MDGP 2013 Feature of the Day: Inventory Transaction Reason Codes

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft have started the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP Blog.

The first feature they’ve announced has been a long time coming. A regular question I’ve been asked by clients when implementing the Inventory Control module is how a reason can be assigned to the adjustment or variance and the best that could previously be done was to use part of the Batch ID.

Well, in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, Microsoft have introduced the Reason Code field to the Item Transaction Entry (Transactions » Inventory » Transaction) window;

Along with the ability to select a reason code is the Reason Code Setup window (Setup» Inventory » Reason Codes?) where you can define if the reason can be used on Adjustments or Variances;

With the introduction of this new feature, Microsoft have made visibility to the Warehouse Manager much better as to why stock levels have been adjusted or varied which will assist reporting on trends massively.

What should we write about next?
