Security and Modern Authentication / Shared Mailbox

Dynamics GP 18.5 and 18.6 have significant security and compliance changes you should consider for your environment. These latest versions have the necessary updates to keep GP’s email functionality in sync with Microsoft’s shift from Basic Authentication to Modern Authentication, effective since October 1, 2022. Most customers are able to email now using the new MFA authentication, and the latest 18.6 Dynamics GP update renews the ability to send Sales and Purchasing emails from a shared mailbox.

R

1099 Vendors/Forms

If you have 1099 vendors, this release has added lines to all 1099 documents, a feature that previously was exclusive to the 1099-NEC form. Now, all 1099 forms, including 1099-MISC, -INT, and –DIV, can be printed on blank paper instead of pre-printed templates.
R

Fiscal Year-End Reversal

Perform fiscal year-end reversals with greater ease. This feature is now available for one company at a time, rather than requiring after-hours efforts that lock out all users from all companies.
R

Customer Statements

Customer statements display or remove fully applied transactions. This will remove any payments, credits, or invoices that have been fully applied. Of course, you may include them still if you prefer.
R

Financial Inquiry Windows

You can now use the new Redisplay button on the ribbon in the financial Summary and Detail inquiry windows instead of closing the window to refresh the data.
