reIMAGINE 2014 – Day 4

The last half of day 3 and the first part of day 4 was post-conference training that you could sign up in advance for.  I saw there was a deep-dive on Reporting and I thought “cool”… I feel a bit behind on some of the reporting tools and surely could use some in-depth training on things like SSRS.  What I neglected to pay attention to, was the deep dive covered about 7 different tools. That should have tipped me off to the fact that we were not covering anything in depth.

reIMAGINE 2014 – Day 3

Day 3 technically is the last day of the conference, unless you are taking some of the post-conference training. All of the content was at the Holiday Inn since there were fewer sessions overall. There were 9 sessions + the work room 1 on 1 things again.

reIMAGINE 2014 – Day 2

Day 2 of the reIMAGINE 2014 conference was a full day of sessions, followed by an evening keynote and pub crawl through downtown Fargo.

This day they swapped the locations of some sessions and had Sales & Consulting at the Holiday Inn, and Marketing & Development at Microsoft. I was initially a bit concerned that I would want to go to content at both places but the Development sessions proved to be more technical than my expertise, so I stayed at the hotel all day again.

There were 23 sessions at the hotel and 15 sessions at Microsoft, not including the work rooms where you have some 1 on 1 opportunities. Lots of choice again.

reIMAGINE 2014 – Day 1

The first day of any conference, I find you’re spending a bit of time purely getting used to being at a conference again. Where are the rooms? What sessions do I want to see? What did I forget in my room? When are the meals and breaks?

Yesterday was no exception to that… even though I’ve been here many times now, this year the content was split between venues: some at Microsoft and some at the Holiday Inn. That meant logistics, and thinking about your agenda and reason for being here. Day 1 was a logical split (in my opinion) with Sales and Marketing presentations at Microsoft and Consultant and Developer sessions at the Holiday Inn. Personally, I tend to mix and match those two content types. So that worked for me.

reIMAGINE 2014 – Day before the fun begins!

It’s Sunday November 9th, 2014 and the day before what arguably might be the biggest Dynamics GP partner conference yet… perhaps an exaggeration but with a new release pending in 3-4 weeks (GP2015), there’s tons of excitement around this year’s conference.

Project Accounting mystery COGS account

A while back, a long-time client of mine told me about an issue they were having that they couldn’t explain. No problem, I said, let me have a look.

I come from the school of “everything has a reason, things don’t just happen by themselves”. Wellllll….

I can blog again! Woohoo!

I haven’t been able to blog for a while, or at least not unless everything is text only. My website permissions were a little messed up and it’s taken me a few months to find the time to fix it.

I’ve now moved to a new webhost and all appears to be running smoothly. Yay!

I’m looking forward to getting my pile of blog topics off my desk again… :)

For those that follow me via RSS, there isn’t any change in the feed URL so you should get this post the same as the old stuff!

Canadian Payroll – Sept 1, 2014 tax update (Ontario only)

Well, the “no mid-year tax update” euphoria didn’t last too long… :)

As a result of the June 2014 Ontario election and subsequent budget in July 2014, there are tax changes, affecting Ontario only and only affecting those with incomes > $150,000. The tax changes are effective for September 1, 2014 tax tables, but are retroactive to January 1, 2014.

This update is somewhat optional as you can read below, and organizations need to decide how many of their employees it affects and if the employee(s) affected can authorize manually changing the withholding for the last 4 months of the year to accommodate the change instead of putting a new service pack in now.

Canadian Payroll – No 2014 Mid Year tax update!

Woohoo!

This isn’t new news if you have heard this through the grapevine already but for those of you who haven’t heard, there are no tax changes for 2014 mid year in Canadian Payroll for Dynamics GP.

Enjoy your Canada Day free of service pack stress :)

(Shortest post ever!)
