This post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release New Features – Top Feature Requests series where I am going hands on with the top feature requests of the new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP; it is part of the larger Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release New Features series.
The fifth new feature based on the top requested features, is a new setting to control whether the displaying of the PO is skipped when a purchase requisition is purchased. Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM saw a new feature introduced whereby, when a PR was purchased, the purchase order transactions navigation list was automatically displayed. This turned out to be very disruptive for some clients due to the time it took to load the navigation list (especially when the Reporting Services Reports were deployed and the fact pane visible) that it was amended in Dynamics GP 2018 R2 to ask the user if they wanted to skip showing the navigation list.
The enhancement now is the addition of a drop down list in Purchase Order Setup () where the administrator can choose what happens:
The default option remains Show the message which is the 2018 R2 behaviour.
I like being able to set the option to not show the question let alone the navigation list. Most of the clients I work with always click the option to skip displaying the navigation list, so this option to allow them to set it to ,em>Don’t show the message and don’t open the new PO is going to be very welcome.
