David Meego - Click for blog homepageAs mentioned yesterday, I am heading to Johannesburg, South Africa for the User Group World Tour 2019 conference and will be offering Dexterity training afterwards.

However, I will also be offering a day of free GP Power Tools training (available to registered conference attendees) during the pre conference Workshop day on Tuesday 11th June 2019.

GP Power Tools is the ultimate add on for Microsoft Dynamics GP to improve the experience of Administrators, Consultants, Developers and Users. It has features that will benefit all users of GP regardless of the level of the technical experience.

To get an understanding of what GP Power Tools can do for you and how it can solve your pain points, check out the Benefits Presentation.

To get a more in depth look at GP Power Tools, including what’s new in build 26 and build 27, whether you are an existing user or not, come to the workshop day.

In the morning we will be covering the Installation, System Features and the Administrator Tools module. Then in the afternoon we will be covering the Database Tools and Developer Tools modules.

Leveraging GP Power Tools

GP Power Tools from Winthrop Development Consultants is a powerful suite of tools to help you support, administer and customize your Microsoft Dynamics GP system.

This workshop will introduce all the features of the latest builds of GP Power Tools and explain the benefits of each. We will cover the features of all four of the modules so that you have a full understanding of what the tool is capable of and how it can solve your pain points. The modules of GP Power Tools are:

  • System Features module
  • Administrator Tools module
  • Developer Tools module
  • Database Tools module

We will cover topics such as; identifying resources (windows, tables, fields, etc.), resolving application security issues, setting up deny based security, capturing screenshots and logs, troubleshooting the cause of an issue, controlling Dex.ini settings and even avoiding issues by color coding companies.

We will also cover the scripting and programming capabilities of the tools, showing how it can be used to customize the system and fix issues. Also, we will explore the Database Validation feature to understand how this will help ensure your system is in “tip top” shape and so avoid upgrade issues.
