Top 5 New features Dynamics (GP) 2010 (Beta release)

The beta release of Dynamics (GP) 2010 is here.

Our Dynamics (GP) Product Manager is currently in the process of testing this new code so its to early to give you our findings as yet. However I thought I would take this opportunity to wet your appetites with some of the New features that caught our attention.

2010 is rich in new features so we thought we would do our top 5 and as is traditional with these count downs we will start at 5 and work our way up to 1.

So coming in at number 5

5.Collections Management: View unposted cash amounts

This has been one of those annoying little over sites for credit controllers , well from version 2010 unposted cash amounts are now displayed in the collections main window.

Another new entry (quite literally) at number 4

4.Receivables Management: Enter negative cash receipts

You can now decrease a deposit by entering a negative cash receipt. This shows as a deposit with a negative amount (we have had a few support cases in the past that would have been easier to resolve with this functionality).

A simple piece of functionality at number 3 , however it is one that will make a lot of people happy.

3.Exclude inactive accounts/customers/creditors/sales people etc. from lookups

If your bogged down in active accounts etc. this should make lookups and data entry so much quicker.

At number 2, the word template comes of age

2.Word templates

Predefined word templates come with 2010 from purchase orders to invoices, I have included the list below of the Report writer reports that can now be done with word templates. Good bye to those clunky report writer reports.
