This 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 sixth new feature is Print Invoices in Functional Currency from SOP Navigation List. This feature of the day is one I requested back in 2014 on behalf of a client; it is the ability to print an invoice in
Functional, by changing the Currency to Print drop-down, from the navigation:
In the feature of the day post, I welcomed this change, and I still do, but unfortunately it doesn’t actually go far enough.
The feature covers printing from the navigation list in originating currency, but, unfortunately, hs not been extended to emailing from the navigation list. Microsoft have met the parameters of the suggestion I made, but have not made the next logical change which would allow emailing; emailing of sales orders have become much more prevalent since 2014.
