A customer recently asked me to remove the Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) Reminder Task from Dynamics GP 2016 R2. Every time she logged in, the reminder popped up on her task list. She attempted to complete and remove the reminder with no avail.
What is this task?
When you install Microsoft Dynamics GP, it automatically creates a recurring reminder for the CEIP in every user’s task list. In most cases, people tend to ignore this task. For some, it is an annoyance, but there’s no easy way to get rid of it in Dynamics GP. Trying to remove the reminder can be a lengthy and tricky process.
The easy way:
There is an easier way to address this issue. Contact your IT department and arrange for someone with SQL Management Studio access to run the following scripts.
- Script #1: removes the reminders for all users
- Script #2: removes the flags, which removes them from the CEIP Program.
Both scripts affect all users, and only need to be run once. As always, before running the scripts ensure you have a valid backup of your system and company databases.
