Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 is Available

by | Updated August 1, 2018 | Dynamics GP

As promised, Microsoft released Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 on December 1, 2017. This new version is full of features requested by Dynamics GP users and will enhance the user experience through a variety of enhancements.

We recommend that you do not upgrade to Dynamics GP 2018 until the first service pack is released, which is usually a few months after the full release. This ensures that any add-on ISV products are fully compatible. It also ensures you don’t run into any bugs that slipped through the cracks in the new version.

No matter what, always double check that your add-on products are compatible before upgrading. Contact your GP partner and they will be able to assist you.

Below are the updates that are included in GP 2018, straight from the Microsoft GP development blog:
