Virtual Community Summit NA 2020 – Sessions for GP Payroll and HR Users
We know, Community Summit 2020 is going to look a lot different this year. But the organizers have done their best to put together some effective, educational, and engaging content so that you get the most out of the experience. If you haven’t already, it’s not too late to register, but it is coming soon – October 7-9! Check out the lineup of sessions and experiences waiting for you during the 2020 Community Summit North America.
We’ve compiled our recommendations on the best GP payroll and HR sessions to help you put together your schedule for each day.
Wednesday, October 7
It’s the first day – grab your coffee and let’s get started!
Join this session to explore over 40 different ways to save time, be more efficient AND use GP in ways you never thought were possible with Shawn Dorward! Don’t worry, he’s got you covered with documentation to go along with it!
Interested in seeing what you can do with GP HR Features? You own this module, why not make use of it, whether or not you use GP for processing payroll. Jackie Reckmann and Sherlene Sorenson will provide an overview and give you ideas of what you can do with what you own.
Did you just say Power BI for GP Payroll? Well certainly! The Payroll table structure in Dynamics GP is unlike other modules, but that doesn’t prevent us from using Power BI to support and enhance your Payroll reporting capacity. In this session, David Laster and Integrity Data’s own Danny Clemenson will show you a new, more visual way of reviewing payroll transactions in Dynamics GP with Power BI. They will show you some of the possibilities and even show you the steps to create your own Power BI views for Dynamics GP and beyond as well as an introduction to other Power Platform tools.
Been on GP for several years? Don’t know why it is set up the way it was? Times have changed, codes have changed, new features are here, and you may have a lot of obsolete data cluttering things up. Jackie Reckman and Sherlene Sorenson are here to tell you that it might be time to revisit your payroll setup and see what changes could be made that would help you process payroll more efficiently or get better reporting.
There are multiple applications available from Microsoft for Dynamics GP to track and accrue vacation, sick, and other time. Charles Allen will review how PTO Manager and Human Resources enable your organization to track and accrue vacation, sick, and other types of leave. The session will also look at the Advanced Payroll functionality for leave time liability reporting.
Want to get to the cloud but not sure where to begin? Christina Phillips explores the components, best practices, and potential risks involved in a cloud strategy for Dynamics GP. Possible paths will be explored as well, including benefits and considerations when migrating to Azure, choosing a cloud service provider, as well as considering multi-tenant and private configurations.
