Hello GPUG! I've spoken with a number of people over the past couple of years about a fun Power BI report I was writing for free distribution to the GP user community. Happy to report It is finally available!
This project started in collaboration with the amazing @Abra Gilman as just a spreadsheet showing all of the new features in Dynamics GP, by version, topic, windows, and other categories. I then took the time to analyze the spreadsheet using Power BI, and created some useful reference and exploratory dashboards on top of the data.
My team has this GP What's New (GPWN) dashboard posted in our internal Teams channel, so we can always (and very quickly) look up an answer about a new GP feature for customers looking at going through an upgrade.
We use this as part of our training and also give it to them as part of the UAT phase so they can get used to both the new features AND Power BI!
Once the 18.5 update list comes out this fall, I will add of the updates and features to the data source and have a new version available – again for free download.
You don't need to own a license to get this report, download Power BI Desktop, or view what's inside. It is all totally free. And fun. Trust me.
To help anyone interested in checking these out I recorded 2 really short videos and parked them on the web page that show you exactly how it can be used.
The features described in the Power BI report link directly to docs.microsoft.com where the official GIT repository and documentation is published.
I would appreciate any feedback from people in the community that pick up on using this unique report.
Stay well everyone, and **please get registered for GPUG Summit*** in Orlando this October! I am looking forward to meeting more users there, in-person, and presenting on a variety of other great ways you can utilize Power BI with Dynamics GP as well as other topics! Maybe this dashboard will come in handy on GPUG Trivia nite? Long live #MSDYNGP #GPUG #PowerBI
Thanks to @David Laster, @Abra Gilman and everyone else who helped on this.I am sure the community will appreciate this great resource.Regards
