UPDATED: Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 Documentation & Resources


In my opinion, Microsoft Dynamics GP team might have hurried the release of GP 2015 RTM.

Think about this. You install GP 2015 and the user manuals that comes with that are GP 2013 R2 manuals. For instance, Visual Studio Tools manual that we get after installing the tool is of version GP2013 R2, as shown below:

Not just this manual, there are also other manuals that are basically for GP 2013 R2 but somehow got shipped with GP 2015 installation media.

Where can we get the latest manuals then? Answer is this link: Documentation and resources for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and 2013.

First section on this post would be directing you to GP 2015 manuals.

QUICK UPDATE #1: I was wrong. Even this link seems to be not having *all* manuals. So probably the new ones are still under construction.

UPDATE #2: More relevant link, shared by Beat, is as follows: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=45025

UPDATE #3: Microsoft would probably never update user manuals with each version of GP. This link apparently has got the word on this: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/developingfordynamicsgp/archive/2014/08/08/printable-manuals-for-microsoft-dynamics-gp.aspx

Where Have #MSDYNGP Product Printable Manuals Gone?


I am not sure how many of us actually refer to GP user manuals; the ones that come in PDF format and contain module functionalities. But I do, religiously. When I came to know that they are not available offline anymore, I was a bit upset. After a bit of traversing here and there, I have finally found the location of them.

Take a look at below screenshot, which compares GP 2010 Printable Manuals menu and GP 2013 Printable Manuals menu:

Apparently, when you click on that “Documentation and resources for Microsoft Dynamics GP” link from GP 2013 Printable Manuals window, it takes you to this webpage:

And click on Documentation and resources for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 (highlighted above with RED box), you will be taken to following link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj673201(v=gp.20).aspx.

From there, locate Printable Guides [GP 2013] as shown below:

Once you click that, you will be taken to following link from where you can find all your module manuals: Printable Guides.

Biggest hassle is to click on each link found on this page, being taken to another page and from there download the PDF and it literally kill us. If they are available offline already on GP applications folder, like how it used to be before, it would have been awesome.

Never realised that Microsoft would put them all online and not plant them on our GP application folder anymore. Strange strategy.
