Microsoft Dynamics SL 2016 Year-End Tips, Tricks and Resources

Posted by Jen Bieker on December 29, 2016

We recently held a Dynamics SL Year-End webinar.  Hopefully, you were able to join us. But if not, here are some highlights, helpful tips & tricks, important information, and a link to view the recording.

No Year-end Updates for 2016!

As of December 19, 2016 there are no year-end updates for Dynamics SL.  There were no changes made by the federal government to the 2016 tax year regulations that pertain to the year-end forms or electronic files provided by Dynamics SL.  Read the full announcement on Microsoft CustomerSource.  

Maybe you want to check if you’re missing other updates?  One of the tricks we learned during the webinar was how to quickly and easily check for updates and hotfixes right within Dynamics SL by using the Role Center. 

Dynamics SL Role Center

You can always check for updates and hotfixes within Dynamics SL 2011 or 2015 in the “Role Center”.  By going to the Role Center, there are links to the newest information in Microsoft Customer Source.

It’s easy to set up.  Just go to:  Administration > System Manager > Security > Access Rights Maintenance.  In here, go to the role center tab and you can setup the rights.
