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.

Paid Transaction Removel

Last month I wrote about how now is the time to perform some Spring Cleaning on your Dynamics GP system.  With that in mind, I want to highlight the Accounts Receivable Paid Transaction Removal feature, which helps speed up Dynamics GP performance.

This feature is often overlooked as firms do not want to lose historical data.  However, the utility only removes receivables transactions for companies that do not maintain receivables history.  By performing this function, transactions that are fully applied are moved to history, greatly reducing the number of transactions that are reviewed when aging documents or performing other routines.  This greatly improves the performance of Dynamics GP.

Once this process is run for a document, it can no longer have transactions performed against it.  For example, one cannot NSF a removed cheque.  Therefore, it is recommended that companies run this utility for a date at least 90 days prior to the current date.

To access the Paid Transaction Removal, select Sales > Routines > Paid Transaction Removal.

Licensing Shortfalls in Dynamics GP

Spring is here & that means SPRING CLEANING!  With that in mind, system administrators should be thinking about cleaning up their Dynamics system & shoring up their licensing needs.  Thus, I would like to tell everyone about a free utility that will help cleaning up your licensing needs.

Microsoft Dynamics GP is licensed concurrently.  Meaning, if a user is logged into multiple companies at a single time, they will also be using multiple licenses at that time.  For firms with multiple companies running on Dynamics GP & where the number of licenses is very close to the number of actual users, this can present a problem.

For those where purchasing additional licenses is not an option, there is a utility to prevent users from logging into multiple companies at the same time.  To install, download from Customer Source & extract the Prevent_Users_Logging_In_To_Multiple_Companies.zip file.  Then  simply log into Microsoft Dynamics GP & select Tools > Customize > Customization Maintenance, then import the extracted file .

No longer will multiple logins from a single user burn multiple licenses.

Many of our Microosoft Dynamics GP clients use our support desk for assistance with issues that arise from time to time.  We offer various levels of support,from ad hoc to 24/7 availability.  The need for support varies with every client.  Some require lots, some very little.

For those that like to perform their own support, there is a great utility available free of charge that can be downloaded (through a partner) from Microsoft.  This tool, called the Support Debugging Tool, improves error handling & has many great features.  These include:

Vacation Tracking in Dynamics GP

It’s that time of the year when many employee are taking time off to spend time with family.  Whatever holiday you celebrate, this is definitely the time of the year for family.  With employees out of the office, companies must track the amount of time taken by each employee.

Microsoft Dynamics GP has a number of vacation tracking options:

  1. The Human Resources module has a Vacation Calendar option.  This presents a calendar view, with a listing of employees that have taken time off for each day.
  2. The Canadian Payroll module makes Vacation Accruals every pay period.  Each employee has a vacation rate attached to them. With each pay cycle, automated accruals are made to each employee record to track the amount of vacation earned.  When vacation is taken, it comes out of this same pool of time earned.  Further, all the appropriate entries are made to the General Ledger with each transaction.

Adam MacIntosh is a Senior Project Manager at WebSan Solutions Inc with numerous Human Resources & Canadian Payroll implementations completed.
