    ​How much longer will Management Reporter be supported? We are upgrading to GP2018 and plan to continue using MR.

    The last I heard it will be supported as long as GP is sold.

    The last I saw about this was in 2016 when Microsoft tagged JetReports as the official replacement for MR.  This appears confirmed on JetReports  website - Upgrade from Management Reporter to Jet Reports for GP - Jet Reports

    In 2016, Microsoft announced the end of feature development and support for the aging Management Reporter solution for Dynamics GP. Jet Reports - the official Microsoft designated replacement , offers: Access to ALL GP Data, not just the General Ledger. Data-rich reports in minutes, with no programming required!

    Hi Kevin
    The last released build for MR 2012 was CU16 in 2017..
    Charles is right about the announcement of JetExpress, but Microsoft also confirmed that MR 2012 will continue to stick around as long as their mainstream on-premise ERP systems will be supported :

    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dynamics_financial_reporting/2016/06/20/clarification-on-management-reporter-announcement/

    But that also means there will no future updates on functionality, only hot-fixes due to reported bugs or small adjustments due to new ERP releases.

    Kevin,  thanks for asking.  I also was wondering about MR.
    We are thinking of upgrading to 2018, so I would love to hear how yours went.

    Thanks

    We just made the jump from 2013R2 to 2018 (via 2016 R2) this week with MR, Integrity Data, Greenshades and a server move/SQL upgrade. Our users haven't been complaining (too much :)) and the week hasn't been too hectic.

    If you have users that use Purchasing - Inquiry by Document and you maintain a good bit of history, you probably want to search for and read the GPUG forum post "AP Inquiry by Document GP2018 so slow". We currently have 13 years of history and it takes around a minute an a half to open the window. It was at nine minutes and severely impacting the system performance on Tuesday night before I upped the sever RAM from 16 GB to 20GB and changed MDOP in SQL Server to 1. The company DB that we are running this against is around 33GB. We'll probably be having a discussion in the next month about purging some history. In the meantime, we are having the window re-coded to not prepopulate.

    HI @Kiran Hanumaiah
    Regarding your AP document inquiry, you may want to have a look at the free tool that was developed by @Steve Endow to replace the standard AP inquiry form in GP..

    Hi @Kiran Hanumaiah,

    Two customers have tested the free AP T​ransaction Search window on 150GB company databases and reported that their AP searches completed in under half a second, usually well under 150ms.  And the AP Transaction Search window opens immediately, so there is no waiting required to use it.

    You can find more information, a demo video, and download link here:

    Please let me know if you have any questions or need any assistance.

    Here's a URL from Microsoft on all of their products.  Save it:

    From what I can see here - it follows the version of Dynamics GP you have.
