26 May GP 2015 Analytical Accounting – New Features in Dynamics GP 2015 R2
Microsoft Dynamics GP enterprise resource planning (ERP) will undergo many new enhancements with the June release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2. In this blog post we will take a look at some of the features and enhancements around accounting and distribution, including the expansion of Dynamics GP 2015 Analytical Accounting.
GP 2015 Analytical Accounting Transaction Lists
This feature helps improve SmartLists and Excel reporting with Analytical Accounting transactions data, firstly by expanding the amount of information to be included as columns in analytical accounting SmartLists and Excel Reports so that more of the substantial amount of data tracked in analytical accounting for each record is now included in SmartLists and Excel Reports.
Microsoft has also expanded how the analytical accounting dimension code information displays in the lists. In prior releases, the lists contained a single column for the analytical accounting transaction dimension code. Thus, if the company is tracking more than one dimension on a transaction, multiple lines are required in the list for a distribution entry. In GP 2015 analytical accounting R2, the SmartLists and Excel Reports have been updated to display a column for each transaction dimension, showing the code assigned for that dimension.
These enhancements improve readability of the reports, and also improves the ease with which users can summarize and work with the data in Excel using pivot table functionality.
Workflow – Payables Transaction Approval
A new workflow type for AP Invoice approval in Workflow Maintenance is now available for GP 2015. The Payables Transaction Approval workflow type will allow you to submit and approve each transaction in the Payables Transaction Entry window. Approval is also available through the email notification and the navigation lists. The PM Batch Approval workflow type is still available as well.
Combine General Ledger Inquiry
In GP 2015 R2’s General Ledger, the inquiry windows have been consolidated so users can view open and historical information in the same window for Summary Inquiry, Detail Inquiry and for Account Summary. Any GoTos or drill-backs now display in the single window rather than have to pick one or the other.
Historical Received Not Invoiced Report
The new SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) Report is based off the current ‘Received Not Invoiced’ report but with the added functionality to add a cutoff date based on transaction date or GL Post Date. This allows users to use the report for historical purposes, and it will allow users to see by specific date what was received into inventory but not invoiced.
