5 Signs You Need an Upgrade from QuickBooks to ERP
Think back to when you first decided to use QuickBooks. At the time, it seemed like a simple and easy-to-use accounting system that suited your business needs. You weren’t alone in that decision. QuickBooks, without a doubt, is considered one of the most beloved options for many users around the world. Many small to mid-sized organizations find that QuickBooks is straightforward and, most of all, affordable for their business scale. Your decision, however, was likely made before your business started growing and your accounting department started experiencing the limitations of QuickBooks. It turns out that for many businesses, QuickBooks eventually becomes too simple and frustratingly rigid, which can be costly in the end.

So, what’s your next step? You need […]

Finding the right columns for your everyday Smartlists in Dynamics GP
We all know how powerful Dynamics GP Smartlists are, but sometimes it can be hard to find the right columns/fields to build them out with additional information that we need. One that comes up quite a bit, is the Batch ID associated with posted account transactions. When you add the Batch Number column to the Account Transaction smartlist under the Financial folder, it comes up blank for posted journal entries. Luckily, this is a simple column add once you know the name of the column you need. Open up the Account Transactions default Smartlist (Smartlist > Financial > Account Transactions > *).   In my Account Transactions Smartlist below, I have added Batch Number and Document Status columns. Notice that the Batch Number column is blank for all Open transactions (see Document Status).     Click on Columns then Add. Search for Originating Source in the column list. Highlight that column, […]
Choosing the Right Tools for Auditing Activity Inside Dynamics GP
Change… It is something that every organization faces.  Whether it is the change of a business process, change of personnel, change of a software solution or change of data within a software.  Some types of change are more complex than others, but even something as simple as the changing of data within a system can result in a significant amount of resources being expended.  Frequently determining the how, why, when and who behind the change will take exponentially longer than the actual change itself.  In order to reduce the effort spent on answering these questions, we will review the key features of the tools available for Dynamics GP that will help audit the system.  Our goal is to provide you with a succinct snapshot of the options available for Dynamics GP and help narrow down the correct solution for your organization.  Below are four options that will help you answer […]
Reconciling Inventory to the GL in Dynamics GP
There are multiple ways to reconcile sub-ledgers to the GL in Dynamics GP, the Reconcile to GL routine being one of my favorite, but there can be times when you’re still stumped wondering what happened? I had a client recently face this situation. They ticked and tied every transaction to the GL, but their Inventory still did not balance to the GL. In the end, it all came down to a sales return transaction. The quantity being returned went into the Returned bucket instead of On Hand.     When the inventory is put into the Returned quantity field, it changes the distributions for the transaction and puts the distribution type as “RETURNS” instead of “INV” if it were put back in inventory.      If you’re using the Inventory Historical Stock Status report in an attempt to reconcile, the quantity returned will not hit this report.     To […]
Creating a Formula-Based Enterprise Custom Field to Track Rollup Work Hours
I was recently posed with a challenge to create a custom Microsoft Project Online field to calculate the difference between a custom numeric value and Actual Work, specifically the rollup of number of work hours completed on project tasks. Simple enough right? I knew it could be done but the execution of meeting this customer requirement wasn’t straight forward. The client utilized the work column to forecast their efforts like most MS Project users but they also wanted track committed hours which was the effort their sales team proposed to their clients. They wished to do this because at times work could be adjusted for ramp up, setup time, and other tasks non-billable tasks. What they wanted to capture was the true effort their resources were doing above the sales proposed estimate so they could consider past data to more accurately quote customers in future engagements. With some simple configuration […]
The Importance of a Good Unit of Measure Schedule in Dynamics GP
When configuring inventoried items in Microsoft Dynamics GP, we need a clear understanding of the types of transactions which occur against inventoried items. You purchase items, sell items, transfer items between sites and bins, consume items during production, and produce items. That is A LOT of transactions. But…if you think about it, you probably already enter these transactions using Microsoft Dynamics GP. So why not let Dynamics GP track your inventory for you? Okay, so this is a great idea, right?! But where do you start? Obviously you need to know what items are considered inventoried items and you need to know where your items are located.  However, just as important is your unit of measure schedule! We just looked at six transaction types which may occur against an item, but each inventory transaction can occur in different units of measure. You may purchase a box of 50 units but […]
Unit of Measures Design with Item Configuration Equals Inventory Accuracy
In the Importance of a Good Unit of Measure Schedule blog, we walked through the importance of unit of measure schedules and how to design a unit of measure schedule. Using a well-designed unit of measure schedule and proper configuration of inventoried items in Dynamics GP, enables your system to accurately track inventory balances. An item card in Dynamics GP maintains a multitude of information about an item such as default accounts, tracking options, valuation methods, engineering data, and much more. In this blog we will focus on the setup of a item card with relation to default purchasing and selling units of measure. To configure these default units of measure, there are four windows that you need to access – yes, you heard right, four windows! But…you want accurate inventory balances, correct? Let’s take a look at the four windows we will review:  Item Maintenance Window: Defines the Unit of Measure […]
Microsoft PowerApps as a replacement for InfoPath
After the release of Microsoft PowerApps, many Office365 subscribers are thinking that Microsoft PowerApps is designated as replacement of InfoPath. Microsoft PowerApps provides many features that are available in InfoPath and enables enterprise users to create, collaborate, communicate and manage mobile apps without having developer skills. PowerApps can also be easily integrated with any other services of the Office365 ecosystem. From this perspective, Microsoft PowerApps can be hyped as the successor of InfoPath. However, Microsoft PowerApps has some limitations that make it unsuitable to replace InfoPath. Even, Microsoft doesn’t support to replace InfoPath Forms with PowerApps. Power Apps supports creating an app from the data stored in the lists. PowerApps is considered as a successor for custom forms and it is based on an open source version of the software called Apache Cordova powered by resources from Azure app Service. PowerApps allows to easily create and share apps from the […]
