Hey, look at that… another year just whooshed by! Time for another post of what I resolve to do this coming year and how I fared this past year.
Welcome to my website! My name is Jen Kuntz & I have created this blog to share some of what I've learned over the years! What you'll find are tips, tricks & various thoughts related to using or implementing Microsoft Dynamics GP & other related products.
As most of my blog topics start, this begins with fairly standard question from a client asking why their taxes are not defaulting on their Purchase Order in Dynamics GP.
This situation is something I see a lot of in various clients:
The answer nearly always ends up with some variation of one of these:
It’s that time of year again… and the tax table updates / year end updates for Dynamics GP2010 and Dynamics GP2013 were just released, for English installs. For French installs, they are hoping for early next week.
Some days I feel like I’m on a game show, where troubleshooting is a contest… “I’ll take strange GP errors for $400 Alex!”.
Today is one of those days!
One of my clients imports in SOP and Payables transactions via eConnect and then uses Postmaster Enterprise to post the batches. Today one of the QA users was doing some testing of GP and their integrations after a recent database refresh from the production company. She calls me and says something isn’t working right. Postmaster keeps logging posting errors but the batches look fine and nothing has changed except refreshing the environment.
Right on time, Microsoft announced the release of Dynamics GP2015 yesterday (December 1, 2014).
Awesome! Tons of new features and continued advancement in integration of data and possibilities for applications.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks for all of your help and effort on our project. Your knowledge and insight have been indispensable!
Thanks for the tutorial yesterday. What you showed me cut my process down from a day or two – to just a few hours! Thank you!
Thank you Jen. You have done an outstanding job. I’m really glad we found you!
I am happy you are on the team. Doubt we could get this done without you!
Have I told you that we are very happy to have you on the team?
