Reset Home Page

Today’s the next instalment in my #TipTuesday series. This tip is about the home page in Dynamics GP.

Wouldn’t you know it? I was trying to think of what I was going to write about for today’s post and a user had an issue with their home page. It was stuck. They couldn’t add or change the panes in it anymore, and the one pane that was visible was maximized without the little icon to shrink it back to normal size. I’ve seen this at other clients too from time to time and have no idea what causes this, but it’s random and annoying!

Here are a couple of ways to fix this issue.

Unnecessary restrictions in report options window

Today’s #TipTuesday post is about Dynamics GP Report Options windows. In most reports in Dynamics GP, there are options windows for handling parameters for reports, whether that be inputting a range of customers, GL accounts, vendors, transaction references etc.

Over the years, I have repeatedly seen examples where customers have put in restrictions that are redundant: an “A to Z” type of restriction. My guess is the user thinks they *have* to put a restriction of some sort in the window for the report to work. However, it doesn’t work that way…

Currency symbols in Dynamics GP

This is another post in my #TipTuesday series. Today’s topic is a commentary on currency IDs as well as a tip on currency symbols.

I doubt everyone will agree with my thoughts on the items below as there are different approaches to configuring Dynamics GP. I think this also has elements of an “it depends” situation whether it makes sense for your organization or not. In any case, here is my take on currency setup & symbols and a couple of my tips I follow when configuring currencies.

View options for multicurrency

Today’s #TipTuesday is another multicurrency tip. This is a simple one but I have still seen many customers with transactional errors simply because the user’s settings are such that it’s easy to mistakenly enter a transaction in the wrong currency.

If your Dynamics GP environment doesn’t have multicurrency enabled, this post is of no value to you! However, for everyone else, when you transact in another currency, this tip may be useful and lead to fewer errors in data entry or analysis.

Transitioning from self-employment

Tomorrow will mark 2 months since I started full time with Energy+ Inc., my new employer and former client. It’s been fantastic so far, I must say… there are no regrets whatsoever! (I wanted to get that out of the way before anyone thinks I’m having some “oh no” moments!)

Here are some of the things I’ve been working on, stages if you will, of the change from self-employment!

What the MVP NDA means to me

When we receive the Microsoft MVP Award, the first thing after “accepting” the award officially is signing a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). Each time our award is renewed, we must acknowledge, accept and sign it again.

That NDA is an individual agreement between Microsoft and ourselves as an individual, not our company or employer, not our family, but us, individually. Additionally, even though all MVPs have signed the NDA agreement, we are not to share NDA information with other MVPs without pre-approval or through authorized NDA channels. I’m getting this part verbatim from the MVP site, by the way, to avoid mistakenly describing something in my own words that aren’t precisely true.

Microsoft Treehouses!

Did you know that Microsoft’s Redmond, Washington campus has 3 treehouses as”outdoor meeting spaces”? They are wired for power and WiFi and per this article on Microsoft’s own blog, they are “part of a larger new system of technology-enabled outdoor districts”.

I saw a tweet from another Microsoft MVP Summit attendee this week sharing pictures about it and I got a chance to tour them myself. I had no idea they existed!
