Release Date for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018


    Email | Print

    This week the Microsoft Dynamics GP community converged on Nashville for GPUG Summit. This conference showcases the best and brightest in the GP universe and allows attendees to learn more about the current functionality in Dynamics GP and what is coming down the road.

    The official release date of December 1 was announced at the conference, along with a plan for future releases.

    New versions of GP will now be released annually in December with plans to incorporate features requested by GP users and partners. At this time, there isn’t any intention of building in large, brand new modules or functionality, only improving on the existing features. In fact, over half of the new features included in GP 2018 came from user suggestions. In order to share your suggestions, head to http://connect.microsoft.com/. This will be more and more important as future releases are planned. If there’s something you think Dynamics GP should do, but doesn’t, send in your suggestion.

    As for Dynamics GP 2018, get ready to see improvements in the following areas:

    • Optimize Financials/HRP with more features
    • Comprehensive Doc Attach
    • Power “Suite” Evolution
    • User Experience-everything and anything a user wants to make their job easier
    • Workflow 3.0

    We don’t recommend you upgrade your system until the first service pack has been released. Additionally, if you have add-on products or ISVs (Greenshades, KEY2ACT, Mekorma, etc), you’ll need to make sure they’re compatible with the new release before you upgrade.

    If you have any questions or need any assistance with your upgrade, feel free to reach out to the GP experts at DFC Consultants.
