MDGP 2013 R2 Feature of the Day: Encumbrance SQL Reporting Services Reports

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog started a series of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 Feature of the day posts the other day. As they did with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day posts they are doing them as short posts containing a PowerPoint slide show. I am translating these from the PowerPoints into posts; you can find my series index here.

The twenty-third Feature of the Day covered is Encumbrance SQL Reporting Services Reports. New SQL Reporting Services Reports have been created for Encumbrance Management; new Encumbrance Summary and Detail reports have been added to the existing list of SRS Reports. As with other SSRS reports these ones can be run from the Reporting Services Reports navigation list, directly from the deployment location or attached to and printed from a window in Microsoft Dynamics GP.

MDGP 2013 Feature of the Day: Use Multiple Budgets With Encumbrance Management

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft are posting the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day series on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP Blog.

The eight first feature they’ve announced is Use Multiple Budgets With Encumbrance Management.

In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 you can enter multiple budgets for a single fiscal year. This allows you to have different budgets for different departments or for different periods and instead of combining them yourself, you let encumbrance management combine the budgets for you.

In Encumbrance Management Setup, there is a new window to enter all of the budgets that are for a fiscal year. Now, if the same account exists in more than one budget, encumbrance management will combine the amounts from each budget to verify against as a single available budget amount for a budget period.

Encumbrance Setup

This new feature is targeted at the following roles:

  • Purchasing Agent
  • Accounts Payable
  • Receivings Clerk

With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Encumbrance Management, in order to help users reduce data entry errors and control costs, if the receipt item cost is different than the original encumbered item cost, you will be warned that the costs are different.

When notified, you will be allowed to continue and enter the receipt or correct the item cost;
