Post Through the General Ledger at the Transaction Level (New Feature in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2)

    Email | Print

    In Microsoft Dynamics GP, any transaction that was posted in a sub-module was never saved to a batch. Transactions automatically created a batch that had to be posted in the General Ledger. Not anymore! Users now can post through the General Ledger at the transaction level.

    Here’s how

    An additional checkbox has been added to the Posting Setup window. (Administration>Setup>Posting>Posting)

    There is a new checkbox to allow “Post Through General Ledger Files” when the “Allow Transaction Posting” checkbox is also marked.

    Once this checkbox has been marked, a payables transaction entry invoice can be posted at the transaction level:

    The following lists the windows that users may post through the general ledger at the transaction level:

    No need to conduct extra steps when dealing with separate batches. This is one of many new features of Dynamics GP 2018 R2. Be sure to submit your own requests for what you’d like to see in the future!
