GP Utilities user permissions part 2

Today’s #TipTuesday is short, but also related to a post from a couple of weeks ago where I posted what the minimum permissions required were for using GP Utilities. Coincidentally (or perhaps not?), last week a consultant posted a “tip” on this on the GPUG Open Forum, where there was a dangerous suggestion made, that I’m not sure they fully realized the implication of (at least I hope they didn’t think that one through and posted in haste…).

Flash Fill in Excel

Today’s #TipTuesday post is a Microsoft Excel tip, instead of the usual Dynamics GP tips! I do have a tie-in to Dynamics GP on where you could use this in a pinch in GP from an exported Smartlist, at the end of this post!

Have you ever used Flash Fill? It came out in Office 2013 (as far as I can confirm) and I must say, there are a number of different instances where I’ve found this extremely useful in a pinch to pull data out of some cell that contains more than what you need.

GP Utilities user permissions

Today’s #TipTuesday post is around GP Utilities and what permissions are required. If you are going through any service pack install or upgrade, you might have a lot of workstations that need to be updated! In our case, we just upgraded our Dynamics GP and wanted all hands on deck to help with installs, including some IT team members who didn’t have any GP access. Here’s how you do it and what permissions are required.

GP Tech 2018 – Day 3

Today was day 3 at the Dynamics GP Tech Conference. As in other years, the 3rd day is a half day and many people head on their way back home right after the conference is done. For me, it’s a bonus part of a day off to regroup, review notes, check in on email etc. and get ready for 2 more days of training. I’m going to be taking the eOne Solutions SmartConnect bootcamp Thursday and Friday.

GP Tech 2018 – Day 1+

I’m back in Fargo, ND for the annual Dynamics GP Tech Conference. Today was the first day of the conference (Monday August 20th).

I arrived on Saturday morning, with very little trouble, except some minor stress of believing I might have been bumped from the 2nd leg of my flights to Fargo. It turns out, if you book in a low enough class of ticket, you aren’t assigned a seat until you are at the gate in the airport. No choice of seats, you get what you get and you’re technically on standby until then and could get bumped. Fortunately, I did not, but next time I may not be going for the absolute cheapest fare I can find.

Retained Earnings account is inactive error

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.
