An Update for Dynamics GP Payroll and HR Users

Great Plains HR and Payroll Module Changes

Microsoft Dynamics GP users will see some changes in the coming years. The HR and Payroll groups consist of four modules that provide current functionality for Dynamics GP installations that will be retired in March 2022. The four modules involved are:

  • Payroll Extension – (Deduction from arrears, Payroll integration with payments, Overtime rate manager)
  • Advanced Payroll
  • advanced human resources
  • PTO . manager

Microsoft will remove the Human Resource and Payroll Suite (modules listed above) from your Dynamics GP installation in March 2022. If you already have a license, you will be able to continue to use the product and receive support, but Microsoft will stop providing support for this functionality in March 2023.

Please note that nothing changes with Nucleus Payroll and HR products; They will continue to support the product through end of life cycle. Microsoft will continue to provide tax and year-end updates for payroll. There is nothing you need to do right now – but if you are using the above units please contact Crestwood Associates to ensure a smooth transition.
