Microsoft are posting the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day series on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP Blog.
The fifty first feature they’ve announced is Encumbrance Cost Difference Notification.
When you encumber an item in Purchase Order Entry, you reserve a certain amount of your budget for the item based on the item cost.
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;
This new feature is targeted at the following roles:
- Purchasing Agent
- Accounts Payable
- Receivings Clerk
