New Dynamics GP Forum Opened… and it’s FREE!

I am happy to share this exciting news! A free and open forum for Dynamics GP has been added to https://dynamicsuser.net/

Dynamics User Group (DUG) has been around for over 20 years as a free forum, mostly for AX and NAV. So it’s not new, but they JUST added a Dynamics GP leg to the user group. And why not… I mean, if you know GP’s history, a forum nicknamed DUG… SHOULD have Dynamics GP and this is VERY APPROPRIATE 🙂

I’ll be helping add color and context there as well as other forums, so check it out, post your questions, see what happens!

Community is and should always be free…

Dynamics User Group is the host of an upcoming FREE Dynamics Conference (Virtual/Online).

I am excited to be presenting about GP as well as being part of the keynote for this event! The event is March 16h – March 18th – and yup, it’s Free to register, free to participate and not only SOME of it is free.. it’s all free – easy enough?

GP #LifeHacks 200: Replace Management Reporter with Jet Reports

Some time ago Microsoft announced that Management Reporter was no longer going to get development support.  This meant that it was time to start exploring options to replace MR internally for financial reporting.  No rush, MR isn’t going away soon, but why not explore…

Here is a link with some information about this:

At the same time that the announcement occurred, Microsoft also announced a FREE solution to report our financials… FREE… plus it is EXCEL based.  WHAT?!?!?! Awesome, I know!!

Jet Express (Now called Jet Basics) is 100% FREE and does a great job of utilizing Excel and connecting directly to your GP data source for financial reporting… don’t let FREE push you away… it is a VERY powerful free tool and can replace Management Reporter.

Jet Basics is a great way to get started with financials in Excel.  Jet Reports takes it one step further… and it’s totally awesome!!!

In this series I will break down how to install Jet Reports and how to build out your first simple reports.
