This 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 Automate full General Ledger Reconcile Financial enhancement.
This feature means you can now select All to have Dynamics GP reconcile through the years in order from oldest to newest.
In the Reconcile Financial Information window (), users can now select All for all years to be reconciled in order from the oldest year to newest year. This is a change from the previous functionality where users had to run the reconcile process for each year in turn:
A warning message will appear if detailed transactions do not exist for any historical years selected:
I can see how this new feature could be useful if all companies did need to be reconciled, but for UK companies it is also incredibly risky. After a year end close has been performed, the figures should not be changed, which this option would allow. I need to discuss this with clients, but I can see us creating a customised version of the window without the new All option.
