Six Tips for Getting the Most Out of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010

Microsoft Dynamics® GP 2010 has brought a ton of new functionality to our lives, but there are even more ways to get the most out of Microsoft Dynamics GP, and here are just a few:

  1. General Ledger- Drilldown with Account Rollups
    Account Rollups let you consolidate information from various accounts and then be able to drill down into the account details. These are useful for things like departmental totals with drilldowns. Accounts do not have to be consecutive and rollups can include Actual, Budget and Calculated information.
  2. Purchasing and Inventory- Prioritize Your Vendors
    Payables Management includes a 3 digit alphanumeric field used to prioritize vendors. Use this to actively decide which vendors are critical now, not when a crisis hits. This field can be used to select vendors during the check selection process.
  3. Sales- Deliver the goods with Mapping
    In Sales Order Processing, the Push Pin Icon next to the address ID opens up a map of that location. The map can be generated via the internet or locally if Microsoft Map Point is installed. This is useful for pinpointing customer locations for delivery.
  4. Fixed Assets- Gain Clarity with Separate Depreciation Posting
    Post Depreciation to the GL separately from New Assets and Retirements. Separating these allows easy review of Asset Additions/Retirement for correctness without having to wade through all of the depreciation posting entries.
  5. SmartList and Reporting- Rename SmartList Columns
    If you don’t like columns with names in your SmartList simply rename them. Open a SmartList and click Columns. Change a column name in the Display Name column and save the SmartList as a favorite.
  6. System- Check Your Security
    There is a master security switch like the master breaker on your home. It’s in Tools->Setup->Company->Company. It is a little security check box. Make sure the box is checked and that people can’t access this window.
