How Microsoft Dynamics GP Can Make A Difference In 2018


Microsoft has a complete vision for business applications, like Dynamics 2018 -newly released- and it goes beyond what a simple stand-alone accounting solution can do. It starts with a unique combination of business intelligence, collaboration, and financial tools embedded across your core business processes. The result—empowered people who make decisions that help increase your margins, improve your cash flow, and ultimately drive your business growth.

New workflows for new accounts, receivings transactions and purchasing invoices

New workflows have been added to control the addition of general ledger accounts, purchase receivings transactions and purchasing invoices. The workflow for general ledger accounts can be initiated from any area of the system for any new accounts, or for any accounts that are in a workflow state, for example when an account has been edited, but not yet approved.

New User Experience Enhancements

A number of enhancements improve the experience of working with Microsoft Dynamics GP. The following subsections describe those enhancements.

Additional sorting options added

A number of enhancements have been added to GP 2018 that make it easier and faster to find information. The new sorting options can be displayed in either ascending or descending order.

 A shortcut to SmartList has been added to the web client.

Now you can navigate to SmartList directly from the web client, making access to SmartList inquiries and reports faster and easier.

New Financial Enhancements

Print a single statement from Customer Maintenance

Now you can print a statement for a single customer, from the Customer Inquiry window for that customer. The statement will use the statement format that’s assigned in the Receivables Setup window.

One payment per invoice set or one payment per-vendor

Now you can choose to make payments on individual invoices, or to choose a single payment per vendor. The choice of payment options is made in the Vendor Maintenance window. The default setting is to generate a single payment per vendor when you build payment batches using the Build Payment Batch window.

Payables checks windows renamed to reflect alternate payment options

Payables Management Checks windows have been renamed to reflect the ability to payments through credit cards, electronic funds transfers, or potentially other methods.
