Micro Force -Velosio Newsletter Jan 2020 - New Year Tasks for Microsoft Dynamics GP


On behalf of our entire team, please accept our best wishes for a very happy, healthy, blessed and very productive 2020 to you and your families!

Since we get to wish you a Belated Happy New Year, it also means that there are year end tasks that you need to perform in your Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains system. So this newsletter tries to remind you of some of these tasks, as well as provide resources for you to get the most out of your Great Plains business software system in 2020!


Year End Services for Great Plains

Besides preparing to process transactions in 2020, there are a number of year end considerations for Great Plains users.

Microsoft has released year end software updates for GP 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2018. Depending upon module and functions you are using at your company, you may need to have this loaded onto your system.

If you would like to schedule services to assist you in your year end closing procedures, please call or email us at to get this service scheduled, which typically takes between one and two hours to complete.

If you are inclined to perform these tasks on your own, the Dynamics community has provided info about this function for each of the following modules. Even though the docs reference an older version of GP, the procedures would be the same (except for 1099 processing). Just click on the module that you want information about. For 1099 processing, we have an updated doc that we can email you upon your request.
