Dynamics GP Experts

GPWindow aggregates the Dynamics GP Posts from a select list of Dynamics GP experts. Most of  the people below have contributed immensely to the Dynamics GP Community, sharing their knowledge and expertise tirelessly and selflessly with everybody. Its ultimately the people in the community that make a product go further, and looking at the activity in the community – it is all very heartening !

That may sound a little melodramatic, so let me give you some numbers.

1. GP Articles – Over 6400 GP Related Articles

There are over 6400 high quality GP articles by the people below indexed at GPWindow.

It takes one Mark Polino to galvanize a community, Mark alone has pioneered the GP Blogging community for years, encouraging and prodding people to come and contribute to the community. GPWindow’s recommendation engine works on basis of how often a product is recommended by experts, and the reason you see the best posts in the first page of every category is because Mark has recommended them.

The advent of a David Musgrave got us the responsive Microsoft face into the community, and  excellent insight into the cool things like Support Debugging tool, which have revolutionized GP tech support. David’s blog and articles have taken GP presence on the web to the next level.

  • There are other Dynamics Community Forums like Dynamics GP Google Group, Great Plains Tek Tips Forum and the Microsoft Dynamics GP Partner Forum – You’ll see great work by the GP Community at all these groups. I have just given a sample of the great work in the community above
