Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 New Features: Checkbook ID Defaults on Check Batch

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 New Features series in which I am going hands on with the new features introduced in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 (which was released on the 2nd October). I reblogged the new features as Microsoft announced them along with some commentary of how I thought they would be received by both my clients and I. In this series, I will be hands on with them giving feedback of how well they work in reality.

The fifteenth new feature is Checkbook ID Defaults on Check Batch. This feature means that when you create a new EFT payment batch in Payables Management, the Checkbook ID field will be automatically populated from Payables Management Setup:

Payables Batch Entry

Again, this is a small feature, but will save users time selecting the chequebook when creating a payment batch. It never really made sense that the chequebook would default in on a cheque batch, but not on an EFT one. This has now been remedied so both types of payment batch work the same way.
