GPUG Summit 2013

Its that time of the year – start planning for GPUG Summit 2013. Everything GPUG is great value if you work with Dynamics GP, and the summit is the pinnacle of all the good work they do through out the year.

  • More than 150 interactive breakout sessions, most led by fellow Dynamics GP users, which provide many opportunities for group discussion… Arrive with questions and leave with answers and solutions!
  • Distinct learning tracks—ranging from Financial and HR/Payroll to Strategic and New to Dynamics GP—so you can focus on what’s most important to you.
  • Plentiful opportunities to network, interact with and learn from others who, like you, use Dynamics GP every day.
  • Stirring keynote presentations that will inspire you to accomplish great things.
  • Optional activities, such as pre-conference training through GPUG Academy, to get the most from your GPUG Summit experience.

LessonUser does not count as a concurrent user in GP 2013

This is a great new feature in GP 2013. If you new to Dynamics GP – you can be logged into the Practise company (Fabrikam Ltd.) – and that does not count towards your concurrent licenses.

In the example below I have two users in the system (one in a live company, and the other in Fabrikam) – as you can see it is using up only one GP License.

For this to work – you need to setup the user as a “Lesson User” in the User Setup.

Finally if you are logged into multiple companies in GP at the same time – you would find it useful to be differentiate the companies by colour. You can do that using the SDT in a couple of clicks. Read more here - Differentiating Companies in Microsoft Dynamics GP
