Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release New Features: Additional User Defined field in General Ledger Transaction Entry

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release New Features series where I am going to echo the posts from the Dynamics GP Support and Services Blog, while adding some commentary, on the new features introduced in the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release which is now available.

This post is on the Additional User Defined field in General Ledger Transaction Entry Financial enhancement.

This feature sees two new user-defined fields added to the Transaction Entry and supporting windows and fields.

User Define labels for the user defined fields are at the bottom of the General Ledger Setup window (Financial area page » Setup » General Ledger):

General Ledger Setup

The field length for the User defined label is 15 characters and the size of the user defined fields is 30 characters.

To support the new fields, the GL transaction tables have been updated to have two new fields: User_Defined_Text01 and User_Defined_Text02.

The General Ledger Transaction Entry window (Financial area page » Transactions » Transaction Entry) has been updated to have these fields above the scrolling window:

transaction Entry

The user defined fields have been added to the following reports:

  • Edit list and Posting journal.
  • The fields are available in Report Writer to be added to other reports as needed.
  • The size of the user defined fields is 30 characters in the transaction entry window.
General Posting Journal report

The Journal Entry Inquiry window (Financial area page » Inquiries » Journal Entry Inquiry) has been updted to show the fields:

Journal Entry Inquiry

The Account Transaction SmartList has also been updated to make the fields available:

SmartList Columns window

Fields to record new information on journals are always welcome, but there has been no mention made of Integration Manager or eConnect having been updated to allow the new fields to be integrated.
