Back in September, I started a series and honestly figured I would not have taken this long to get to “part 2”! What I’m going to do is make this part of my #TipTuesday series and try to get through it a little bit faster!
Today’s post is what happens during the Depreciation routine in Fixed Assets, from a GL posting flow perspective. The previous post in this series was GL posting flow around additions, in 3 specific areas:

Today’s #TipTuesday is about a message you may receive if you back-date a Fixed Asset retirement in Dynamics GP. I completed a project recently where the client was catching up on some IFRS asset derecognition that, in some cases, had occurred in prior years by the time we got around to doing the retirement in Dynamics GP. While this isn’t an everyday occurrence, if you have to do this yourself, you may get an odd message!

Today’s #TipTuesday is about Checklinks, and specifically about a message you may get if you run file maintenance against Sales > Receivables Open Transaction Files. Some general parts of this blog may apply to other errors in checklinks but I’ll focus on this one message for now to keep it simple.

Microsoft released a “Round 2” update for Canadian Payroll for Dynamics GP. What is a round 2 update? It’s a change that wasn’t in the first update in December! Typically we don’t see this in Canadian Payroll but the CRA made a relatively last minute change to the federal basic personal amount (BPA for short) that necessitated an update. As it turns out, the update does not address that change from the CRA but it does fix 3 other bugs.
Here’s what you need to know and do if you are a Dynamics GP Canadian Payroll user.

In lieu of a #TipTuesday post, today’s post is a heads up for planning for this year end’s tax updates. With the changes to the product names earlier this year – i.e. dropping the “year” number from the name – there are some ripple effects that some customers are only starting to realize will happen this year end. Ideally your VAR/partner has been already communicating some of this to you but if not, this may help you.

Today’s #TipTuesday post is the last in my mini-series of SmartList tips for Dynamics GP. I’m going to walk through a very simplistic example of an export from an Account Transactions smartlist, to Excel, where a macro will do some basic formatting and create a formula for Net Amount.
The method I show below is just one way to do this, and it’s a mini end-to-end example that you can follow if this is your first time using this feature. The intent of SmartList Export Options is to automate repetitive tasks. If you export SmartLists a lot and continually do the same things to the exported file, then read this post to see how you might be able to automate part of your work with that particular export. While the example is simplistic, the options are fairly limitless with what you could do with VBA in Excel!

Today’s #TipTuesday comes to you courtesy of a question on the GPUG open forum about how to copy a budget in Dynamics GP.

Today’s #TipTuesday article is yet another SmartList tip. The past few weeks, I have been focused on small aspects of SmartList since I love this tool so much! Today I’ll be talking about searching & filtering in SmartLists.

Today’s #TipTuesday topic is still related to SmartLists, the subject I’ve been writing a few of these about the past few Tuesdays! My topic is SmartList Favorites, which will be a bit shorter than the others as there is only so much one can write about it!
PS, unrelated side note: being Canadian, it’s killing me inside that I have to keep typing “favorites” instead of “favourites” but I know for SEO and all that stuff if users are searching for the proper term with respect to SmartLists they will be looking for the US spelling. You win some, you lose some, eh? 😉

Today’s #TipTuesday post is the third in my series of tips on using SmartLists in Dynamics GP. The first two posts were around the “basics” as I call them and then printing and exporting. Today’s topic is working with columns.
