Earlier this month, at the GP Tech Conference in Fargo North Dakota, Microsoft revealed the latest version of Dynamics GP, which will be called “GP Next,” and announced its release for October 1st.   At the annual GPUG Summit that will be held in Orlando from October 13th-18th, we will have the opportunity to dive deeper into the details of the new features that will come with GP Next.

In addition to a long list of almost 40 new features, it was also announced that the new Dynamics GP will no longer associate a version number with it, adopting the Modern Lifecycle Policy similar to the way they run Dynamics 365. Existing versions of Dynamics GP will follow the current lifecycle of timelines. However, with the October 2019 release and the impending move to the Modern Lifecycle Policy, customers will need to accept one of the three yearly releases to stay current on their software.

Of the 35+ announced new features, the ones I’m most excited about include:

  • Workflow for security changes
  • Journal Entry screen will show the user who posted
  • 100 Character-long description for payable transaction entry
  • Ability to sort Companies in User Access
  • Copy Report Options (which will be helpful if you want to update the names of your report options or just create new ones)
  • Workflow import and export for items not related to the environment, such as approvers
  • Web Client General Ledger Copy Paste

If you would like to learn more about these features hands on, please join us at the GPUG Summit in Orlando. If a trip to Orlando is not in the cards for you right now, watch our blog space here for more updates.

One Response to ““GP Next” is the Future of Dynamics GP”

  1. The name of the next release is just Microsoft Dynamics GP. No year. GP Next is just the code name for the next release.
