SmartList Tips – the basics

Today’s #TipTuesday is another one for the newer Dynamics GP users in the community. Recently a user asked me how they could prepare a SmartList for some receivables data they wanted. It turns out they had really not utilized SmartLists at all in their day to day work yet, despite using Dynamics GP for a few years. It occurred to me how little time we spend training users on being more effective with this valuable tool!

Over the next few weeks, I will post different tips about how to utilize SmartList more effectively!

Fixed Assets GL Posting Flow Part 1

I’m starting a new series of posts which are going to be focused on the Fixed Assets module in Dynamics GP. I’ll state upfront I don’t know how long the series will last, nor how frequently I’ll be writing. I am pulling out notes from 3 or 4 years ago when I first noodled this topic, reviewing what I documented at that time and setting up scenarios in my Dynamics GP environment to test and get screenshots for. It may take me a few months to work through the various scenarios and write, so be patient with me!

Today’s post is about part of the General Ledger (GL) posting flow, this will be spread out into bite-sized posts reviewing various posting scenarios in Fixed Assets and reviewing the accounting entries that go with it, tying back to the Account Setup.

Hyphens in Dynamics GP Fixed Assets

Today’s #TipTuesday is about the Dynamics GP Fixed Assets module. I am going to discuss the restriction around the use of hyphens (dashes) in Fixed Asset IDs. Prior to GP 2013, there was no issue with hyphens and many customers who utilized Fixed Assets had created Asset IDs with them as separators. Of the numerous clients I have been to over the years, every single one of them used hyphens as it was easy to read, both on reports and in the screens (where things like underscores often get partially hidden by the UI). There was a consistency in viewing the Asset ID + suffix on reports too, since the “Full” Asset ID with the suffix displays with a hyphen. Using some other character as a separator combined with the use of a hyphen between ID and suffix just plain looks weird (to me).

GP Tech 2019 – Day 1

Day 1 of this year’s GP Tech conference was Monday, September 9th. As in previous years, this is a 2.5 day event, with very full days on the Monday and Tuesday followed by a “morning-only” set of content on the Wednesday. As I write this, it’s Wednesday and I’m catching up on my blogs to get them written and posted before I fly out this afternoon for home.

If you missed my “Pre-Day” post, you can find it here.
