New General Ledger Features for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2!

Hello everyone!  I am excited to tell you about a couple of great new General Ledger features in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2.

1. Users will now have the ability to reverse the General Ledger Year End Close Process in order to open one or more previous historical year(s).  This process could not be done in Microsoft Dynamics GP in previous versions.  An advisory service was needed to do this prior to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2.  This feature will be very helpful in troubleshooting year-end close issues as well as allowing users to post transactions to previously closed years as needed.  Just like closing the year, you should always make restorable backups both before and after re-opening each year in case there are any issues.

*Note that the process will clear all Balance Brought forward records from the prior year, and new records will be created once the year is re-closed.  This feature should be used with caution, and users should open a support case if they have any questions or issues with the process.

2. Another great new feature in this release is the ability to copy and paste a new General Journal entry from Excel.  This should be a great time saver for those of you who have these entries saved in Excel.  Note that at this time, the feature is only available in the General Ledger Transaction Entry window.  Please refer to the documentation for the detailed steps and guidelines.

These are just two of the many great new features in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2, so don’t hold that upgrade off any longer! 

Please follow the links below for the full details about these and many other new features in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2.  Enjoy!
