What’s new in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2021 Release?

New Features in Microsoft Dynamics GP Release 2021

  • A Mass Modify option now allows users to update account descriptions.
  • For each receivables batch, users can choose how they want to deposit customer payments.
  • Scrolling across account segments is now possible thanks to new functionality.
  • Payables 1099 print feeds can be set to single feed by default.
  • An email address will be printed on the Payables 1096 form.
  • Sort options on Inquiry Windows can be saved as defaults.
  • The user can modify project numbers and IDs, contract numbers and IDs, and cost categories, in a new window.
  • The system will automatically save the user’s last column filter settings for all-in-one view windows.
  • For Sales Document or Sales Range inquiries, SOP now includes a “go to” option.
  • Employee names will now be pulled directly from their payroll checks into the Safe Pay file.
  • When printing W-2s, a new checkbox allows users to partially mask social security numbers.
  • Payroll transactions can be copied and pasted directly from Excel into the Payroll Transaction Entry window.
  • On a batch-by-batch basis, users can now save defaults for the Payroll Transaction Entry window.
  • Users can click a box to automatically post Approved Workflows for batches in Payables, General Ledger, and Receivables.
  • When a specific workflow is completed, a carbon copy feature has been enabled to send additional users email notifications.
  • Under the Workflow Approval Count, a fourth option was added, allowing the user to specify how many approvals are required for a certain workflow.

When Considering an Upgrade, Keep The Following in Mind:

  • Users must opt-in to at least one of the yearly updates to continue using GP in its extended lifecycle (i.e., if you didn’t do the 2021 mid-year upgrade, you must go ahead with this one).
  • It’s critical to schedule time for testing as part of the upgrade process.
  • Before installing any upgrade patch files to the system, users should make sure they have functional backups.
  • Make sure that all modifications, extensions, and add-ins are properly coded to allow for a seamless upgrade.
  • The upgrade process for an on-premise configuration differs significantly from that of a cloud server, such as Azure. We recommend checking in with your Dynamics Partner if you are unsure.
