Project Types in Microsoft Dynamics GP

Project Types in Microsoft Dynamics GP


The Project Accounting module in Dynamics GP is a very robust application enabling users to monitor the financial results of a project. One of the best features with this module is that it ties in with all the other modules within Dynamics GP. Therefore, if an invoice needs to be posted it can be done in the same system. For a company to use the Project Accounting module correctly it must first understand its current project structure and what is required in terms of KPI’s and reporting. Once this has been decided the company will have to choose the project type to use for this project. There are three types of projects in Dynamics GP:

 

Cost Plus – Customer pays for the actual project cost plus an added margin percentage

Fixed Price – Customer pays a fixed fee for the project

Time and Materials – Customer is billed for all costs that are incurred on a project

Top Six Reasons to get EDI for Dynamics GP!


If a business wants to be successful in this modern digital world, it must remain innovative. Operating as a fully digital firm goes beyond just having an electronic communication system installed. It’s about running the company using ERP software to streamline the business and create B2B integration. In this new digital era, the demand for B2B integration is on the rise and is turning into a requirement in order to work with most companies.


Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents. It allows businesses to send documents to one another using an electronic format. This standard template can then be read by different systems to locate information. The most common documents that are sent using the EDI template are purchase orders, purchase invoices, advance ship notices, bills of lading, inventory documents, shipping documents, payment documents, and even some custom ones.

The Benefits of EDI

Reduced Costs
By sending a document using EDI, a company can reduce its costs on printing, reproduction, storage, filing, and document retrieval. This also frees up the individual to focus on more important tasks.

Improved Data Quality
One of the most common areas for human error is data entry. By using EDI to import the data from the document into the system, there is less room for error resulting in better data quality.

Shorter Business Cycle
Companies using EDI will have a shorter business cycle because they receive the documents quicker. A transaction that use to take up to five days to complete can now be completed within an hour. Orders and payments will be processed a lot quicker which will increase the cash flow of the company.

Improved Data Security
EDI is a secure way to transmit data from one computer to another. Encryption and decryption programs along with passwords are used to ensure that the data is safe while being transmitted.

Ease of Auditing
Since EDI is transmitting all the data into the system, there is less room for any errors so therefore auditing will become much easier. Reports can be created for all the EDI transactions and then presented to the auditor, making the whole auditing process quicker and easier.

Strategic Business Benefits
Adding EDI into your current Dynamics GP environment will strengthen businesses and create strategic business benefits. Using digital transactions, businesses can always be up-to-date with all the transactions statuses. This knowledge will help the business to make better and faster business decisions going forward.

Field Level Security in Dynamics GP

Many companies have a need to grant Dynamics GP users access to a window, but not all functionality within that window.  For example, many clients will want users to be able to input invoices, but not post them individually.  Instead, they will force users to save invoice transactions to a batch such that a manager can review the source documents and post.  An easy way to achieve this is through Field Level Security which allows the Dynamics GP admin to restrict user access to singular buttons within a window (such as the Post button).

To configure Field Level Security, navigate to Microsoft Dynamics GP > Tools > Setup > System > Field Level Security

This will open up the Field Level Security window.  Within the window, select Add to create a new restriction.

[caption id="attachment_1442" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Field Level Security window[/caption]

This will open the Field Security Maintenance window wherein one defines a the window and field to restrict.  Within this window, enter an ID and Description for the restriction.  Then select the Product Name, Form Name, Window Name & Field Name using the look-ups within the window.

Updated Reconcile to GL Functionality in GP 2013

Accounting staff must always ensure that the general ledger and the sub-ledgers are in balance at all times.  Often, our support team will be asked to assist when they aren’t in balance.  When this occurs, we generally run the Reconcile to GL routine in GP in order to determine the cause.

Dynamics GP 2013 includes a new feature to help reconcile the Bank & Inventory sub-ledgers to one’s General Ledger.  This functionality previously existed for Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable sub-ledgers.  Further the Reconcile to GL window now includes both the General Ledger and Sub-ledger balances on it for quick review.  The additional sub-ledgers for reconcile will help ensure customers have a quick and easy way of ensuring their records are accurate.
