Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM has now been released and I have been taking a Hands On look at the installation and configuration of the new version.
I am now going to take a hands on look at the new and enhanced features introduced in Microsoft Dynamics GP. Rather than do this as a continuation of the Hands On series I wrote in December, as originally intended, I am going to split it out into a separate hands On With the features post.

The first of the features announced by Microsoft was the introduction of DocAttach on more windows: the DocAttach button on the action pane makes the function more accessible to users. The windows updated for this are:
- General Ledger Transaction Entry
- Receivables Transaction Entry
- Asset General Information
- Employee Entry
- I-9 Form (Payroll)
- Journal Entry Enquiry
- Payables Transaction Entry Zoom
- Receivables Transaction Entry Zoom
