With the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Round 2, there are three new features in Payables Management that I’m excited to share with you!

Feature #1 – Default Sort Order on Payables Management Checks:

New functionality has been added to Payables Management Setup window, allowing you to set the default sort order that will display in the Print Payables Checks window.

In the previous versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP, if a sort order other than Payment Number was used, then it was necessary to change the sort order in the Print Payables Checks window every time checks were printed.

To allow for this new feature, the Sort Checks By field has been added to the Payables Management Setup window. To open the Payables Management Setup window, on the Microsoft Dynamics GP menu, point to Tools, highlight Setup, point to Purchasing, and then click Payables:



To change the default sort order that will display in the Print Payables Checks window, you can simply click the drop-down arrow next to the Sort Checks By field, highlight the desired sort order, and click OK in the Payables Management Setup window.

There are four possible options available to default 'Sort Checks By':

  1. Payment Number
  2. Name
  3. State-City
  4. Zip Code    


Feature #2 – Doc Attach Integration to Payables:

New functionality has been added to the Payables Transaction Entry window (Transactions >> Purchasing >> Transaction Entry), allowing you to attach and view documents utilizing Document Attachment:



You can:

  1. Attach documents directly to a transaction in the Payables Transaction Entry window.
  2. View documents in the Payables Transaction Entry window that flow from Vendors and/or from associated Purchase Order Processing documents.

Documents that are attached in the Payables Transaction Entry window will not flow to another module in Microsoft Dynamics GP.



Feature #3 – Email Address Based on Document Type – Vendors:

The Email Address Based on Document Type - Vendor feature was added to allow you to assign specific and/or multiple email addresses to specific Payables/Purchasing Document Types for each Vendor.

When the Enable radio button under Email-Address based on Doc Type is active in the Vendor Email Options window, you can utilize the new functionality:



A user can assign specific email addresses to a document type, by clicking the Email Address button (ellipsis) next to the document type in the Vendor Email Options window.

When you click on an ellipsis button next to a specific Document Type, GP  will open the new Email Address Based On Document Type window, where you can select the appropriate check box next to each email address or addresses to assign them to a specific document type. It is also possible to assign the same email settings to other document types in the Email Address Based On Document Type window:
