Dynamics GP 2016 Readiness Guide for consultants
Dynamics GP 2016 was released on May 1st 2016. This guide will help Microsoft Dynamics GP consultants to get up-to-date with the new features, training, and resources related to this new product.
New features – Summary
Dynamics GP 2016 comes with many exciting new features:
– A new HTML5 web client, which replaces the previous Microsoft Silverlight-based experience. This hasn’t brought any major changes to the general navigation.
– Additional browsers and mobile devices are now supported.
– Workflow condition management: a new option has been introduced which allows more flexibility with the automatic processing of workflows in situations when a condition isn’t met.
– Configurable OData Service points: Dynamics GP data can now be read by any tool that supports OData feeds.
– SmartLists imports and exports: SmartLists created with SmartList Designer can now be imported and exported from one install to another.
Microsoft have released some very interesting documentation detailing and explaining those features (and more):
A Microsoft video presenting the system-wide new features.
A Microsoft White paper which summarises the GP 2016 enhancements.
