As I have done for the last two releases, I intend to shadow these posts and add my own opinions on these new feature; the series index is here.

The thirty fourth Feature of the Day is Employee Self Service Purchase Requisitions. Dynamics GP 2015 Purchase Requisitions lets a user enter a requisition which ties in with Purchase Order Processing functionality.
 
As part of the Employee Self Service functionality, navigation is streamlined for the requester to see a requisition status or enter a requisition.
 
Users are able to quickly see important information right from their Home Page using the Saved, Ready for Purchase, Pending User Action, Rejected Workflow, and Approval tiles:

The thirty third Feature of the Day is Management Reporter Data Integration. In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, the user can determine the data that is available to the Microsoft Dynamics Management Reporter DataMart, improving the performance and giving the user control over the data selected.
 
The user can choose per company (including sample company) if they want the General Ledger data available for reporting.
 
The user also has the ability to include or exclude Analytical Accounting data for each company:

I am slightly puzzled by this feature of the day as you can simply not import a company into Management Reporter if you don't want to report on it. While I steer clients away from AA where possible, I am not entirely opposed to it, but I do wonder who would want to report on AA without also wanting to be able to report on the GL.

The roles targeted by this feature are:

As I have done for the last two releases, I intend to shadow these posts and add my own opinions on these new feature; the series index is here.

The thirty first Feature of the Day is Void Intercompany Journal Entries. In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, one of the improvements to the intercompany functionality is the ability to view the intercompany distributions of a journal entry from another company.

Having the Intercompany Journal Entry Inquiry window eliminates the need for users to switch between companies to view all originating- and destination-company distributions of an intercompany journal entry. All distributions can be viewed from one company.
