Last week, we highlighted ten new features in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2, and today, we will highlight nine more features demonstrated in Microsoft’s Feature of the Day series. Again, GP 2016 R2 is following the GP Roadmap shared below.
Bank Reconciliation Tracks History
The first announcement from the GP community blog, a major change for users in GP 2016 R2 is that there is a new process for reconciled transaction maintenance in routines. This improves bank reconciliation performance and when users remove history, the software will now remove reconciled transactions.
Credit Limit Warning Calculator for unposted Credit Docs
A big update from GP, users can now adjust the credit limit warning calculation when a cash receipt is entered and applied against an outstanding invoice.
SafePay file displays Check Name from Check
Improving on visibility and security, the name from the check will now be used in the SafePay file as opposed to defaulting from the vendor card.
POP to Fixed Asset link to include taxes
Taxes are a necessary part of life. New in GP 2016 R2, users can now include taxes as part of the acquisition cost in the Fixed Assets module. Simply put, a user can take the tax from the purchase receipt and include it with the capital item.
SmartList Designer in Advanced Lookup
Announced on November 2, 2016, the ability to assign SmartList Designer Lists to Advanced Lookup windows will help users make the most of Dynamics GP.
Batch Error Message Includes User ID
If you’ve ever had to deal with the “This batch is being edited by another user,” message, you’d hope to be able to know who’s editing said batch. This new feature will ID the user editing the batch.
SmartList Favorite Protection
For those of you who love SmartLists and have SmartList favorites, this feature is for you. Now other users won’t change them. Users will now be able to password-protect SmartList favorites from editing.
Cancel PO when Linked to Requisition
Helpful for many users, an important Feature of the Day update is the ability to Cancel a Purchase Order when it’s linked to a Requisition.
Requisition Inquiry Visual
The 19th and final improvement to Dynamics GP 2016 R2 that we will be talking about today is that a visual will appear in requisition inquiry when all quantities will not be fulfilled.
