Tuesday, October 14, 2014 After a successful Partner Connections event , Tuesday brought and “All you can digest” Academy Training day, with 100s of sessions across all products.

One of the new features in GP 2013 R2 is the Microsoft ribbon command layout that we are familiar with in Microsoft Office products. It’s kinda cool that this familiar interface is now part of Dynamics GP, even though it takes up more real estate in the window and takes some time to get used to as opposed to the previous icon shapes and positioning.
