Here are some of the new exciting General Ledger features that Microsoft Dynamics GP has to offer in its new release GP 2013 R2:
Dynamics GP users will now have the option to reverse the General Ledger Year-End Closing Process in order to open one or more previous historical years, whereas in previous releases one was not able to perform this, according to Andy Sather, member of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Community.
This feature will be very helpful in troubleshooting year-end closing issues as well as allowing users to post transactions to previously closed years. Remember to make restorable backups both before and after re-opening each year in case there are any issues. Be cautious, though, because this process will clear all Balance Brought forward records from the previous year and new records will be created once the year is re-closed.
Also, users will now be able to quickly copy data from Excel sheets into the Financial Transaction entry form. Validation rules exist and if any errors pop-up they can be easily corrected. This new system capability will be a great time saver for those Dynamics GP users who prefer to save their entries in Excel files first. Note that for now this feature is only available in the General Ledger Transaction Entry window.
