Facebook Poll Results: You want Report Writer fixed!

In our very unscientific Facebook poll, 63% of users voted that the one item they want fixed the most in Dynamics GP is Report Writer. Importing and Stock counts followed with 19% and 13% of the votes respectively. Fixed Asset historical reporting brought up the rear at 6%.

Microsoft has started to address Report Writer in the upcoming GP 2010 with more SSRS reports, more Excel reports and Microsoft Word based forms. But at least at launch, the Word based forms will be based on existing Report Writer forms so I'm not sure that Microsoft has gotten the message loud enough and clear enough that you want Report Writer to go away. Convergence 2010 in Atlanta would be a great place to convey that message.
