Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2: Batch Edited Message

Microsoft Dynamics GPWith the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 it’s time for a series of “hands on” posts where I go through the installation of all of it’s components and also look at the new functionality introduced; the index for this series can be found here.

The feature of the day I am covering in this post, is the Batch Edited Message. If a user tries to open a batch being edited by another user they will receive a warning message containing the users name:

MDGP 2016 R2 Feature of the Day: Batch Edited Message

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series Feature of the Day posts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2; as the most recent versions have been, these posts are in the form of PowerPoint slides; I am reposting them here so they can be read more easily.

The series index for this series of posts is here

The fourth Feature of the Day is Batch Edited Message:

This batch is being edited by JodiCh. Please try again later.

This is a simple, but oh so welcome, enhancement to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2; when a user tries to interact with a batch which is being edited by another user, the message will no longer simply say it is being edited by another user, but will now name the other user who is editing the batch.

No longer will I need to write, or deploy, SmartLists to users allowing them to see who is locking batches (I still might so the administrator can take a global view of their system) to simply see which user is preventing a batch from being posted.
