Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Service Pack 2 Released

Posted by Donna Krizik on August 29, 2013

Microsoft released Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Service Pack 2 today. Microsoft has added some new features for Dynamics GP 2013 in SP2 that are based on customer feedback. 

For GP 2010 Customers
Service Pack 4 for GP 2010 will release mid-September and, according to Terry Heley, Escalation Engineer at Microsoft, this will be the last Service Pack for GP 2010, the big patch for 2010 outside of the continued tax and year end updates, which will continue through the year and into early 2014.

Crestwood strongly recommends that all payroll clients install these updates sooner rather than later, because come November, you are going to get them anyway with the Payroll YE, so it just makes sense to start testing and getting familiar with them.  

For GP 10.0 Customers
As you know, GP 10.0 is no longer under mainstream support, which means you won’t get tax updates, year-end updates, or service packs. And be assured that there will be changes for year-end, and if you are on version 10.0, you won’t get them.  You should start thinking about upgrading, or what you might be able to do to get by, well in advance.
