Plan, Prepare and be Proactive for a Positive User Group Summit Experience I can't help it, I'm a planner. On vacations, I like to map out the itinerary (much to the chagrin of my kids) and uncover hidden gems in a new location. Every year, at this glorious back-to-school time, I absolutely love walking into an office supply store and breathing in the smell of new planners, calendars and small notebooks perfect for list making (who can relate?). If I could get an air freshener for my car, it would smell like an office supply store. And don't get me started on post-it notes.  Whether you can relate to my planning ways or are the type to "just wing it", ...

Hello GPUG community! My name is Lisa Lucas and I am the GPUG Program Manager. For those that know me, or have heard me on a webinar, I am not the most comfortable blogger and I fully admit that standing up in front of a room full of people makes me want to hide. I am far more content behind a set of headphones and a microphone. I am quick to tell first-time presenters that this community is the most forgiving of mistakes, accepting of new names and faces, and THE most interactive of all User Group communities. This community ROCKS and I love being a part of it all – whether I am hiding behind my microphone or building myself up for the inevitable happening ...

On April 1, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published a proposed rule that affects the definition of joint employer status, commonly understood as a situation where an employee is employed by multiple organizations that have some relationship in the management of the employee. The definition of joint employer status today is generally based upon: Whether the two companies employ the same individual Whether each employer is associated with the other To what extent each employer has the right to control or exercise control over the work of the employee This definition has allowed for fewer employees to be considered subject to joint employer ...

In today's’ business world, only the fittest survive. Standing still is a recipe for failure. That’s why Microsoft has evolved. The technology has evolved. And partner organizations have evolved. It’s, therefore, no wonder that the eXtreme365 event for Microsoft technology partners has evolved, too.  The eXtreme365 Evolution In the past, eXtreme was strictly a CRM event. But that’s no longer true. In the past, eXtreme was strictly a technical event. But that’s no longer true either. So if you thought you knew what eXtreme365 is all about, think again! eXtreme365   now offers something for everyone: ERP, CRM, and Power Platform, for Technical ...

Hello, I am trying to find out is there is a way to post non-A/R cash to a G/L in cash receipt entry instead of having to do a separate bank transaction entry. Does anyone know if there is a way to set this up? Thank you.

Has anyone tried to do an upgrade to GP WITHOUT the assistance of one of Microsoft's Business Partners? If so, was the effort successful? By the way, when I say upgrade, I mean upgrading from version 2013 to 2015, etc.

Having issues with batches created on financial and subledger levels: 1. Having an issue deleting an unposted sales batch- any "factors" i need to look out for? does prior year dates play a role 2. Unposted batches from previous year - cannot post- can the fact that we closed the year already prevent a batch to be posted to that year??   thank you

I’M VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT GPUG is a sponsor for the 1 st annual PenniesForTaylor 5K Race this July in Columbia! Taylor, son of #GPUG All*Star, Microsoft Business Applications MVP, and all-around community contributor at InterDyn Artis @Shawn Dorward, MVP , is celebrating his remarkable success a full year since his accident! Taylor’s rehabilitation has been nothing short of remarkable and it has inspired me and many others in the #MSDynGP community, to say the least. That stated, I very much want to support this inaugural race to raise funds for the Shepherd Center (rehabilitation center that he and his family lived in for months) as well as ...

I’m announcing a change with our GPUG Board of Advisors (BOA) that is effective June 1, 2019. Delta Medical Systems' @Michelle Kocher , who has been serving as Vice Chair of our BOA, will take over as the Chair of the Board beginning next month as @Rick Zich has taken up employment in a new industry, and will no longer be a Dynamics GP end user. Having my friend Michelle chairing the GPUG BOA is great news for the community; saying goodbye to my friend Rick after his many years of service with the GPUG BOA is not-so-great news, but certainly understandable. We lose a great GPUG leader but gain a great one for this important leadership role simultaneously ...

http://erpconsultingllc.com/a-get-change-operation-on-table-gl_account_mstr-failed-accessing-sql-data/ I created a test company using a second tenant.  I allowed the system to use the default framework during installation (My mistake).  I then created a new company in order and actually copied the GP tables from on instance to another.  Everything seemed to be working fine when I started getting the error  “ A get/change operation on table GL_account_MSTR failed accessing SQL data ”  clicking on the details button it also gave me  Number of results columns doesnt match table definition.   After doing some research the one thing that stood out was there may ...

Does anyone using the payroll module in the restaurant space use or know of a third party application to identify tipped employees who have not claim​ed enough tips to bring them above the minimum wage that will calculate the amount of the tip deficiency based on the state tipped credit wage and integrate this into GP?​

Question on adding documents to vendor profile. We have 100 plus vendor who have shipping documents linked to them. They get emailed to the vendor whenever we send email of the PO automatically. We have the documents linked to each vendor and they are NOT in a shared folder. We have new shipping guidelines and need to replace the documents linked to the vendor. If there a tool that we can use to automatically replace the old shipping documents with the new documents automatically instead of updating them one by one. Please advise. Thanks Sridha
