Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 "Feature of the Day" - Week 18 Digest

Image
As we approach the release date of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, the Feature of the Day series will inevitably begin to die out. However, the features are here to stay, so hopefully this series remains a place for you to continue learning about the new features long after the RTM version of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 hits the market.

Let's see what goodies we had in the basket for last week.

Microsoft Dynamics GP Excel Dashboards

Image
Over the past two weeks, I have downloaded, installed, and been playing with my latest demo toy: Excel Dashboards for Microsoft Dynamics GP! In all fairness, this is not a new product, but rather a research being conducted by the Microsoft Dynamics GP Product Management team on the subject of Business Intelligence. However and to drive the topic, they have created a really cool dashboard using Microsoft Excel 2013, which I also happen to be running on my machine.


Installation

The first thing to do is to download the dashboard which you can find here. Of course, most of the settings are tailored for my friend and Microsoft Program Manager, Jared Hall's computer, who kindly put this dashboard together for your delight, so some work is needed to make things work.

Another reason to attend Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2013: Matchbox Twenty

Image
Microsoft is pulling out all the stops in New Orleans for its Convergence 2013 event. On March 21, 2013, Matchbox Twenty will be closing out the event, live from the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Matchbox Twenty is an American pop rock band, formed in Orlando, Florida, in 1995. The group currently comprises Rob Thomas (lead vocals, piano), Paul Doucette (drums, rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Kyle Cook (lead guitar, backing vocals), Brian Yale (bass guitar), and touring drummer Stacy Jones (drums).

Matchbox Twenty rose to international fame with their debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You (1996), which was certified diamond in the United States and multi-platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Their second album, Mad Season, released in 2000, charted in the top three on the Billboard 200 and was certified 4x platinum in the United States. Their third album, More Than You Think You Are, released in 2002, was certified double platinum in the United States.

The band then…

Windows 8 and the Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client Series - Update

Since the last time I blogged about Web Client and Windows 8, a lot has transpired since - and I mean a lot! You can read the complete series of previous articles here:

Windows 8 and the Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client Series - Wrap Up

The first major development is, since the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Beta code was released on PartnerSource, around the time of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift 2012 event in Fargo, the Microsoft Dynamics GP development team has put out two major build updates - internally, they continue to create builds almost on a daily basis to keep up with testing demands.

The two builds I have received so far (12.00.1118 and 12.00.1204) have been pretty darn stable on Windows 8 Professional and Windows Server 2012 Standard editions, with the latter build featuring a blazing fast - and I mean super fast - web client. Much faster than the Beta release and certainly much faster than build 12.00.1118.

The second major development is the web client installa…
