The End of Dynamics GP 9.0 Support

Are you still running Dynamics GP 9.0 or older? 

If your answer is no, that’s good.  But if you’re running GP 10.0, then you will need to start to think about upgrading in the next year and a half.  Microsoft plans to end GP 10.0 support sometime October 2012.

If your answer is yes, not good!  Okay, so you say: everything is running smoothly, I don’t need to upgrade!  I understand, BUT if you or your VAR (Value Added Reseller) ever needed Microsoft’s support, their reply would be simple:

 “Unfortunately, you are running a version of Dynamics GP that is no longer supported. Please upgrade to a supported version.  If you’re still having the issue after you’ve upgrade, feel free to contact us. “

Don’t let your company fall into this situation.

Side note: Tax and regulatory updates for Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 have been retired as of January 31, 2011

Please, save yourself the frustration and unexpected expense.

First Step to GP 2010 Upgrade

Before calling your partner to inform them that you’re ready for the upgrade… and probably even before you budget the upgrade: review the GP 2010 System Requirements!

If your Microsoft partner is not purchasing the hardware for your upgrade, you and your IT department need to sit down and review (line by line) the requirements on that document because if you’re running workstations that only have 1 GB of RAM, forget about it!

Or let’s say you wanted to get ahead of the game and purchased a 64bit server – guess what?  Now you have to spend more money to have your partner migrate all your FRx reports to Management Reporter (because FRx is not supported on a 64bit machine). 

There’s a small workaround for this (by keeping a separate server for FRx), but you get my point.

Please, save your company the time, money and frustration.  You can access this document in Customer Source.  Microsoft is constantly updating it.

Are auditors harassing you for a copy of GP Manuals?

GP Printable ManualsAre auditors all of the sudden requesting to have copies of the GP manuals?

No fear! This is actually very easy for you to access in GP.  Open up the Dynamics GP application, at the very top right (next to the Address Bar) you will see a Question Mark icon, click on this.  Alternatively, you can use your keyboard and hold ALT + H.

A menu list will drop down. Go down that list and click on Printable Manuals.  There is a manual for practically every module in GP, so save the one’s that apply your company.

Technically, you really don’t need to save these because now you know where to find them!

Tell your auditors the company is trying to be resourceful and environmentally conscious by not printing them.  Let me know how they respond!

Over and out.
