What does that mean and what can I do?
A. Creating a profile is the first step to engaging with GPUG. After creating your profile, you will have Subscriber access to GPUG and its benefits.
For full access to GPUG, become a Member.

Depending on what website platform you use, you may have available widgets for displaying the RSS feed on your site (like what we have on our Home Page for the Open Forum discussions). Every web platform is different so if you're unsure of how your site can consume the RSS feed, check with your IT department or website administrator.
Q. What is your cancellation and refund policy?
