The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series of posts on the new features of, the soon to be released, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015. As I have done for the last two releases, I intend to shadow these posts and add my own opinions on these new feature; the series index is here.
The twenty first Feature of the Day is Payment Terms – Transaction Calculation. In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 you now have greater flexibility to configure payment terms for the transaction due date.

The ability to calculate an example when you are creating the payment term gives you greater flexibility and quicker verification of the option you want:
This feature adds some nice functionality for controlling how the Due Date is calculated; the ability to calculate an example means you can be sure the end result is what you intended.
The roles targeted by this feature are:
- Accounts Payable Clerk
- Accounts Receivable Administrator
- Purchasing Agent
- Customer Service Rep
