Visit Website View Our Posts

The Dynamics GP 2016 Roadmap is out and it has a few surprises I was not expecting!


The first thing I notice in contrast to the previous 2015 Roadmap is that there is no more Dynamics GP 2015 R3 update scheduled, but this roadmap goes straight into Dynamics GP 2016 instead. Some of the features are also different than predicted by the GP 2015 roadmap as well. But instead of comparing the two, let us just note some of the GP 2016 features and plans for Dynamics GP 2016.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Features:

Talented Dynamics author Tim Wappat writes in his article "GP 2016, looking sweet in HTML 5"

Core Enhancements

HTTPS Support for Management Reporter Viewer

Ease of Use
