5 Support Debugging Tool features you should be using today: Decisions Fall 2011

November 23, 2011
The Decisions Fall 2011 virtual conference is around the corner, with Dynamics GP Day scheduled for Tuesday, December 6 2011. Please register to participate in the conference. This is a unique, virtual conference experience. No, it’s not a boring webinar and surely not the kind of place where you will be ran over by tons of people walking up in hallways and down escalators trying to get to a session room. You can do this from the comfort of your office, sofa, or even your tricked out basement office. There’s no excuse – that I can think of anyways – for not participating.

This time around, I will be presenting a topic around – what else! – the Support Debugging Tool: “5 Support Debugging Tool features you should be using today with Microsoft Dynamics GP”. What can I say, I love long session titles.

This session is strictly an end-user oriented presentation whose sole objective is to demistify the complexities of the Standard Mode options in the Support Debugging Tool. That’s right! No complex scripts, no Dexterity triggers, no XML mambo jambo… just plain simple talk on what’s available for YOU the everyday mortal who works with Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Want the advanced stuff? Meet David and I at Microsoft Convergence 2012 in Houston (more on this in another post).

The session will feature 5 simple demoes that will, once and for all, convince you of installing the tool in your environment.

I will also be a panelist at the Microsoft Dynamics GP MVP Roundtable with my compadres, Frank Hamelly, Jivtesh Singh, and Mark Polino. You get to ask us anything Microsoft Dynamics GP and have some fun in the process. Register now!

Until next post!

MSDynamicsWorld’s Decisions Spring 2011 virtual conference Day 2

June 15, 2011

Today was my turn at the bat… so to speak.

My session, Microsoft Dynamics GP Roadmap Explained began on time at 11:00 AM ET and counted with the participation of guest Errol Schoenfish, Director of Product Management, Microsoft Dynamics.  The session ran for some 20 minutes and was over by 11:20 AM ET.

At the end of the session, Errol and I fielded a number of questions from the participants attending the session. I have to say, there were quite a bit of questions, perhaps more than I originally expected, which made for an excellent wrap up as it provided everyone with a unique opportunity (over 40 minutes!) to ask Errol directly about the future of Microsoft Dynamics GP and Management Reporter.

Interestingly enough, we had a large number of developers in the crowd who wanted to know what the product future holds for existing Dexterity and Modifier/VBA customizations. If you are interested in knowing about these details, beyond what was covered during the presentation and Q&A session, please take a look at my past architecture series on GP 12:

Decisions 2010 Spring Conference – Day 1

May 20, 2010

I woke up this morning thinking to myself Decisions 2010 Spring Conference would be “just another webinar”. When I logged on to the Conference site I was confronted with a true virtual conference environment with expo halls, booths, and even a lounge where you could “hang out” and chat with other users.


The idea of being able to go to the different virtual spaces was amazing to say the least. The application platform was simply breath taking. I then decided to take a tour through the different exhibit halls. I quickly rushed into the East Exhibit Hall where I “came across” the folks of Accellos, FastPath, and Flexible Solutions.


One thing to note about the virtual expo environments, is the background sound of people transiting around the expo and talking, conveying the sense of activity.

I stopped over at the Flexible Solutions booth where I chatted with MVP Victoria Yudin and Mickie Stamm. The team seemed a bit busy, so I left after 5 minutes to visit other areas of the Conference.

After visiting the East Exhibit Hall, I “went” to the West Exhibit Hall area. I probably spent some 15 to 20 minutes touring around the exhibits and saying hi to a number of people who I recognized by name.

Like with any real-world expo halls, navigating through these and saying hi to everyone just seemed a bit tiresome. So, off I went to the Lounge area. The Lounge was very busy with a lots of users and partners exchanging experiences via the chat platform.


I introduced myself to a few individuals and had to quickly switch my focus to my session. My session was scheduled to begin at 1:00 PM EDT with tech check at 12:30 EDT. Tech check went well with some issues around the sound quality of the VoIP phone in my hotel here in Las Vegas. Little before the conference was scheduled to begin I asked the magic question: how do I share my screen with the attendees? The silence on the other side of the line told the whole story. I won’t have that option.

Regardless of the issue at hand, I decided to move forward. My session began with opening introduction by Mr. David Gumpert, Editorial Director at MSDynamicsWorld and one of the individuals responsible for the organization of the Decisions 2010 Spring Conference. Once the introduction was over, I began talking through my slides explaining the benefits of managing security with the Support Debugging Tool. I covered two main topics: the Security Profiler and the improved Security Information window, and believed to have gotten the central message of my presentation across: “use Support Debugging Tool to administer your Microsoft Dynamics GP security… it just makes all the sense in the world and it’s free!”. Still, I walked away from the session with a bit of frustration for not being able to deliver the demo I had planned.

Attendance to the session was 65-strong, with questions revolving around the future of Support Debugging Tool, new features to be released in upcoming builds, and deployment options. The session ended very quick as the allotted time was only 30 minutes.
