Microsoft! Are you freaking kidding me?

This is the best example of a disjointed marketing message. Do the people at Microsoft not understand that the existence of social media and niche news sites make moves like this impossible to keep invisible? A company which has spent truckloads of money on a professional social media site and shoehorns it into demo presentations of other products should be a lot smarter than this.

Now, tell me again how GP is safe and you (Microsoft) would be foolish to alienate or push away a huge customer base. Can't wait to see who Microsoft parades out for Amplify in six weeks. Do they dare bring someone in from 365 to tell us how safe our investment in while showing us why we should abandon our licences for the product that is not complete or even in our market?

Pam is Wonderful!

Brilliant, kind, gracious, resourceful are just some of the words I would use to describe her...and we didn't even know each other that well. She immediately makes a positive impact on people. I will miss knowing she's in the GP community. Hope she returns somehow soon.

We miss you too...

Was sorry and confused by this news when I heard about it. The one thing we should all remember is that Pam has been part of this community and our lives since it all started and it would not be what it has become with-out her.

Pam, you will be missed but I know that you want us all to keep forging ahead and moving Dynamics GP forward.

It's up to all of us to keep this community rolling. #MSDYNGP #GPUG

WOW! What was Microsoft thinking...or were they?

My subject line speaks to the shock of the news. Now I must speak of Pam. As others have mentioned Pam has been a symbol of Dynamics GP well before I joined the community 5 years ago. This does raise some questions of the future of GP. I just hope MS is smart enough to post an announcement explaining the future in our collaboration communities.

Pam - I wish you the best! I'm sure someone will snatch you up pretty quick. You are a gem!
