Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 – Features of the Week 2


According to Microsoft, “Dynamics GP2015 R2 is a testament to the continued investment in the product, the dedication of the development team to deliver on big challenges and drive innovation, and our second-to-none collaboration with our customers and partners.”

To better understand and embrace this evolution, Microsoft, through its large contingent of partners, is introducing one by one the new features available in the next release. Here are the 5 first features:

Day 5 to 8 | Purchasing All in One Document View

This is a newly designed window inside of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 enables 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 most recent documents will default into the window and to see the next set of 5 transactions use the navigation buttons under each column.




By selecting the checkbox for one document the window redisplays all columns with only the related documents.  For example, select a purchase order and then only the receipts, invoices, payments, and returns related to that PO are displayed.




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.




The Options button will allow users to select which columns they want to see in this window.  For example, if customers do not use Purchase Orders, they can uncheck the box and the first column would be Receipts.  By default the Credit Documents column does not display but with this column checked up to six columns of data can be shown.



Day 9 | Combine General Ledger Inquiry

In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 in General Ledger, the inquiry windows have been consolidated.  Now, you can view open and historical information in the same window for Summary Inquiry, Detail Inquiry and for Account Summary.  Any GoTos or drill backs will now go to the single window instead of the user picking open or history.
