New Dynamics GP Pricing Announcements

Go check them out at –

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/gp/archive/2012/07/11/napkin-pricing.aspx

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/gp/archive/2012/07/11/new-pricing-for-microsoft-dynamics-gp-2013-announced-today.aspx

A few highlights:

  • This pricing announcement is for the new price model called Perpetual.  It’s buying it outright like we do today.
  • Subscription pricing will be a limited pilot and will have a similar structure to this new pricing.
  • This simple structure gives you a unique opportunity to sell differently.
  • There are two actual logins for Microsoft Dynamics GP when we launch.
  • For customers to get GP 2013, they have to ask for it.  They will not automatically get it.

Auto Post for Dynamics GP Batches while GP Turned Off! Post Master Enterprise

 

I noticed an article by Steve Endow introducing a new feature added to the post master utility and I expected this to be an awesome feature, but honestly I never expected to be such a change.

Andrew Dean has finalized developing a new enhancement to their Post Master utility to be able to post batches automatically using a windows service that is always running, with the ability to drop reports using PDF into a user specific directory!

I saw this in Andrew video below, and as a developer I been sure that all such stuff is doable if GP was running, however the new ERA now is having all these features while GP closed, enjoy watching the video below:

Product Suggestion: eConnect POP Tax Engine

David Meego - Click for blog homepageOver the last few weeks, Mark Polino, MVP over at DynamicAccounting.net has been posting articles asking you to vote for Product Suggestions using the Microsoft Connect site.

Well now it is my turn….

 

History

To start with we need a little bit of history:

When the Purchase Order Processing module in Great Plains Dynamics was first written it did not support taxes. You could enter a tax amount manually, but there was no support for Tax Details and Tax Schedules and no automatic calculation of taxes.

When Australia introduced the GST (Goods and Services Tax) in July 2000, a tax engine was required so that taxes could be calculated automatically and included on Purchase Orders (and flow through to the Receivings Invoices). To make this happen by the July 2000 deadline, I was contracted my Great Plains Australia while I worked for Winthrop Dexterity Consultants to write support for POP Taxes into Dynamics v5.50 as well as support for the Business Activity Statement and PAYG Payment Summary reports. Some of the other features needed for Australian GST were coded by the development team in Fargo and between us we had a Dynamics v5.50 GST release ready in time to be deployed at customers before the new tax system went live.

When Great Plains Dynamics and eEnterprise v6.00 was released, the POP Tax engine had been updated and was now part of the core product for all countries.

 

eConnect

So, now we come to eConnect.

When the eConnect SOP nodes were created there was no automated Tax Engine. The Tax data had to be calculated outside of eConnect and then passed in with the rest of the document. Later a SOP Tax Engine was created. This engine duplicates the functionality of the Dexterity tax engine and allows the tax to be calculated based on the Customer and Item Tax Schedules.

When POP Taxes functionality was added to the core product, it was never added to eConnect. The ability to integrate Tax data has been added, but to this day there is still no automatic POP Tax Engine.

I have seen numerous requests on support cases for a POP Tax Engine and the answer has always been the same:

  • There is no POP Tax Engine.
  • Calculate the Taxes yourself and integrate the resulting data.
  • Vote on the Product Suggestion on Microsoft Connect.

I have had two of these cases in the last couple of weeks. But when I look at the Product Suggestion there are only 5 votes logged for the suggestion.

Considering that I found 45 cases in the support database with a quick search, I find the low count really surprising. This is what prompted this article.

 

Request 

If you or anyone you know wants this functionality, get them to vote using the link below. Go to the link and click on the green up arrow: 

While I can’t make any promises that if you vote, we will get a POP Tax Engine at any time in the future. I can guarantee that if you don’t vote, we will never get a POP Tax Engine. At least it will show if this is worth pursuing at all.

 

If you need more information about using Microsoft Connect, please see Scott Stephenson’s article on the topic:

 

If you or anyone in your organisation or organisations you work with would like this functionality PLEASE make the effort and vote for the suggestion.

Thanks

David

Copy Paste JEs from Excel to Dynamics GP

Mohammad R. Daoud has built a fantastic utility (based on a suggestion by MVP Mark Polino)

His utility allows you to copy a JE from excel directly into the JE window in Dynamics GP, how cool is that ?!

Mail him for a copy

In the past Rubal had built a utility requested by one of our customers that allowed you paste JE’s with AA information into a custom JE entry window. However, having something that works with the default JE window is fantastic!

Also if you dig excel for data entry with Dynamics GP – you should check out – the excel data entry templates that ship with SmartConnect. SmartConnect has templates for GL, PM, PO, SOP, Inventory – and with excellent VBA validation, and SQL connection to check if an account/item exists and so on.
