Hello! With the release of GP2015 R2, we have enabled additional document formats for the Sales and Purchasing Module.
The Print Options for Sales Orders currently only support email for ‘Blank’ document formats. This feature will support email for any document format for all Sales Order documents. The formats now available in Sales are: Blank, Short, Long and Other
This feature is supported when printing from the Transaction Entry Window, Navigation Lists, and Print Sales Documents window.
The Print Options for Purchase Orders currently only support email for ‘Blank’ document formats. This feature will support email for any document format for all Purchase Order documents. The formats now available in the Purchasing Module are: Blank and Other.
This feature is supported when printing from the Transaction Entry Window, Navigation Lists, and Print Purchasing Documents window.
There are two ways to use this new functionality. A user can create the templates using Template Generator and assign the template to the company and document type as they would the blank formatted templates. A second option is to add the Web Client functionality that creates a template using the Report Writer report.
To enable this new feature using the Web Client Functionality, follow the steps below:
Open the Dex.ini file from the GP2015 R2 code folder. This is normally found here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics\GP2015\Data
In the Dex.ini, add the following line:
Save the file.
Launch Microsoft Dynamics GP
The new formats will be available options when printing SOP and POP documents.
Note: You might run into issues with using the IsWebClient=True dex switch in a Production environment. The switch was designed as a development switch for testing customizations and was not intended as being used in a production environment. There may be scenarios where functionality has been altered when this setting is set to TRUE. For example if you have existing customized Templates you will be unable to print/send these using the customized format. It will use the Template Generator layout which has no formatting and is generic.
To bypass these issues you can print all of the reports you would like automatically converted to a Template. Once complete remove the IsWebClient=True switch or set this to False. The new converted Templates will automatically be imported into Report Template Maintenance.

It seems like the RM Statement for multicurrency can still not e-mail word template format, i am still getting blank statement when using the multicurrency in GP 2015 R2, which was an issue in GP 2015.
The title "Enable Email Functionality On All Sales and Purchasing Document Formats" is misleading - as detailed further in the post - only the sales orders and purchase orders all available to be emailed in other formats other than "blank".
When will "other", or "short" formats be available to be emailed also from all current documents types?
