MDGP 2018 R2 Feature of the Day: Transaction Level Post Through General Ledger

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series Feature of the Day posts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 on which I am following and adding commentary. The series index for this series of posts is here.

The seventh Feature of the Day is transaction level post through general ledger. This feature is a new posting option in the Posting Setup window (Administration area page » Setup » Posting » Posting); when Allow Transaction Posting is marked, a new checkbox for Post Through General Ledger Files is now available:

Posting Setup

When this new option is marked, transactions will now post all the way through GL.

The following is a list of supported transactions for this feature.

  • Invoice Entry
  • Receivables Apply Doc.
  • Receivables Cash Receipts
  • Receivables Sales Entry
  • Sales Deposits
  • Sales Trx Entry
  • Voided Trx Maintenance (Sales)
  • Payables Trx Entry
  • Payment Entry
  • Purchasing Invoice Entry
  • Purchasing Prepayments
  • Receivings Trx Entry
  • Returns Trx Entry
  • Assembly Entry
  • Transaction Entry (Inventory)
  • Transfer Entry
  • Manual Checks (Payroll)
  • Project Accounting Transaction windows except Project Closing

This is a big change in how Microsoft Dynamics GP works; previously you had to use batches to have post through available. I think this will be a popular addition with some clients (think of one in patticualr with the entry of GRNs); it’s good that it is a posting option as this can be configured individually for each Origin.

Speaking as a partner who sells Dynamics GP, this is also good for demonstrating functionality of Dynamics GP where you had to try to briefly explain why a batch had to be used (often didn;t go don too well).
