Management Reporter Training

    ​I am hoping someone can point me to a good training class for Management Reporter.  We are based in Columbus and are looking for something local.  We are currently in GP 2016 and Management Reporter 2012.  We use numerous columns and trees in our reporting but would like to have an expert "show us what it can do" so we can use the tool to build more reports ourselves.

    Any suggestions you have would be appreciated.

    Please no calls from third party reporting systems, etc.  I would rather get information on here and be able to research and follow up myself.

    Thank you,

    I see that you are already a GPUG member.  Part of your membership includes webinar recordings you can watch.

    Click on the "learn and engage" button on the left side of the GPUG web site. Then click "Webinar Recordings", then scroll down and expand "Browse Recordings by Topic" then click the MR & FRx

    There are at least six pages of results that come up that way.

    Who is your GP partner?  Maybe they could put together a class tailored for you.  If not, I can recommend a couple of partners who could help you.

    ​That is a very good suggestion David.  I also suggest looking at the MSX group.  I have taken a few of their training sessions before and they are very good.  I also could provide you with the Microsoft training manual that I received from our partner when I started to work with Management reporter.  Just send me an email at patty.brown@crugroup.com and I'll send it to you.

    ​Hi Jessie,

    My company has arranged for a Management Reporter class in early December with our VAR based out of Columbus. I can reach out to you after the class and let you know how it went.

    Thanks,

    I completely agree with the comments on MSX Group.  At the Summit meetings their sessions and answers are always spot on.  I have seen in the regular GPUG blog that they will provide an answer to a specific question that is posted involving MR.

    ​MSX group are former Microsoft people and are experts in MR. Talk to Derek, Nick and Noah. They were all at the GPUG Summit last week and had many great sessions to attend.

    As noted as a GPUG member there are many webinars. Monthly there is a R & B Fridays - Financial Reporting and Budgeting. It's an open discussion (free to GPUG members) in which you can ask any specific questions you may have on MR. They (generally MSX Group) will run through demos and examples. The next one is November 10.

    There is also a GPUG Event Guide received via email that lists all the upcoming training (may be additional costs) and free webinars you can attend.

    As a GPUG member you are in the right place to get lots of help and information!
