System setup

System setup for Dynamics GP includes settings that are global to your entire Dynamics GP installation such as the system password, registration, creating users, setting up user security, currency settings, exchange rates, and additional system-wide settings.

A very useful feature in Dynamics GP is the Setup Checklist, which lists all of the setup steps with a brief description of each and provides automatic links to the related setup windows. The setup checklist also gives you the ability to assign tasks to others and change the status of the various installation tasks as you go through them. In the following sections, the navigation paths to get to each setup window will be detailed using the Dynamics GP menus, however you may find that bringing up the setup checklist can save you time during the setup. The setup checklist is found under Microsoft Dynamics GP | Tools | Setup | Setup Checklist.
