As a follow up to my post yesterday (see Microsoft Dynamics GP backups with Windows Azure Blob Storage Service ), an issue has been identified with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 running on SQL Server 2014 when choosing Microsoft Azure storage as the destination for the backup. You will receive the following warning message: The SQL Server version that you are using does not support backing up or restoring your database from Microsoft Azure storage

One of my customers reported that when they transfer the Purchase Requisition to Purchase Order, the cost they specified in the requisition for their items is not being transferred to the purchase order.
Thinking about this subject, can’t find a company who does not follow the standards in their procurement process, everyone brings 3 quotations from 3 different suppliers and selects the best fit from requirements and pricing! I found this process on Connect requested since 2010 with very limited votes! I would kindly ask for your help in voting and getting this scheduled soon, below the description of the product suggestion: I think Dynamics GP is one of the few applications in the ERP world that does not have the request for quotation functionality, the process is like this: – RFQ (enter details for items willing to purchase) – Select one or more vendors and the system should print separate RFQ for each (and prepare the system to receive responses from each) – Receive quotes from Vendors and update on system – Compare vendor’s prices against same lines in RFQ – transfer one of the quotes to Purchase order Note: The is the simplest cycle possible and there are many other advanced consideration that can be added later on like: – Issuing PO against more than one vendor quote for same RFQ – Ability to update quotation with new discounts and data maintaining original information and changes (quote version control).
In part 2 of the series , I delivered a brief primer on the service architecture in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and how you are able to consume services natively created with Dexterity. There are two types of services that can be created: services that wrap existing windows and forms functionality, i.e., creating a customer; and services that can wrap around existing sanScript procedures, i.e, retrieving customer information.
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. Unlike at the Tampa Summit, this year I did not participate as a trainer and rather decided to spend most of the morning catching up on work and prepping for my first session on Wednesday.
