"Print to Screen" Size Change
Why oh WHY do I have to resize the print preview window every time I run a report to the screen? This seems like a simple fix and would save 1000's of click and drags... maybe even every day! :)
Speed up GP RECONCILE and CHECK LINKS
Issue: Check links and reconcile takes far too long to run
If the business logic were pulled out of dexterity and these were re-implemented in SQL using set based operations, this would transform a very painful aspect of running GP on large databases.
Thanks for the suggestion. We will consider this one (along with your other suggestion) for a future release.
Interface GP with 64-bit Outlook
Have both clients work with 64-bit Outlook instead of having to depend on the wonky and completly inadequate GP mail client. A lot of email capabilities related to the contacts and formatting is lost.
May I suggest making GP a 64-bit program if it will ...
Thank you for the suggestion, we will look at this for a future release.

Allow unattended scheduling of CHECKLINKS and RECONCILES
The ability to get GP to run a check links and reconcile automatically via a schedule would transform the admin of larger sites.
I would love to reconcile our SOP and POP each night and IV over weekends, automatically and have the resulting reports written to a directory for me t...
Support Office 365 Two Factor Authentication
When a user has two factor authentication enabled in Office 365, they are unable to use email functionality from within GP. GP will continuously prompt for exchange credentials. Thus, if a user(s) need to email from GP they have to remove the two factor authentication. This could lead to some IT ...

Native PDF Support
In order to generate PDFs from Dynamics GP, Adobe Acrobat Pro must be installed. It's expensive, and an administrative hassle, to have to license this for users just to be able to print and email PDFs from Dynamics GP. Microsoft Word has had the ability to natively generate PDFs for years now....
Disable system print dialog box when printing a Word Template
When printing a Word Template to printer it automatically goes to the Windows default printer. This is because GP tells itself to print to Word, but cannot tell Word what printer to select.
If it is not possible to bridge the gap between Word and GP to allow the printer to be changed from defau...

Allow resize of all windows
This has been a problem with GP for decades. Many of the windows do not allow you to resize them properly. For instance some windows with long lists of items, you can not make the window larger. When you do the grid of rows do not get larger with the window. Not a good user experience.
Fix Home Page Bug
Something happens in GP where users are no longer able to customize their home page. I believe this problems stems from missing records in SY08100. When missing records are restored the user can customize the home page again.
This is fixed in 18.3 October 2020 Fall Release
Replace CHAR Data Type with VARCHAR
Dynamics GP stores text fields using the CHAR data type. This pads the value with spaces. CHAR wastes space and introduces problems with custom reporting. We have to add RTRIM to custom queries to get rid of the extra spaces.
Please consider converting to using VARCHAR for text fields.
At this time there are no scheduled plans for this feature.
