Backout or Correct Journal Entry

Today’s #TipTuesday is the “cousin” of last week’s tip on the Copy Journal Entry feature, the Backout or Correct Journal Entry feature in Dynamics GP. This week’s tip was introduced in GP 8, so it too has been out for quite a while. I love this feature and I find many users are still manually reversing or correcting journal entries without utilizing this. The best part about this is the control – a user cannot backout the same entry twice and the original entry plus the new entries are forever linked with the history of any backout and correction. Doing these types of corrections manually means there is always room for error, always questions of “did this ever get corrected?”, etc.

Getting a list of write-offs follow up

Last week, my #TipTuesday was a post about how to get a list of write-offs of receivables transactions. I went through what I called the “easy” way but it had a few caveats. It would work in what I believe to be only the most perfect of scenarios. This is the follow up where I’ll walk through in fairly high level detail a way that should be a lot more reliable as it’s based on the apply table(s) in Dynamics GP.

Getting a list of write-offs

A few months ago, when I first started this #TipTuesday series, one of my first posts was around writing off small customer balances. A reader posted a comment last week with a great question: how do you get a list of invoices written off (for an audit, for example)? What I am going to describe below is what would work if you record write offs using the Write Off Amount field in GP or use the Write Off Documents routine I describe in the blog linked above. The key is this is looking only for documents with a “write-off” amount.

How to follow a conference or event

Today’s #TipTuesday is another non-product tip, but I’ll be knee-deep in sessions at GPUG Summit by the time many of you read this, so in the interest of a “simpler” topic, this is what I’ve come up with!

Today is the first “full” day of the 2018 GPUG (& other UGs) Summit. I get the sense that a lot of users tend to miss out on the news or updates because they aren’t on Twitter, or other social media sites where the news and information flow is often shared first. There are a lot of you out there reading this that may not know or care what a hashtag is, or know what you can do with it.

Two Factor Authentication, part 2

Today’s #TipTuesday is a continuation of last week’s first post on Two Factor Authentication, 2FA for short. Today I am not getting into examples, as I found an interesting article last week after posting my first blog, that illustrates some of why 2FA and password managers are important. Instead of trying to document what already exists, I focused on some other things in this post and end this with where to get setup information for some common sites.
