The current version of Dynamics GP is 18.6 (aka GP 2024) was released on October 2, 2023. The previous versions were Dynamics GP 18.5 (aka GP 2023), released October 1, 2022, and Dynamics GP 18.4 (aka GP 2022), released Oct 1, 2021, and the year before, the GP 18.3 version of Microsoft Dynamics GP "GP 2021" was released. The current Dynamics GP 18.5 and GP 18.4 support the new TLS 1.2 security standard which is becoming increasingly important when connecting with Office 365 for emails sent via Dynamics GP.
Back in the Fall of 2019, came a minor name change removing the year from the product name. For simplicity purposes, we will refer to each version by both their technical version number as well as with a quote "2021" to signify that we are recommending clients upgrade to this new GP version in a given year. The team at GP Support North is currently booking 8-10 weeks out given the high demand for our Microsoft Dynamics GP Upgrade Program. The latest cumulative update / version of Management Reporter supports Windows 11, SQL Server 2023 and versions up to Dynamics 18.6.xx.
Previously known at Great Plains, Microsoft Dynamics GP is the most widely used mid-market ERP in North America and is proudly supported by GP Support North for North American clients in the United States and Canada, and GP users on a global basis including UK, Europe, South America, Central America and the Caribbean.
As Microsoft is actively promoting its new cloud-based Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP directly via its website, Microsoft is relying heavily on partners such as the team at GP Support North and Endeavour Solutions to continue to promote and educate clients on the LONG TERM value of Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains).
As part of your Dynamics GP Upgrade, and with the release of Windows Server 2019 (released Oct 2018), you need to be aware that that VBA is no-longer supported in Windows Server 2019 and above. If you are planning to upgrade your Dynamics GP to version 18.5.xx or the new 18.6.xx (which we highly recommend) then you will also need to include in your upgrade plans to review and replace any custom applications or custom code that uses Modeler or VBA. The Endeavour technical team can provide you with additional guidance and/or estimates for replacing this older custom code with modern tools. See below for the current Modern Lifecycle release schedule / roadmap.
