Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 New Features

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 isn’t just a pretty face, its smart too!  Read on for our pick of the best new features in Dynamics GP 2016:

System-wide Changes

·       GP2016-Workflow.jpgHTML5 Client: The new HTML5 Web Client includes support for multiple devices, including iPad and Android tablets, as well as multiple web browsers including Internet Explorer, Safari and Chrome.
·         Word templates for batch approval workflow: Workflow batch approvals now have a default Word template for the edit list for General Ledger, Payables and Receivables batches. The edit lists can be emailed to an approver to provide complete information about the transactions in the batches before approving the workflow step.
·         Workflow condition management: New options are available for automatically processing workflows when something in the workflow doesn’t meet specified conditions. If a condition is not met, the workflow can continue to the next step or it can be rejected. 
·         Configurable OData Service points added: Now you can define end-points for an open data protocol (OData) service, which allows Dynamics GP data to be read by any tool that supports OData feeds.


·         Budget import exception report: When you import a budget from Excel, an exception report will list accounts that aren’t set up in General Ledger, as well as any duplicates that are found in the import file. You can use Transaction Entry windows to edit the transactions to use existing accounts, or create the accounts that are listed on the exception report.
·         Edit attachments that flow to transactions: This feature allows you to edit the attachment properties of a document that flowed from a master record. For example, in the case where information flowed from customer to a sales quote, you might then want to send it to the customer via email.  Now you can mark the email checkbox to help automate that task.

Business Intelligence 

·        Power BI report integration: A new web part has been added to Home Pages that allow users to easily add Power BI Reports to their workspace.
·         Create SmartLists from Favorites: You can now create a new SmartList from a favorite using Designer without having to remove extra columns from the default SmartList.


·        GP2016-AllinOneViewer.jpgAll-in-one document view for sales and inventory transactions: Use the Sales All-in-One View window while viewing a customer record in master record windows, such as the Customer Maintenance window, most Inquiry windows, navigation lists, as well as from the Dynamics GP home page. The most recent documents display in the window by default. To see the next set of five transactions, use the navigation buttons under each column.   The Inventory All-in-One View window displays inventory increase and decrease transactions and is accessible from the Item Maintenance window, as well as most item inquiry windows, navigation lists, and the Inventory home page.
·         Prepay purchase order total: Pay the total amount of a purchase order with a prepayment. The prepayment includes taxes, freight, and miscellaneous charges, as well as total of all the line items. Prior to this enhancement, prepayments could not exceed the subtotal amount of the purchase order.

Project Accounting 

·         Project expenses – document attachments: Documents such as receipts now can be attached to employee expense transactions from the PTE Employee Expense Entry window. This enhancement uses the Document Attachment functionality that lets header and line attachments, such as invoices or receipts, to be added to an employee expense. You can also see these attachments in Payables Management after the expense transaction has been posted to that module.
