One of the most notable features of the new release of Microsoft Dynamics GP is an improved version of the web client. The web client allows users to access some of the system’s capabilities on-the-go, and gives IT professionals the deployment option of providing users with a URL to log into the system. Below, we list the most significant improvements and how GP is now easier to use than ever before.
1. Integrated search functionality
Apart from finding the window or the report that you need, the integrated search functionality will bring up a list of all the open windows and reports that are relevant to your search term and criteria. With this feature, users no longer need to remember where a specific window is. By typing the window name into the search field, the web client will immediately hyperlink to it.
2. Support for a variety of web browsers and mobile devices
The web client, which was previously only accessible using Silverlight and Microsoft browsers, can now be run through iPad, android tablets, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari, since it uses the latest release of the universally accepted hypertext markup language – HTML 5.
3. Enhanced user experience
The user interface has been refreshed, with the banner now enabling users to log in and log out and indicate which company they’re logged into. The new web client also has the distinctive feel of Office 365 with the Office banner.
