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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
