    Brian,

    Project Accounting and Preventative Maintenance are a couple of areas that we are currently interested in for potential topics.

    These are great suggestions Thomas,

    If we can't find someone to cover Project Accounting, I could definitely split my session into two parts.  40 minutes for member showcase and 20 minutes on Introduction to Project Accounting.  I am heavily involved with Project Accounting here at Connexus Energy and we average about 5000 projects per year.  I definitely can explain how to setup the module and how things work with it.

    We don't use Dynamics GP's Preventative Maintenance module, but we do use a third party add-on for our PM's called Cogsdale that is installed within our GP setup.  If anyone in the Minnesota Chapter knows the GP PM module or knows of a resource, please reply to this thread.

    Thank you,

    Good morning,
    I have a topic that my company is interested in:  Landed Cost.  Looking for more information, anyone that has set it up?  How to use it in GP?  Etc.

    Thanks!

    I second this one.  We've looked at this in the past and it never made it to the top of the priority list.  I'm curious how labor intensive it is.

    Hello Tanya and Curt,

    I have updated the agenda to include a round-table discussion!  We will be sure that one of the topics we address during the round-table is landed costs.  I know there are many users out there who have this configured, and I would imagine you will be able to connect with someone at this meeting to have further discussions with.  Connexus considered using Landed Cost during our implementation in 2013 but we did not end up implementing it.

    Thank you,

    I've run into a recent pain point that I wouldn't mind discussing if anyone else used them.  Reason Codes for inventory Adjustments or Variances.  In theory, I was really looking forward to this new functionality with GP2016.  Its become a pain point that I'm tempted to no longer use unfortunately.

    If anyone has any experience with these, I'd love to talk about it at the round table. 

    Thanks.
