There's a great deal of ERP rumor & innuendo out there these days, and I doubt very many in the GPUG community have yet to hear about it - in fact, if you're reading this you've probably been inundated with it!  Microsoft has been pushing their SaaS strategy diligently, and they want you to know about it (and seriously consider it), regardless of your interest level.  It's a topic that will reach your desk, one way or another. That stated, GPUG has decided to tackle this topic head-on.  Last October in Orlando, I asked four trusted partner friends if they would talk freely & openly about Dynamics 365 Business Central during a Summit roundtable event.  ...

We are beginning to enter 2020 W-4 info into the tax maintenance screen in GP, Payroll. When I select the Federal Filing Status drop-down box, I do not have a selection for Married Filing Jointly. I only have Married or Married Higher W/H. Should there be a selection for Married Filing Jointly in the drop-down box

I was wondering if anyone has migrated their GP system from FIFO Periodic to FIFO Perpetual.  We are in the process of doing so and would appreciate any input on the best way to book this to GL.  I am planning on updating this in SQL so we don't have to un-allocate all the items before we run the process in GP. Thanks, Gre

I need to reprint a series of check remittances to include all invoices and credits that were included on the payment and be able to export to excel.

I'm posting here too, although I just added a post to the OPEN FORUM.  I Just wanted to share something that I realized recently, about the "Last release" of MR. Even though we know Management Reporter isn’t being enhanced any longer, we were told there would be additional 'hot fixes'.  But did you know there still are changes being made to CU 16?   We usually make sure someone is on Management Reporter 2012 CU 16…and call it good…but there have been 7 CU 16 releases! So if you want the latest fixes, make sure you are on 2012.16.0007 to be on the most recent (as of today). The latest MR update was released in November of 2019 and made MR compatible ...

I have now had multiple users of GP ping me on adding the 1099 Box to their 1099 SmartLists checks for reporting this year. The 1099 Box does not appear as an option in the SmartLists in GP right now, but IS in the view in SQL already.  Now this may have been a timing issue where in the SmartList was created before the 1099 Box was added to GP.  The reason it is not there now is unknown to me, but there is a work around. This works similarly in SmartList Designer (that comes with GP), but I have SmartList Builder installed, which is an eOne product. Adding the box is fairly simple, and you can use a similar method to add it to Payables Transactions by 'Modifying' ...

Hi GPUGers - Hard to believe we are halfway through the first month of 2020! Resolutions have been made, decorations have been put away, and cookie tins have been replaced with bowls of oranges and apples. Everyone is talking about kicking off the year eating healthier, sleeping more and growing their knowledge base so they can be the best in their job role.  While I can't help you with the first two, I can point you to some areas to grow your Microsoft Dynamics GP understanding and expertise: 1) Check out our NEW   Getting Started pages (geared towards end users, login if you are a Member)  - it's an awesome place to get a refresher on what our Community ...

Two of my clients have now had this issue.  Both of these clients have been upgraded over the years and started on GP before GP2013. After the 2019 YE Update, Professional Services Tools Library is no longer working for them.  When clicking on the shortcut they receive the error: InValid Versions! This version of Professional Services Tools is only compatible on GP 2016     After by-passing this error they click on the tool they want to use and receive this message:   The issue is a bit of a pain to fix, but not too painful. Close GP Go to Control Panel>Programs and Features (Or Add Remove Programs, depending on Windows Versions) ...

Hello, We have a concern regarding the JE number sequence.  We noticed that if JE 100001 is posted the next JE would be 100003 but no recorde of JE 100002, does anyone know why this would occur and how we can view the missing JE in the system? Thank you

​I'm looking for a solution for a customer payment portal via the web.  All in one place a customer can download invoices, statements, as well as generate payments via credit card or ACH. We use Blue Moon for credit card payments currently and Service First is our credit card provider.  Does anyone know of a solution that is out there where you can taylor to your own Credit Card provider for payment options and the portal is already built for GP?

I have a vendor that received a payment but the payment was never applied to an invoice.  The vendor has paid back the over payment.  How do I apply this?

It's been a few weeks since User Group Summit and like many of you who attended, I always experience a "blue time" when returning back to work and home. It's like planning for a vacation or a big party for months and the adrenaline is incredibly high leading up to and during the event but eventually there's a course correction when it's all over. But the connections you made and the training you enjoyed doesn't have to end in Orlando. The excitement and learning can continue even after you turn off your out of office replies. You may have seen and heard this phrase during User Group Summit that I'd love to share as a reminder: Your Community Is Always ...

To briefly summarize Dynamic Communities User Group Summit, a four-day conference with 7,000 attendees, including hundreds of partners, is tough to do. Yet, as we think about the User Group Summit, there are three prevailing themes that come to mind. Watch our summary from #ThePayrollOffice MICROSOFT’S MESSAGE: GP ISN’T GOING AWAY Microsoft’s consistency in its commitment to product lines and surrounding strategy (for two years in a row) was a refreshing change. Typically, we hear an announcement that sends the users, ISVs and partners spinning. We came out of Summit with no major shifts or announcements to the lineup: Dynamics GP isn’t going away and ...

I'm pleased to announce that the GPUG Board of Advisors has voted unanimously, 8-0, to add two new Board members from outside North America to its ranks effective November 1, 2019. GPUG added an annual end user event in Johannesburg, South Africa during 2018 and then another annual end user event in Melbourne, Australia during 2019, and the newest appointed members are from these countries. At GPUG Summit in Orlando earlier this month, I finalized our General Session that Thursday morning with a brief ‘community update’ and the last item I mentioned was these impressive additions. To say that I’m excited to begin working with these two is an understatement ...
