This extension makes it easy to migrate customers, vendors, inventory items, and accounts from Dynamics GP to Financials. If your business uses Dynamics GP today, you can export the relevant master records and then open an assisted setup guide to add the data to Financials. For more information, see Migrate Business Data from Other Finance Systems.
Exporting Data from Dynamics GP
You must have exported some or all of your existing customers, vendors, inventory items, and accounts to a file, using the Dynamics GP functionality for data export. For the purposes of Financials, you can export the following types of data:
The Dynamics GP Data Migration extension automatically maps the exported data so that your data is quickly available to you in your new Financials company. During the process, supporting setup information is created, such as posting groups. Inventory items will be brought into the system with FIFO as the cost valuation method. Accounts will be set up as the main account segment from Dynamics GP with dimensions, because Dynamics 365 for Financials does not have account segments.
