With the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2, users can now 'Post Through General Ledger' at the transaction level in several windows.

In prior versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP, users have the option to 'Post Through GL' for transactions that are saved to batches only (except for Bank Reconciliation).

In previous versions, any transaction posted from a sub-module that was not saved to a batch would automatically create a batch 'waiting to be posted' in General Ledger.

If you find this feature is not working for you, a few items to review.
1. For Payables, if you are using a 3rd party or customization in the posting routine, this may be a factor, we have noticed that it is not posting thru as it should, please check with any of them for updates, or try it disabled to see if it is the issue.
2. Also for Payables, if you do not print the General Ledger posting journal, the batch will post TO General Ledger. 
If you would like to see this change in the future, vote on this suggestion.
3. Reminder if you are using AA (Analytical Accounting) there is Company settings under Tools | Setup | Company | AA | Options.


The 'Post Through General Ledger Files' option has been added immediately under the 'Allow Transaction Posting' option in the Posting Setup window to accommodate the new 'Transaction Level Post Through GL' functionality. To open the Posting Setup window: on the Microsoft Dynamics GP menu, point to Tools, highlight Setup, point to Posting, and click on Posting.

Here is a list of windows from which users can 'Post Through General Ledger Files' at the transaction level:
