Today’s #TipTuesday is another non-product tip, but I’ll be knee-deep in sessions at GPUG Summit by the time many of you read this, so in the interest of a “simpler” topic, this is what I’ve come up with!
Today is the first “full” day of the 2018 GPUG (& other UGs) Summit. I get the sense that a lot of users tend to miss out on the news or updates because they aren’t on Twitter, or other social media sites where the news and information flow is often shared first. There are a lot of you out there reading this that may not know or care what a hashtag is, or know what you can do with it.

Today was a “long” day but a short day at GPUG Summit. This year’s conference is in Phoenix, Arizona. I originally wasn’t planning on attending, so my time here is short due to the length of my stay being primarily a factor of the cost of the flights I could find to get here!

Great news! Dynamics GP documentation is starting to make its way onto the docs.microsoft.com platform. That is AWESOME! So many of us have been vocal about the lack of updated documentation and this is a good first step about addressing that IMHO.

Today’s #TipTuesday is a continuation of last week’s first post on Two Factor Authentication, 2FA for short. Today I am not getting into examples, as I found an interesting article last week after posting my first blog, that illustrates some of why 2FA and password managers are important. Instead of trying to document what already exists, I focused on some other things in this post and end this with where to get setup information for some common sites.

Last week, Dynamics GP 2018 R2 was released and the first thing I did was check out and set up the replication with the Intelligent Cloud. I’ve tried a few more things, with somewhat minimal success, which means I need to do some more learning around how to navigate Business Central.
In the meantime, here are a few tips around replication that I have figured out, and where I’m at with some other stuff. I’m not finding a lot yet in the way of documentation so at this point I am trying things and trying to figure it out on my own.

Great news! GP 2018 R2 was released today, October 2, 2018. There are tons of posts on the official Dynamics GP blog about the features through their feature of the day series.
I downloaded and installed it on my Surface Go, so I could try it on this device as well as check out the new features. After I was done, I went through the Intelligent Cloud setup to see how it looked.

Today’s #TipTuesday is a topic that likely needs multiple posts to handle it properly. In fact, as I write this, it’s already long before I even get into examples and “how to” on common sites so this will be a mini-series in my #TipTuesday series (a series within a series?!). Long story short: with all of the data breaches and hacks out there, the best thing you can do to protect your logins is to turn on Two Factor Authentication (2FA). There are multiple names for this and multiple acronyms most of which generally have the same or similar meanings. (The other most common term you might hear is MFA (multi-factor authentication).)

Today’s #TipTuesday is an oldie but a goodie: Advanced Lookups. These have been around as long as I can remember, but they are one of those hidden things in Dynamics GP that many users don’t realize exists.

Here’s a cool little Excel tip for #TipTuesday. Have you ever had a column of information in Excel and wanted to get a distinct / unique list of values from one of your columns of data? I learned a new thing last week doing just this, and, surprise, it wasn’t “create a pivot table with that column”!

TL;DR summary: I like it!
I have had the Surface Go for just over 1 week now. I had been interested in it since it came out and did a lot of research on my recent trip to Fargo comparing US prices vs. CAD prices and comparing the “unique” build configuration that Costco was selling vs. what everyone else had.
Yes, I’m one of those…
