Visit Website View Our Posts

According to Terry Heley, Escalation Engineer for Microsoft Dynamics GP the second Service Pack for GP 2013 will be released on Wednesday or Thursday of this week. This latest Service Pack comes close on the heels of the first one that was released this past April.  In case you missed Service Pack 1 and would like to learn more about it or download it, take a look at this Microsoft blog post.

Now that you have Service Pack 1 or are at least familiar with it, let’s turn our attention back to Service Pack 2.  In a blog posted last month, Errol Schoenfish, Dynamics GP Product Management Director laid out a few of the features we can look forward to with this update:

  • Web Client releases for the Project Series, Manufacturing Series, and Field Service Series.
  •   ISV Extensibility for WC – Enables customers and ISVs that build forms and controls in Visual Studio to make that functionality available in the web client.
  • Doc Attach – additional functionality that enables attached documents on cards to roll down to transactions while also adding the ability to include attached documents in Emails.
  • Smartlists - enables users to hide the navigation tree giving them a full screen of data.
  • Functional features – including Default Sort Order AP Checks and the ability to Assign Items to All Sites and more.

For Business Analyzer:

  •  Re-writing the app into HTML5 & JavaScript
  • Support connections through the Azure Service bus
  •  Support for Management Reporter Reports
  • Ability to pin reports to the Windows 8 Start Screen
  • Windows 8 Phone App


One of the great things about these more frequent updates is they offer Dynamics GP 2013 users access to more of the features they need now, rather than having to wait 18 months or longer in-between major releases.
