"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! :)

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 your suggestion. We have reviewed this functionality ask previously.  Unfortunately, given the impact throughout the entire system and on customizations, this is not something we can consider at this time.. 
Best regards.

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.

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....

Allow unattended scheduling of CHECKLINKS and RECONCILES

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 ...

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.

Ability to completely remove a Document Attachment from the system

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...
