​In keeping with its commitment to update Dynamics GP regularly, Microsoft released the latest update for the software earlier this month. As with the other hot fixes, this one is not a major update with a bunch of new features, but it takes care of a variety of common errors that may frustrate many Dynamics GP users. So, now you’ve gotten through the mad rush of January and year end, it’s a great time to think about giving the Dynamics GP accounting software your business counts on a little spruce up. After all, wouldn’t to make the most of your Dynamics GP investment be a worthwhile goal for 2020?

What’s new in the February 2020 hot fix for Dynamics GP?

Here’s a brief list of some fixes included in the latest update.

  • Using the new long description field in the Payables module will no longer cause your check stubs to print on two pages (in both graphical and text formats).
  • The ACA 1095-C form has been changed to reflect the new instructions for the 2019 reporting year.
  • In the Encumbrance module, budget table GL 00201 will now update in the correct direction when approving a purchase requisition using the Encumbrance through Workflow.
  • If you use the new payroll integration to Payables, your reports will now include every employee ID, where they previously may have been missing the last one on the list.
  • You should no longer incorrectly receive the error message stating that a deduction has “been previously posted for the selected date range.”
