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 twelfth Feature of the Day covered is Requisition Management Integration Points . Purchase Requisitions has been written to integrate with several other areas of Dynamics GP such as Doc Attach, Encumbrance Management and SmartLists:
The main integration points are:
- Attachments, using Document Attachment functionality, can be added to a requisition or line; these attachments can flow to the Purchase Order.
- When Encumbrance Management is enabled, the budget is checked for the requisition line account number and if there isn’t budget available, a warning is given to the requester. A reviewer can later review and approve or cancel the requisition line.
- The requester can enter transaction dimension codes for the general ledger account using Analytical Accounting.
- Default reports are added with SmartList favorites, Excel Reports and SQL Reporting Services reports.
I’ll be keeping a close eye on this feature as I am slightly surprised to see Encumbrance Management picked out as a key integration area without seeing Purchase Order Commitments similarly mentioned.
This feature is targeted at the following roles:
