Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 New Feature Blog Series Schedule Announced

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft’s Terry Heley today published a blog post outlining the schedule for the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 New Features blog series.

This blog post series is from the Dynamics GP Support and Services Blog which usually covers in depth the new features after launch; usually there is a series of posts by the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog which precedes the launch of the new version which I am still hoping will happen this year.

There are five key areas of new functionality in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018:

  1. Comprehensive Doc Attach
    Today, we introduce the next evolution with comprehensive Doc Attach on most master record windows, inquiry windows and transaction entry windows.
  2. User Experience
    Giving users easier and faster ways to get to and find the data they are looking for to make decisions based off the information stored in Microsoft Dynamics GP.
  3. Optimize Financials & HRP
    Recognizing the voice of our customers, you’ve provided the feedback, we’ve optimized your Financials and HR/Payroll experience in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018
  4. Workflow
    With the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018, we continue to extend the capabilities of Workflow. In addition to new workflows such as GL Account and Purchase Invoice, we’ve added workflow capabilities like copy step and reminder emails.
  5. Power “Suite” Evolution
    Support Paging and Filtering in OData Services, Support OData V4 and what you all have been waiting for GP Power BI Content Pack.

I’ll not list the detailed schedule, but the new features blog series will run from 5th December through to 15th February.

The issue encountered, is that when multiple lines for the same product at the same cost are added to the PR, approved and converted to PO, these lines are consolidated. This results in loss of information as only one item description or comments are pulled through to the PO.

To illustrate this, I created the following example.

First, create a PR with at least two lines. I have used the 2-A3284A product and changed the description on both rows:
