Whether you’re new to Dynamics GP, or have been using it for years, occasionally, you probably come across a question or issue you’re not sure how to solve. When that happens, you usually have two choices. One, Google your question until you find the answer published on a webpage hidden somewhere in the depths of the Internet. Or, if you don’t have the time, energy or patience to find the answer by searching online, you can always ask your Microsoft partner. And, while I’m sure your Microsoft partner will be more than happy to help you resolve the issue, we all understand sometimes you would rather try to fix the problem yourself, instead of enlisting outside help. For those instances, I would like to suggest another helpful resource.
Because Dynamics GP has been a popular business management system for decades now, a vibrant online community has sprung up around it. Somewhat overlooked parts of this online community are the Dynamics GP forums where users can go to ask each other questions and get the help with their software. So, today I thought I would take a few moments and introduce you to a few of the available online forums. Hopefully they prove useful to you the next time you find yourself faced with a Dynamics GP question you don’t know the answer to.
