You can file this under “better late than never”! Our annual deadline is coming up very quickly, as March 31st is the last day you can enter contributions if you are up for renewal in July 2019. For most of us, that is a 1 year period of April 1st to March 31st but with the monthly MVP awards, there are some who have a longer than 1 year first period before renewal. I know I had a longer period last year for my first renewal…
I have had a change of heart since writing this previous post, about how I enter my contributions. In that post, I indicated that I would enter 1 summarized entry for the year with total blogs written to keep things simple. I realized during this past week’s MVP Summit, having had various conversations with product teams, that they prefer details. So, I am now uploading one contribution per blog post and each one has the appropriate categories of contribution on them. I had not done this in the past because the amount of entries using the website to enter them was going to take far too long to be worth it. I wrote 75 blog posts last year, there was no way I was going to put them in individually!
Then I started to play with the PowerShell commands via the API and I’m now a convert. This post is about how to use the MVP API via PowerShell and upload a CSV file with your contributions.

Today’s #TipTuesday is actually a tip for those Dynamics GP customers using eOne Solutions’ SmartConnect. Do you have a situation where you want your users to select which company to integrate into themselves, instead of defining a single company on a map? Well, you can… and what I’ll show you also opens up the possibility of integrating to multiple companies in one map, if you want to.

Or does it? Today’s post is the first #TipTuesday of 2019, and a little bit of an obscure one at that. The short version is, if you use the write-off feature while you are applying payments or credit notes in Dynamics GP Receivables Management, the results display rather oddly on the RM Historical Aged Trial Balance. In fact, at first glance, it seems like the report is actually wrong, but it’s not, and here’s why.

The last couple of #TipTuesday posts have been around some older “new” features – copy journal entry and backout/correct journal entry. Today I thought I would write a quick tip post around one of the lesser known options for creating journal entries in Dynamics GP: quick journals. Next week for my last #TipTuesday of the year, I’ll have a post about the other option which is clearing entries.

Today’s #TipTuesday is the “cousin” of last week’s tip on the Copy Journal Entry feature, the Backout or Correct Journal Entry feature in Dynamics GP. This week’s tip was introduced in GP 8, so it too has been out for quite a while. I love this feature and I find many users are still manually reversing or correcting journal entries without utilizing this. The best part about this is the control – a user cannot backout the same entry twice and the original entry plus the new entries are forever linked with the history of any backout and correction. Doing these types of corrections manually means there is always room for error, always questions of “did this ever get corrected?”, etc.

Today’s #TipTuesday post is about the Copy Journal Entry feature in Dynamics GP. This has been around forever, or it feels like it at least! Despite that, there are still users I’ve encountered over the years that were unaware this was possible. So… this is for you!

Today’s #TipTuesday post is all about the AutoComplete feature in Dynamics GP. There’s not a lot to this but at the same time, there are a few tips I can pass along that you may not have known about!

Last week, my #TipTuesday was a post about how to get a list of write-offs of receivables transactions. I went through what I called the “easy” way but it had a few caveats. It would work in what I believe to be only the most perfect of scenarios. This is the follow up where I’ll walk through in fairly high level detail a way that should be a lot more reliable as it’s based on the apply table(s) in Dynamics GP.

A few months ago, when I first started this #TipTuesday series, one of my first posts was around writing off small customer balances. A reader posted a comment last week with a great question: how do you get a list of invoices written off (for an audit, for example)? What I am going to describe below is what would work if you record write offs using the Write Off Amount field in GP or use the Write Off Documents routine I describe in the blog linked above. The key is this is looking only for documents with a “write-off” amount.

Today’s #TipTuesday post is about the My Reports functionality in Dynamics GP. There was a user question yesterday on the GPUG forums, where someone was asking how to modify their My Reports list. Great question! Here are some tips on getting reports on and off the My Reports list.
