Some interesting ones, in my opinion, are:
- Account Framework Table Conversion – Tables getting converted are listed. This one’s crucial.
- Database Compatibility – Make sure to change the compatibility level of all DBs (system & company DBs) to the version of upgraded SQL Server (SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014). To my surprise, they have not mentioned about SQL Server 2016 yet. I know, SQL Server 2016 has not been released yet, however, I would have expected some kind of note somewhere that says GP2016 would support SQL Server 2016 once it is released.
- Workflow Documents Must Be Final Approved – Please make sure that all workflow documents are final approved before running the upgrade. Would fail otherwise.
- Overlapping Fiscal Periods – Make sure that you don’t have any overlapping fiscal periods by any chance.
One thing that I noticed (and got happy about) is that there’s no known issue mentioned about GP Web Client. I don’t know if we would have a separate post discussing the known issues. So far, I haven’t seen one, so I am happy that things would go well with HTML5 web client.
Let’s plan the upgrades well, people.
