Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 will soon be released (due late May/early June and, as with previous releases, Microsoft have started a Feature of the Day series on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP Team blog. As I have done with the last three series, I'll be reposting these blog pists here with a little commentary.
The first Feature of the Day is Payables Transaction Workflow. Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 saw the introduction of a new Dynamics Workflow module which replaced the old SharePoint one. This module was further extedned in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and is seeing further improvements in GP 2015 R2.
On the Microsoft Connect website, one of the most requested additions to Workflow was a new Approval Workflow type for Payables Transactions. Well, we asked... and Microsoft delivered.
The Payables Transaction Approval workflow type allows each individual transaction to be submitted for approval (Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 allowed for batches of transactions to be submitted for approval; a workflow type which remains).
I am really pleased to see this Approval type introduced as we have a number of clients who, when shown the Payables Batch Approval workflow, immediately asked if they could submit individual transactions for approval instead of the entire batch.
This Feature of the Day also proves what I have been telling clients for a while; Microsoft do listen to requests for new features, so if there is something you really want, submit it to MS Connect and let me know so I can both vote for it and also publicise it on this site (while writing this I realised how long ago it is since I publicised something).
I'll have some news on the Workflow front in the near future so keep checking back (I should have more to tell you within a couple of weeks or so).
