Changes to Office 365 that will impact Dynamics GP email and workflow functionality
On the RSM blog, Tom Burtner noted that Microsoft recently announced security changes to Office 365 and Exchange Online. Effective October 1, 2022, Microsoft is replacing basic authentication protocols with a new modern protocol to secure Exchange Online and hosted Office 365 from possible cyberattacks.
However, Burtner stated that these security changes will negatively impact the email and workflow functionalities in older versions of Dynamics GP. He noted that users who will be affected by these changes are those using Dynamics GP 18.2 or another older version, such as GP 2010, GP 2013, GP 2015, GP 2016, or GP 2018.
In his blog post, Burtner explained why Microsoft made these changes and stated that the easiest and best answer for those using email or workflow capabilities is to upgrade to version 18.3 or later.
