Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 saw the introduction of the Purchasing All-In-One Document View, and Dynamics GP 2016 R1 sees the introduction of an Inventory equivalent:
The main features of Inventory All-In-One Document View are:
- View quantity in and quantity out transactions for one item in one window
- Accessible from Item Maintenance, many item inquiry windows, navigation lists and the home page
As with the Sales All-In-One Document View I am prepared to be underwhelmed by this feature of the day based on the Purchasing one introduced in Dynamics GP 2015 R2.
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 will soon be released (due late May/early June and, as with previous releases, Microsoft have started a Feature of the Day series on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP Team blog. As I have done with the last three series, I’ll be reposting these blog posts here with a little commentary.
The seventh Feature of the Day is Purchasing All in One Document View – Filter.
This is a newly designed window inside of Microsoft Dynamics GP to enable users to view related purchasing documents in the same window.
Accessible from the Vendor Maintenance window, many purchasing inquiry windows, Navigation lists and even the Home Page this window will save users time in searching for all relevant information for a purchasing document.
The Filter icon allows users to select open and/or historical or saved vs. posted documents in the Purchasing All in One Document View window. The options are specific to each column and saved per user allowing users to customize what they want to see. Specific searches are also enabled in the filter window to narrow down the search results. The clear filter icon with the red x will clear all filters and reset to the defaults.
This window looks like it could be a good addition as I often end up talking clients through finding all of the transactions relating to a purchase order.
