New Release in October 2019 for Microsoft Dynamics GP


Email | Print

The new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP will be released during the week of October 7, 2019, and make the branding of Dynamics GP consistent with that of other Dynamics products, such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement. This means that version numbers will no longer be used: instead, Dynamics GP will benefit from continuous updates throughout the year, with new feature releases planned every October.

 

This means that Dynamics GP will join the Modern Lifecycle Policy, which covers products and services that are supported continuously, such as Dynamics 365. By taking advantage of the latest version available of the product, users will benefit from new features as they are released, and Microsoft will be able to provide more support as resources will not be spread over different versions.

 

Just under 40 features have been announced, targeting the following three main areas:

  • Financial enhancements: Additional options and integrations, as well as enhancements facilitating various financial processes will be added, providing more functionality and making the system more user-friendly.
  • Workflow functionality: Several workflow possibilities will be added, including 4 workflows related to security options. It will also be possible to import or export workflows without having to recreate them from scratch.
  • System enhancements: Support for SQL 2019, Windows Server 2019 and Office 2019 will be improved, while more search, filter and sort options will be added to User Access. More than 30 report options will also be available in Report Group.
  • PLUS - Top feature requests: As usual, a selection of top feature requests from the Dynamics GP users will be added to the solution, ensuring that it meets the specific needs of the community.

 

Microsoft is also running a blog series called Dynamics GP October 2019 Feature of the Day showcasing some of these new features, and every week JOVACO will be posting a round-up of the features of the day. Read our first feature roundup here, and keep an eye on JOVACO’s blog for more information on individual features in the coming weeks!
