MS Connect Suggestion Sunday: Return PO Number To Requisition Creator

Microsoft Dynamics GPAs the first steps of the replacement of Business Portal, Microsoft introduced purchase requisitions and Workflow 2.0 in Microsoft Dynamics GP. I think both of these are great additions to Dynamics GP, but there is a little disconnect between purchase requisitions and purchase orders.

The issue is that there is no easy out-of-the-box way of notifying the user who created a purchase requisition when it is converted into a purchase order.

Well, SMikeG has posted on MS Connect suggesting that Workflow 2.0 be enhanced to allow the purchase order number to be returned to the user who created the purchase requisition when it is converted into a purchase order. This would allow the user to know that the purchase order has been created from the purchase requisition and is to be sent to the vendor.

The suggestion can be found here where you can also cast your vote.

If you have an MS Connect suggestions you want publicised, contact me with details.

MS Connect Suggestion Sunday: Navigation List Doesn’t Allow Sales Documents Printing In Currency

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis recently came up at a newly implemented client who makes extensive use of the Sales Order Processing module and sells across the world. Some of the sales orders and invoices printed off were coming off in the originating company and others in the functional.

We discussed with the users how the documents were being printed and established that some users were printing from the Sales Transaction Entry window, others from Print Sales Documents and others were using the Sales Order Transactions navigation list.

The documents printed through the navigation list were the ones which were always in the functional currency. The reason is that Sales Transaction Entry and Print Sales Documents have an option to select the Currency to Print whereas the navigation list print button doesn’t.

To remedy this, I have created an MS Connect suggestion to have the Currency to Print added to the print dialog on the navigation list which I would appreciate people voting for:

Navigation List Print Sales Document
