Today’s #TipTuesday post comes from a GPUG forum question that someone posted recently, answered by Victoria Yudin. It’s a good example of what I like to post as “tips” because it’s pretty small, but useful to know.
The question essentially was around getting an error about an inactive Retained Earnings account when trying to run the year end close routine in the General Ledger in Dynamics GP, and the poster questioning if it’s because “Close to Divisional Account Segments” was marked.

Today’s #TipTuesday is around the permissions required for either creating reports or publishing reports in SSRS. These are permissions as they relate to Report Builder 3.0 at least, as I haven’t tested that the exact same is true via Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS). I assume the same applies but haven’t tested that myself so YMMV.
Also of note: this article is purely on the permissions required in SSRS itself, I am not touching on the data side but obviously the users who are previewing data here will also require the correct access to the data depending on what your data sources are.

I’m starting a series that might literally take months to get to any semblance of “done”! This series will follow a purely personal project, in terms of the content of the app I want to try to develop (golf stat tracking), using the Microsoft PowerApps platform. That being said, I will be tagging it as a “business” post since the concepts likely will translate well to anyone learning PowerApps for their organization.
Personally, I hope through the process of learning the PowerApps platform that I may envision ways in which I can utilize this at work, with or without integration to our Microsoft Dynamics GP environment. At this point, it’s hard to say how this may be useful, but perhaps as I work with the capabilities, I may see possibilities to pursue!

Today’s #TipTuesday I *swear* I’ve blogged about before but for the life of me, I cannot find it in my posts. So… I’m documenting it here because I ran into this again after our latest Dynamics GP upgrade and had to search for my own documentation to find the details of the fix.
This tip is on how to remove the “day of the week” name from the date format on Management Reporter (MR) reports, if using the @datelong autotext code.

Today’s #TipTuesday contains some Lookup window tips. After last week’s tip on finding a shortcut to the Available to Promise window, I realized there are some hidden gems on Dynamics GP Lookup windows that are often overlooked.

I wrote this on a plane because I realized I was heading on vacation and hadn’t yet written a #TipTuesday post yet. I’m on a roll now and didn’t want to skip a week!! So, this is pretty short, and maybe everyone else knows about this but it was new to me so I thought I would share.

This post was somewhat hard to write, to find the right tone, to express my feelings succinctly enough without seeming ungrateful for what I’ve just been awarded.
Yesterday, I received the official news from Microsoft that I had been awarded with an MVP Award for the 2018/2019 period, my first “renewal”. Leading up to yesterday, there were a tremendous amount of messages, emails and social media threads among the various channels that MVPs communicate in (some official, some not) where people were announcing they weren’t getting renewed. Included in this were several within my own award category, Business Solutions, within my own peer group of those focusing on Dynamics GP.

Today is Canada Day and I’ve been fortunate to get the official notification earlier today that I’ve been re-awarded for the next year. Woohoo! It’s a great way to start Canada Day!

Today’s #TipTuesday has nothing to do with Dynamics GP. I was working from home the other day and was connecting to the office via Remote Desktop Services. I have a small tip to share with those of you that do the same and have multiple monitors at home.

I’m going to file this post under “I’m glad I was late writing it” because in the time that we were notified of a tax change, to the time Dynamics GP tax update code was ready for download, to yesterday’s news that Ontario has cancelled their planned update, things have changed!
