MDGP 2013 R2 Feature of the Day: Copy And Paste To General Ledger Transaction Entry

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 fourth Feature of the Day covered is Copy and Paste to General Ledger Journal Entry. This feature gives users the ability to quickly copy data from an excel file and paste into the Genera Ledger Transaction Entry (Financials » Transactions » General) window.

Highlight the data in Excel and copy to the clipboard and then in the GP window click Paste on the ribbon:

Transaction Entry

The data will be validated and a validation error report printed if there are any errors encountered so the end-user can easily make corrections correct.

It is nice to see this feature introduced as a core piece of functionality. Previously we have introduced this functionality to users by implementing the Dynamics Innovations Excel Copy and Paste tool. This tool is still useful as it allows copy and paste into other windows and modules in GP, unlike this new feature which is restricted to only the General Legder.

MDGP 2013 R2 Feature of the Day: Purchase Requisitions

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 second Feature of the Day covered is Purchase Requisitions which ties into Purchase Order Processing and is also workflow enabled. Both workflow and purchase requisitions are entirely new replacements for the old Business Portal and Dynamics Workflow modules which, unlike their predecessors, live within the Microsoft Dynamics GP client and are not dependent on SharePoint.

Navigation is streamlined for the requester to see a requisition status or enter a requisition using a new Purchasing Requisition Navigation List and can route the requisition through a workflow process created using new workflow functionality; when requisitions are submitted, they will route through the active workflow:

Purchasing Requisitions Navigation List

The third Feature of the Day covered is Identity Management – Login.

This feature allows users to log into the GP web client using their Windows identity (e.g. the Windows Domain login). This is configured in the User Setup window (Administration » Setup » Tools » System » User) when the user is created.

The window has been enhanced to allow a user to be configured with both, or either, an SQL identity and/or a Windows identity; additionally a user can be configured as a Web Client user only and does not then require an SQL identity which is only required if the user will access GP using the desktop client; likewise the Windows identity is only required if the user will be using the web client.

A user would have both types of identity created if they would be accessing GP using either, or both, the desktop or web clients in a mixed mode deployment.

The first Feature of the Day covered is SmartList Designer Go To’s. SmartList Designer was introduced in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 and providd similar, although a much cut down, functionality of SmartList Builder.

This new feature is GP 2013 R2 adds a very important piece of missing functionlity; the ability to add Go To’s to SmartLists created in SmartList Designer.

When a user creates a new SmartList based off an existing SmartList, the GoTo’s that already exist are copied over to the new list created; when a user creates a new SmartList, there are three types of GoTo’s which can be added to the new SmartList: another SmartList, a navigation list or a web page:
