      "Print to Screen" Size Change

      Suggested by Shawn Dorward, MVPUnder Review 8
      Category: System

      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! :)

      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. 

      Once in SQL it could be scheduled from SQL jobs and results emailed via SQL for those of us with those skills. This would address the issue of unattended scheduling of these tasks which is another suggestion. 

      Even if just the key three pilars of SOP/POP/IV modules were addressed, I'm certain an operation that currenly takes more than a weekend duration to run (currently), would be reduced into minutes.

      Allow unattended scheduling of CHECKLINKS and RECONCILES

      Suggested by Tim WappatUnder Review 3
      Category: System

      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 to review. Even if it meant passing params to GP application via windows scheduler or having another application to run on the server. Alternatively hooks into these processes for GP Addin would help.

      This is a hidden pain of GP admin currently. 

      This also relates but not depends on another suggestion, of moving the reconcile and check links into SQL for easier management.

      Interface GP with 64-bit Outlook

      Suggested by Jeff FryeNew 3
      Category: System

      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 help.  If a solution is not doable please stop promising that GP is compatible with 64-bit Office.

      With workflow growing with popularity, and rightfully so... I think it would be an awesome addition to add the ability to incorporate workflow with security changes... including new users and company assignments.

      Support Office 365 Two Factor Authentication

      Suggested by John DunkleNew 3
      Category: System

      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 Security issues within the organization.

      Fix Home Page Bug

      Suggested by Mike GiuffreUnder Review 0
      Category: System

      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.

      Disable system print dialog box when printing a Word Template

      Suggested by Nicole FiskumNew 0
      Category: 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 default, then it would make sense to disable this option.

      Replace CHAR Data Type with VARCHAR

      Suggested by Marc KUnder Review 1
      Category: System

      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.

      Fiscal Periods Size Change

      Suggested by Jennifer HershbergerNew 0
      Category: System

      Could the fiscal periods window open to 12 periods. I've never understood why it defaults to 8. Don't most organizations have at least 12 periods in a fiscal year?

      Sometimes it's the small things that make life better.
