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.

As hard as it is to believe, we are already halfway through 2019. To keep from moving too fast and to celebrate all of the great content our User Group volunteers contribute every day, let’s rewind the clock and take time to appreciate the top performing virtual content from 2018. Did you know there are 121,000+ educational content session downloads annually across all User Groups? As a way to highlight some of the amazing success and incredible programs community members shared last year, GPUG is excited to share our Top 5 Downloaded Webinar Recordings . That’s right, the votes are in – YOUR votes. Here are the results: 1. New to ...

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

Greetings everyone! I'm trying a new thing today: my first GPUG blog post. This one is a recap of all of the #TipTuesday posts I wrote in 2018, in one spot instead of a recurring update to a discussion post. I'll do the same with 2019 and then update that blog as the tips continue throughout the year. Dates in GP: https://jenkuntz.ca/2018/01/tips-for-dates-in-dynamics-gp/ Writing off small customer balances: https://jenkuntz.ca/2018/01/write-off-small-customer-balances/ Clearing recurring batch amounts: https://jenkuntz.ca/2018/01/clear-recurring-batch-amounts/ Reversing a Fiscal Year-End Close: https://jenkuntz.ca/2018/02/reverse-fiscal-year-end-close/ ...

Growing companies need to invent themselves to stay ahead of the competition and exceed client’s expectations.  Management also needs an open ear to employees’ ideas to make a difference in client's satisfaction.  A great way to kick off the year is “idea swapping” internally and with clients and prospects. Idea Swapping offers a voice to those who may not be a part of decision making.  This article shares how you gather ideas easily and capitalize on improvements you never thought of in the past. Rules for Idea Swaps: Quantity of ideas is more important than quality (at first) Defer judgement on any ideas until all ideas are raised. Word your ...

​We are looking at purchasing additional licenses.  Can someone tell me if we purchase limited user licenses for our A/P group, will they be able to perform all A/P duties?  What will they not be able to do (on the G/L side) that they can do with a full user license?  If they still would have read only capability on the G/L side, that may be enough access to justify the savings in the difference of prices of the licenses.

March has arrived, and with it news on an exciting event we’re finally ready to announce… Dynamic Communities held its first GPUG event ever outside the North American continent in 2018 with GPUG Amplify South Africa , but we’ve made some significant changes since then and are now ready to announce a User Group World Tour stop in Johannesburg this June! We’ve never compiled an event like this one before, and it will be the technology event for small, mid-market, corporate (SMC) end users as well as partners, we promise! This particular User Group World Tour stop in South Africa’s largest city will remain true to its original purpose, ...

I spent a significant chunk of my day today trying to put out a fire. I'd like to share what I found because I've seen people looking for solutions to this, but not a lot of good answers. This week is payroll week for our organization, so check printing was on the schedule today. Not a good day for GP to start throwing up error messages and booting our accounting personnel. I started receiving emails around mid-morning complaining of error messages and freezing/locked out sessions. My initial assessment was to clean up sessions. I had the users log out of the system, backed up the DB and ran scripts to clean DYNAMICS SY00800, SY00801 and clear out DEXSESSIONS ...
