It’s that time of the year again. While we prepare to celebrate the holidays, be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Milad un Nabi, or simply enjoy a good time off with family and friends, it is also time to begin thinking about 2015. The next major event in sight, of course, is Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2015 Atlanta and who better to open the event that Microsoft’s newly minted Chief Executive Officer, Satya Nadella .
I take a pause in my Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 Developer’s preview series to bring something fun before the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States. Hopefully you find this trick very cool and enjoy it in your workplace.
Typically, there’s nothing exciting about a flight between Atlanta – Minneapolis – Fargo, except this time, I was able to appreciate the art exhibit displayed between T gates and concourse A at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International airport.
One of the new features in GP 2013 R2 is the Microsoft ribbon command layout that we are familiar with in Microsoft Office products.

Okay, so I’m playing around with GP 2013 R2, getting familiar with some of the cool new features in it. I like to be on the leading edge of things. I leave the bleeding-edge stuff to Polino.

Six years ago, when I started blogging on GP2TheMAX, I intended one day to compile my favorite posts into book form and publish it. Well, that day has come. Thanks to the miracle of the interweb, electronic publishing, and Amazon, it is done. I’ve gathered 125+ of what I think are the most helpful blog articles into GP2TheMAX – I Get GP Stuff Done . Click here to get your copy! The articles in the book are organized by module – General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Inventory, etc., with hyperlinks to each article from the Table of Contents to make it easy to navigate to your topic of interest. Of course, I removed the articles from this blog that are contained in the book, else no one may have bought the cow when they could get the milk for free! I want to thank a couple of people for helping me make this possible – Mariano Gomez, MVP , for pushing me to start blogging way back when, and Murray Fife, MVP and fellow IBIS colleague, for showing me the Amazon Kindle publishing ropes. And of course, I have to thank each and every GP MVP out there, for without their help and guidance with numerous GP issues I’ve encountered, I would not have been able to stumble upon the solutions on my own.
