Nice clarification. Are any of these points/dates different for Dynamics GP 2013? I believe the functionality of the limited user in GP is slightly different?

Considering the way much of NAV is structured, with access required to multiple tables to enable validation or just display of descriptions for codes, names of customers, vendrs etc it seems like the Limited User is som limited as to be useless (or high risk when enforcement occurs)If MSD is serious about encouraging more users then an assessment of what really happens in industry should provide a real profile of a limited access user.
