Microsoft Dynamics GP Year-End Closing Procedures: Solutions to Common Issues
It’s year-end season and there is no better time to discuss Dynamics GP year-end issues, and provide solutions to the most common Microsoft Dynamics GP year-end closing problems. In this blog I’m covering common errors experienced when attempting to close the G/L year in Microsoft Dynamics GP. In addition, I will supply a few helpful links to sites that I, myself, will reference from time to time. Before we cover common errors, I’ll briefly discuss the nuts and bolts of the closing process. Once you hit the ‘close year’ button on the year-end closing window, two major processes occur: The year is marked as historical and all entries marked with the year in question will be moved from the YTD OPEN table (GL20000) to the Historical table (GL30000). A year-end closing journal entry is created closing all Profit and Loss type accounts to designated Retained Earnings account(s). In addition, all […]
New in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Service Pack 2: SmartList Designer
Earlier this year, we heard that Microsoft was returning sales and support of SmartList Builder to its original developer, eOne. While we were still waiting to find out what that meant for our customers, GP 2013 Service Pack 2 was released, quietly unveiling SmartList Designer: Similar to SmartList Builder, you do need to have a feel for how to join tables together. Also like SmartList Builder, you have the ability to point the Designer at any SQL view or table, including ones you create yourself, which means you can display just about any query you can imagine. It’s very new and there are a few small bugs that I expect will be ironed out in the next release, but it’s ready to use today. The manual can be found in the newest release of the Dynamics GP User Guide. For a quick tutorial, check out this video from Microsoft:   […]
SharePoint 2013 User Profile HTML Properties Lose Values on Edit – Here’s the Work-Around
The Problem In SharePoint 2013 there is a common problem that occurs when editing a user profile in situations where there is more than one HTML user profile property. In these instances, all the HTML properties except for the last one on the page will lose their values. This problem occurs in both SharePoint 2013 Online and On Premise. And it occurs on both the user profile edit pages accessible from SharePoint Central Administration and from My Sites. The Reason The problem is caused by a logical JavaScript error on the user profile edit page. A Java-Script function PopulateEditableRegion() is generated for each HTML property and is responsible for populating the HTML property with its value of the edit page. When there are more than one HTML property, this function runs only for the last HTML property on the page. function PopulateEditableRegion() { var editableRegion = document.querySelector('[InputFieldId=ProfileEditorEditAboutMe_hiddenRTEField]'); if (editableRegion) editableRegion.innerHTML […]
Step-by-Step Guide to Portal Development for Microsoft Dynamics CRM
The Challenge Oftentimes in the world of Dynamics CRM, the need arises for non-CRM users to gain access to CRM data. A common solution is the implementation of a web portal which allows these users to perform certain actions on applicable CRM data. Microsoft offers two portal solutions: the Customer Portal and the Partner Relationship Management Portal. These are managed solutions, can be easily imported into any CRM environment, and come with detailed instructions on how to quickly and efficiently deploy. However, like any construct that is general in its scope, the aforementioned portal solutions do have some caveats. The two solutions install extraneous features onto CRM that are not necessary for portal development, often confusing CRM users and requiring the need to go back and hide all of the excessive customizations. Furthermore, by default, the two portals both use Windows Live for authentication (requiring users without Windows Live to register […]

GL Integrations to Fixed Assets Sub-Ledger and Others in Microsoft Dynamics GP
The Challenge As a company grows so does the need to track information on a more granular level to strengthen the audit trail. One way of doing so is to track transaction information at the sub-ledger level. Unfortunately, many Dynamics GP users are entering transactions directly in the general ledger while, ideally, these transactions should be tracked within their respective sub-ledgers. Microsoft Dynamics GP provides a useful out-of-the-box interface to transfer sub-ledger transaction information up to the general ledger. The challenge is to transfer journal entry details from the general ledger back down to the sub-ledgers – especially for organizations with hundreds or thousands of general ledger entries. The Solution Using simple integrations and configurations within GP, FMT has developed an efficient method to take standard general journal entries and integrate the transactions back into your sub-ledgers including fixed assets and other sub-ledgers. By utilizing tools such as eOne’s Smart Connect, […]

Implementing Multiple EFT File Formats for a Single Checkbook in Microsoft Dynamics GP
ACH (EFT) file format configuration within Microsoft Dynamics GP is a relatively straightforward process. However, what do you do when your bank requires you to use one particular format for Consumer transactions and another for Business transactions? For example, your bank’s requirements could be that you must use a PPD (Prearranged Payment and Deposit) format for Consumer Account transactions and a CCD (Cash Concentration and Disbursement) format for Business Account transactions. This requirement can easily be addressed by using the standard functionality and tools within Dynamics GP 2013 by following the steps outlined below: Step 1 Create the two separate EFT formats – one for PPD and one for CCD. This process can be simplified by using the Export function to export the current format, import as a new name, and finally perform any updates to the formats. In this example, there will be separate CCD and PPD formats for […]

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Office 365 Authentication Deep Dive
In this blog post I will discuss the authentication mechanism and behind the scene communication that happen for CRM 2011 Online Office 365 provisioned organizations using ADFS. The default CRM 2011 Online Office 365 provisioned organization uses “Authentication Platform” that provides identity storage (Microsoft Online IDs) and authentication. The directory store holds the users’ credentials. CRM 2011 Online and other cloud based offering from Microsoft rely and trust on authentication platform for validating that the user is authenticated. You need a valid authentication token to access these services. When you log in to a CRM 2011 Online Office 365 provisioned organization, it first goes to the CRM Online which redirects it to the login page because the user is not authenticated. The user provides the credentials and is authenticated by the authentication platform. It provides the user with a token which is used by CRM Online to validate that the […]
