GP 2018 User Types

Dynamics GP 2018 licensing options include 3 user types, designed to meet the needs of individuals working in a wide variety of roles.

  • Full Users—receive unrestricted direct or indirect access to all of the functionality in the modules your organization owns.
  • Limited Users–get restricted access to the Dynamics GP as described below:
    • “Read” access to any data contained in the system through any client
    • “Write” access to their own Self Service information
    • “Write” access through any system windows not created by Microsoft
  • Self Serve Users—may only access the ESS Employee, the ESS PTE Employee, and the ESS Purchase Requester security role IDs, for the purpose of entering and retrieving their own personal data.

In other words, Self Serve users can generate requisitions, enter time and expenses, enter project time and expenses, access benefits self service and workflow.  A limited user can do all of that plus utilize inquiry, reports and SmartLists.

Please note: Any access beyond that which is granted by a Limited User or a Self Serve User requires Full User access.
