It’s been a long stretch of time since my last post but I tend to only post those things that I think are truly useful to users. Here’s one that heretofore, I never knew existed. I’m implementing the Inventory (IV) and Purchase Order Processing (POP) modules for a client. Their business model calls for the use of only Drop-Ship POs and they asked if there was any way to limit the PO Type that users can enter.

However, I was reviewing the POP training materials supplied by Microsoft this morning, and lo and behold, I ran across a paragraph in Chapter 1 – Overview and Setup, that discusses this very topic
Tuesday, March 4, 2014 – Day 1 Convergence Atlanta 2014 Day 1 is marked by keynotes and product General Sessions.

Dynamics GRC Day 2014 – All about security, risk, and compliace in your Microsoft Dynamics environment
Feel like you don’t have enough conferences and sessions on your schedule for your trip to Microsoft Convergence 2014 Atlanta ?
With the W-2 season upon us, I thought now would be a good time to point out some items that should live in Box 12; but often don’t make it there. I’m not attempting to give any tax or accounting advice, just to share some information with you about Box 12. Box 12 looks simple enough, but oh what a secret she keeps: Recently, I posted an article about common errors regarding retirement account information.
Well, this year was quite the year in the Microsoft Dynamics GP world! Everything from partner readiness training events for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client around the US., to Convergence in New Orleans from which I happened to walk away with a severe case of pinkeye ( side note: what was it with that city?
