When you call technical support for Dynamics GP, the first question you will likely be asked is, “What version of Dynamics GP are you using?” What can be confusing is that the name of the Dynamics GP system is not necessarily the version number anymore. Here are step by step instructions to quickly find out what version of Dynamics GP you are using.
1) Click on the “?” in the upper right corner of your Dynamic GP screen.
2) Choose the “About Microsoft Dynamics GP” dropdown and you will see this screen. The version number you are looking for is in the top line of the right column (shown here):
So in this example, the version number is 18.2. The product name is actually just “Dynamics GP”. As of the October 2019 release, Microsoft stopped using a year after the name. Yes, that does make it a bit confusing.
Confused? Here is a handy chart:

You could check CustomerSource or have your partner check the Microsoft VOICE system, but in both these scenarios, the system could show the version you are authorized for, not necessarily the one you have currently installed.
