All of us here at Njevtiy are excited for the Biggest GP event of the year, and if you register before June 28th you can get early bird pricing!

The sessions at GPUG in Orlando look to be as good as ever and feature a lot of important presentations on the future of Dynamics GP. Unfortunately, the venue for this year’s event is smaller compared to other years, and the rooms for speaking sessions will be considerably smaller. With that, Dynamic Communities is determining [...]

The Vendor and Customer Combiner and Modifier Utilities in GP

The Vendor Combiner/Modifier and Customer Combiner/Modifier officially became an option in the Sales and Purchasing Utilities menus with the release of GP2015.  Previously, these tools were only available in PSTL.  However, it recently became clear to me that many users are still surprised to find these options.  Whether users have just avoided going into the Utilities menus or their security settings prevented them from seeing this “new” utility, once they discover it, they almost immediately can come up with a list of customers or vendors they have been wanting to fix “forever.”  Do you have more than one Vendor IDs or Customer IDs for the same Vendor or Customer?  Have you had to remember which of the duplicates to use, inactivate one or mark one clearly as Do Not Use?  Now you can use the Combiner utility to merge a source (or the bad) Vendor/Customer into a destination Vendor/Customer (the one you want to keep).  All Work, Open and Historical transactions for the source Vendor/Customer get combined [...]

Microsoft PartnerSource and CustomerSource is changing how Technical Support incidents are handled

Have you been in the Microsoft PartnerSource portal lately? If you have, did you notice the sliding banner that mentions PartnerSource and CustomerSource Technical Support Entry is being Decommissioned? It’s not April 1st or April Fools Day, it’s really happening and it’s happening this Friday! (3/15/19) In an attempt to “modernize” the technical support for Dynamics Partners and Customers, support will not be handled in PartnerSource or CustomerSource. Instead, https://support.microsoft.com will be used for all support issues.  Normally, I would applaud the goal of keeping everything consistent; however, I’m a bit concerned about Partner’s ability to assist their Customers will support issues.  Let me explain. For about 28 years I’ve been in a position where I help GP Customers with support issues. I always kept on eye on questions my customers were asking for a couple of reasons: If I saw a customer was having a large number of support [...]

User Password not recognized by Dynamics GP

We ran into an issue recently with multiple servers where a newly created user could not log into Dynamics GP on an RDP server and received the error user password not recognized by Dynamics GP. The Dynamics GP credentials worked fine on some Windows sessions, and not on others. Even when the password was blanked out in SQL using Management Studio, the user could set a password, but when attempting to log in, the user login was denied. One of the things that we found was that the Dynamics GP ODBC connection was being used as an Excel workbook data source, as well as for Dynamics GP. This seems to be a fairly common practice from the partners that I talked with. What we found was that when the user changed the default database for the ease of use of Excel, it appears to have changed the SQL connection string [...]
