GP #LifeHacks 113: Resetting Forgotten System Password

Dynamics GP & Power BI – What it does and how to use it – New for GP2018

Dynamics GP has had a few iterations of its Power BI integration over the years.  I was very excited to see Power BI functionality in GP – this started with ~Dynamics GP 2016.  Despite my excitement, I found it hard to ‘get on board’ as the functionality was limited and somewhat unreliable.  Microsoft heard our case and delivered many changes with Dynamics GP 2018.  The Power BI and Dynamics GP friendship has been renewed and I think you will really like it!
