Microsoft Dynamics GP – New Features for 2021

As we start off a fresh new year, it’s a great time to update Microsoft Dynamics GP users on on all the new functionality in Dynamics GP for 2021! In this on-demand webinar, GP consultant Deborah Newcomer from CSSI brings you up to date on GP ERP software, discusses each new feature, and takes a look at the road map for this ERP solution. We think that Dynamics GP customers will find this discussion helpful.

Some of the content discussed in this on-demand webinar (Whats new in dynamics GP 2021) includes:

General Updates

Prior GP lifecycle plan: Prior to 2021, Microsoft published fixed dates for end of mainstream support and end of extended support. Please note: if you are running a version of GP which is either beyond or approaching its support end date, it’s time for a GP upgrade: contact CSSI to discuss your options.

GP support dates

New GP Lifecycle policy: Microsoft has committed to releasing 2 or 3 updates per year. You are considered current if you install at least 1 upgrade per year. Keeping current with updates not only gives you access to new functionality such as the features discussed below, it also provides you with bug fixes and patches to keep you secure.
