In August, I went on my annual pilgrimage to Fabulous Fargo for the Microsoft Dynamics GP Tech Conference 2018. The event was held at the Microsoft Campus in Fargo, ND, USA on the 20th to 22nd August 2018.
While smaller than previous years it was still well attended and everyone who was there found it worthwhile, both for the technical knowledge and product information provided as well as for the social and networking opportunities.
My trip to South Africa is completed and the GPUG Amplify South Africa conference is over for another year.
I am looking forward to coming back again to meet with the Microsoft Dynamics GP community in South Africa.
After a fantastic few days leading up to the conference, the first day of GPUG Amplify South Africa 2018 has finally arrived.
Jennifer accompanied me on the first day to help Angie Ryan and Katie Froeber with registration and then be there later for the end of the day when there were cocktails.
I will explain more in an article soon, but I will need to be relatively brief with my coverage of the GPUG Amplify South Africa 2018 conference. Needless to say Jennifer and I had a fantastic time in South Africa.
From my perspective, it was wonderful to have my wife along for the trip so she could meet some of the great people I work with… my “Conference Buddies”. That’s what I call my friends in the Microsoft Dynamics GP community that I only catch up with at conferences.
It has been just over a year since the last time this old chestnut was raised by someone in the community.
This time the question of Microsoft Dynamics GP’s future has been raised by Mark Brummel, who was a Microsoft MVP (Business Solutions) for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV product, and is based in the Netherlands.
One of the regular pieces of feedback I often hear from Microsoft Dynamics GP users is that they really wished that the application would remember where they want their windows positioned.
To solve this issue, in Build 22 of GP Power Tools, I added the Window Position Memory feature (released in February 2017).
A little while back I was discussing the Microsoft Dynamics GP HTML5 Web Client with an Australian Partner Consultant and he told me about an issue I was not aware of with date formats.
It turns out that the HTML5 web client does not display date formats correctly for anyone outside of North America. More specifically, the date format used in the application windows is in MM/DD/YYYY format regardless of your workstation’s regional settings.
