Microsoft recently released a fresh hotfix for Dynamics GP 18.2 in February 2020. This hotfix resolves a few different issues for Dynamics GP 18.2 users, but doesn’t affect other versions of the system. You should only look to install this hotfix if you’ve been seeing issues. If you haven’t, there’s no need to install the hotfix.
Note: if you’re NOT on the current version of Dynamics GP and would like to upgrade, please reach out to your CAM. Dynamics GP 2015 users should plan to upgrade immediately.
