Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 New Features: Vendor Document Number Added to Purchasing All-in-One View

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 eighth new feature is Vendor Document Number added to Purchasing All-in-One View. This feature adds the Document Number to the Payments and Credits column of the Purchasing All-in-One View (Purchasing area page » Enquiry/Inquiry » Purchasing All-in-One View):

Purchasing All-in-One View

This feature is a good feature which will provide additional information to users that they have found the correct information.

MS Dynamics World Article: Diving into Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018: 6 areas of community-driven enhancements

Microsoft Dynamics GPYesterday, MS Dynamics World published a I wrote for them on the new functionality of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018.

In just over three months, this is the second post I have written which has not been for my own blog (the last one was #GP2018 Feature of the Day: Workflow Unplugged. It is obviously quite a new experience for me, writing for other blogs, but it was a good experience.

This post is a round up of the new functionality in 6 areas of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM; I won’t post spoilers of the article, so you will need to go here to read it.

Hands On With MDGP 2018 RTM New Features: DocAttach Available on More Windows

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM has now been released and I have been taking a Hands On look at the installation and configuration of the new version.

I am now going to take a hands on look at the new and enhanced features introduced in Microsoft Dynamics GP. Rather than do this as a continuation of the Hands On series I wrote in December, as originally intended, I am going to split it out into a separate hands On With the features post. The series index is for this new features series, can be found here.

The first of the features announced by Microsoft was the introduction of DocAttach on more windows: the DocAttach button on the action pane makes the function more accessible to users. The windows updated for this are:

  • General Ledger Transaction Entry
  • Receivables Transaction Entry
  • Asset General Information
  • Employee Entry
  • I-9 Form (Payroll)
  • Journal Entry Enquiry
  • Payables Transaction Entry Zoom
  • Receivables Transaction Entry Zoom

I quite like the DocAttach function in Microsoft Dynamics GP, although I am careful to be clear with clients and prospects that is is document attachment and not document management.

While it’s good to see DocAttach getting wider exposure across Microsoft Dynamics GP on the action panes, it’s especially nice to see Fixed Asset Management getting some DocAttach improvements as many of my clients have images of their assets to store:
