The 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 eighth Feature of the Day covered is Default Fixed Asset ID From The Asset Class. Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 saw the introduction of feature which allowed the Asset ID to be defaulted in the same way as the Voucher Number. GP 2013 R2 has seen this feature extended further to allow each Asset Class to have it's own Asset ID range defaulting.
In Asset Class setup () a class can be set to have a Next Asset ID which has a prefix and ID unique to the class:
I can see this being very useful to a number of my clients using Fixed Assets where they have a number of different asset classes where having different prefixes for the different asset types would be very useful.
