Who Moved My Dynamics GP Downloads? 

Back in October, changes were made to PARTNERSOURCE and now you guessed it, we need to remodel CustomerSource too.  Overall, these changes are positive and will give users a better experience when trying to find information for our products..

In the backend, we are still using File Exchange and you will be required to use your login to download  products.  It is just the front appearance to the user will change a bit.

To help get you started I wanted to give you some quick direct links to pages you may need as you go through the new site, like a cheat sheet.

As you have probably noticed over time, Microsoft in general is moving everything to docs.microsoft.com.  Microsoft's mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. This was one of the considerations as we built docs.microsoft.com on top of the open GitHub platform any user can submit documentation changes for the greater good of all.

The KB's, TK's (we used to call them, gosh I'm old) are now searchable on the main support page for any product. Tip would be to search by name of what you want vs KB number .  Example: GP copy company.
This will pull up are beloved KB 872709 - Set up a test company that has a copy of the live company.  The KB number itself is no longer in the link of the articles as it used to be.

Documentation for Dynamics GP is stored on the DOCS site as well.  What is great about DOCS is all users have the ability through GitHub to update this documentation with information to help other users, how awesome is that!

Now to the important stuff, where can I download information:

The directory / resource page for Dynamics GP that has everything summarized for you is still available if you are used to moving about the cabin in that fashion.

**There will be redirects for about 2 weeks, but by end of February 2021, you may get the 'hmmmm I can't find the page your are searching for message we all love.

Below are also some of the most common areas people need help with so wanted to have this accessible to you.

In closing to go with my theme above, the biggest tip to help you stay prepared is to never settle for how things currently are. Then, you will be ready to move when the cheese moves. By doing so, you will never become extinct.

That also goes to say Dynamics GP is not dead, it is not extinct it has a LIFECYCLE to support.  Microsoft is dedicated to deliver features to you over the next few years along with tax and regulatory changes.  We have a strong community and customer base, do not let the fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) cloud your decision.

Thanks
