Today I had a chat with @David Musgrave, the brain behind GP Power Tools (aka GPPT), which he completely overhauled back in 2015 after he was let go by Microsoft and regained control over the former Support Debugging Tool (aka SDT). David mentioned to me some of the good ideas he recently had turned into... Continue Reading →
How many times have you been caught with this error message after GP Utilities has completed the DYNAMICS system DB & company DB upgrade ?

To all my Dynamics GP #MVP buddies out there.. this time of the year where you have to submit your activities to Microsoft, since they are now all due for March 31st as deadline (don’t wait the last minute!). This set of PowerShell scripts is going to help if you have a long list to enter.
