The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog started a series of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 Feature of the day posts the other day. As they did with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day posts they are doing them as short posts containing a PowerPoint slide show. I am translating these from the PowerPoints into posts; you can find my series index here.
The fourteenth Feature of the Day covered is Document Attach – Scan. Document Attach was introduced in Dynamics GP 2013 and with every service pack has been further enhanced; Dynamics GP 2013 R2 is no exception with the introduction of a Scan feature.
The Scan feature allows you to attach a paper document directly into Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 using an attached scanner (previously you had to scan using external software which made attaching scanned documents a two-step process; scan the document to get a soft copy onto the computer and then go to the Document Attachment Management window of choice and attach it).
Now, just load the document into the scanner and choose the Scan button on the Document Attachment Management window of choice, and the document will be scanned and attached in one step.
