If you’ve heard any of my ‘soapbox’ special discussions recently, you know that I am a huge fan of the enhancements flooding into Microsoft Dynamics GP. In particular, I love to explore the workflow functionality!
Today I was asked a great question about controls involving turning a requisition into a PO. At first, I was thinking that workflow handled this type of ‘control’. However, after some discussion, I realized I was not listening well enough, and in fact, there is an easy way a requisition user can change the quantity, amount, etc… as they turn the requisition into a PO – after it was approved! YIKES!!!!

Putting a vendor on ‘Hold’ is a helpful option when we want to prevent any payments from being made against a particular vendor. This can be done for a variety of reasons, for example, (and my favorite!) we might put a vendor on hold until we receive their W9 document.
This allows us to continue entering invoices but prevents payments being made to that vendor…. for all of that vendor’s invoices.
But… wait. What if I just have a question about a particular invoice and don’t want to accidentally pay it, but do not want to put the vendor on hold?

Navigation Lists in GP are pretty powerful but often ignored for just a few simple reasons.
Either users are not aware of them, or they get errors when trying to open Navigation Lists so they just give up and never circle back to them.
If you fall into the former group, Navigation Lists can be found by visiting a module within Microsoft Dynamics GP and looking in the left margin (Navigation Pane).
Navigation Lists can save you tons of valuable time by performing many tasks right from within the list itself. For example, if you wanted to put a few vendors on ‘hold’, or approve multiple workflow documents at once, you could do this right from the list window.
“Focus Shawn! Tell us more on Navigation Lists in another blog, for today, we want to learn how to fix that pesky error!” Ok, Ok 🙂 Onto the fix.

I love Excel! Who doesn’t, right? As an accountant, I live in Excel. This is the easiest place for me to track and create Journal Entries. But after all that work, how do we get it into our accounting system, Microsoft Dynamics GP? Easy, we just ‘Paste’ the entry. Simple, I know.
GP Life Hack #103
Dynamics GP offers the cool functionality of pasting in copied data from Excel. This includes distribution reference, the GL Account number, Debit Amount and the Credit Amount:
Every time I hear ‘early bird’, it reminds me of my grandmother and the many times she took me to play Bingo. LOL
Well, almost every time – This time, I’m referring to Summit 2017! GPUG Summit, that is. 🙂 Check it out here –> GPUG Summit 2017 Website
The early bird discount that GPUG Summit offers expires soon – so get the worm! Or, even better, save some money!
As part of the planning committee, I can personally guarantee you that this year’s event in Nashville will make sure that your boots were made for walking!!! It’s top notch and full of over 170 sessions of educational content!
The biggest reason people don’t do more with GP… they don’t learn more. Let’s get to work (and have some fun!) Hear more from the most Irish Cowboy on the planet, @Bob McAdam – check out this video: GPUG Summit 2017 Video Series_1

Last but not least… if you are an end user looking to show off your GP skillz – send me a message – we’d love to have you share your knowledge at a chapter meeting or even possibly present at Summit 2017! (Sorry DC marketing, I like to call it Summit 2017 instead of Summit Nashville 🙂 )
