    Email | Print

    Just released on December 1 2017, Dynamics GP 2018 promises an array of epic feature enhancements. According to a recent Microsoft announcement, we should expect to see an uptick in the release cadence of their ERP products with a new version coming out yearly.

    Here’s a look at the Dynamics GP road map:

    It’s important to consider how your organization fits into this picture.  If you’re running GP 2010 or an earlier version it’s especially important because your version of GP is no longer supported by Microsoft.  If your business is growing and changing, an upgrade is an opportunity to redefine your business processes, deploy new functionality and start taking advantage of advanced analytics tools like Power BI. Whatever your scenario, start learning about the new features you’re entitled to in this guide from Microsoft, “GP 2018: What’s New."

     

    Key Features

    Topping the list of new features worth celebrating in Dynamics GP 2018 are the following.

    1. Document Attach

    Document Attach has evolved since Dynamics GP 2013 with new functionality being added with every release. Now there are new windows where files can be added, additional ways to view and modify attachments, and new drill back functionality.

    1. GP Web Client

    A few changes were made to the web client that make it A LOT easier to use.

    1. SmartList Favorite Password protection

    Users have the option to put a unique password on smartlist favorites.  This will allow for tighter controls as each password can be different instead of a system set password.

    1. Workflow

    Dynamics GP 2018 features significantly enhanced workflows.  There are new workflows around GL Accounts, purchasing (Receiving, Invoice Match) and Payables plus reminder emails.

     

    As a current Dynamics GP customer, if you are up to date with the Microsoft maintenance plan purchased at the time of initial implementation, then you are entitled to the latest version of the software at no additional charge. Your Microsoft partner provides services to upgrade the objects, customizations and reports, deploy  new functionality and train end-users on the new system.
