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 eighteenth Feature of the Day covered is Suggested Item Enhancements – Analysis and Assignment. Suggested Items were introduced in Dynamics GP 2013 and it is really good to see this feature extended further.
The Suggestion item enhancements allows the user to analyze an item and recommends companion items that should be sold with it. The assignment feature uses the suggestions from the analysis and will provide the ability to update the Suggested Sales Items window at the time of the analysis.
One window has been amended and one created for this feature. The amended window is the Item Maintenance – Suggest Items window ():
And the created window is the Suggested Sales Item Analysis window Item Maintenance – Suggest Items window ():
This feature is targeted at the following roles:
- Purchasing Agent
- Purchasing Manager
- Warehouse Manager
