I am not familiar with GP>  Do you mean from the Great Plains interface or just using the GP data?

Unless it has an admin feature to allow adding reports, I doubt you can do it.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
