Transaction Entry

With this new feature, General Ledger Transaction Entry and Journal Entry Inquiry windows will default the scrolling window expanded or collapsed based on the previous display state.

This is promised to be a user based default, so it will be interesting to see if it is actually user based or based upon the Dex.ini file which would make it a machine setting rather than a user one.

The fourth Feature of the Day is Batch Edited Message:

This batch is being edited by JodiCh. Please try again later.

This is a simple, but oh so welcome, enhancement to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2; when a user tries to interact with a batch which is being edited by another user, the message will no longer simply say it is being edited by another user, but will now name the other user who is editing the batch.

No longer will I need to write, or deploy, SmartLists to users allowing them to see who is locking batches (I still might so the administrator can take a global view of their system) to simply see which user is preventing a batch from being posted.

The second Feature of the Day is SmartList Favorite Protection:

SmartList Options

This new feature allows a password to be set which will protect SmartList Favourites from being modified; when a user tries to modify a SmartList Favorite they will be prompted to enter a password.

The downside of this setting is that it is a global setting for all SmartList Favourites and not a password which can be set differently for each Favourite. This point was mentioned to Microsoft at reIMAGINE 2016.
