Dynamics GP Tips: Exploiting the Professional Services Tool Library of Microsoft Dynamics GP

Our Dynamics GP tips community has told us there is a FREE tool kit within Microsoft Dynamics GP called the Professional Services Tool Library (PSTL) and like all good tool kits, it allow you to fix things when they go wrong and modify to reflect change.

PSTL is a collection of specific tasks that have been built to allow you to change certain Master records or manipulate blocks of transactions quickly and can prove to be highly effective in resolving data issues quickly.

Sounds terrific? Yes. A word of caution though.

Whilst they are FREE and can make your life so much easier, they are a powerful tool that once you press the GO button there is no going back so take some time with your Dynamics GP partner to understand how they work, and make sure that they can only be accessed by appropriate personnel.

Examples of some of the PSTL functions:
