Microsoft formally announces the highly anticipated Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 release is coming in May.

With improved cloud support, workflow enhancements and more intuitive user experience, Microsoft boldly states it believes this release is going to change the way people and businesses interact with and expect from their business solutions.

Here’s what to expect from this powerful new release:

HTML5 Client

To provide a friendlier user experience via mobile devices, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 introduces an HTML5 interface. This eliminates the need for Silverlight to run the Dynamics GP Web Client. Users will now be able to use Microsoft Dynamics GP from any device that supports HTML5 web browsers such as iPads and Android so they can take advantage of all its functions using popular browsers like Safari, Chrome and Firefox.

The new HTML5 web client delivers only the visual interface to the device while all the computing functions are done at the server level. This is expected to improve ERP performance via the cloud.

Business Intelligence Reporting

With the advent of GP 2016 Power BI Reports, users will be able to access important data right on the home page. This will allow your team a quick snapshot of the data they care about the most.

All-in-One Document View

The new All-in-One Document View provides users a look at all related inventory or sales documents for a transaction in a single window. All-in-One Documents will be accessible from the Customer Maintenance area, many sales inquiry windows, navigation menus and the home page.


Several changes to Smart Lists will help GP 2016 save time. the ability to export and import SmartList definitions from SmartList Designer will shave some time off reporting, and being able to create a new SmartList from a Favorite using Designer will reduce mouse clicks. This new functionality is more convenient than having to remove unnecessary columns from the default SmartList.

Enhancements to Core Product

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 will also include a number of enhancements to the core product, including project integration of purchasing requisitions, the ability to change workflow conditions, attaching documents for project expenses, enable credit card payment types for check run processing, HTTPS support (to allow for viewing Management Reporter over secure connections), multiple page scan and an increased field size for Distribution Reference.
