A Dynamics GP Management Reporter Income Statement can easily be created from scratch.
You just need to create a Row Definition and a Column Definition, and then include them in a Report Definition, and print.
These are the three components:
Here is a Row Definition:

If you’re used to FRx, Management Reporter will feel very comfortable to you.
Here is a quick video I put together that shows a glimpse of Management Reporter:
A good way to get started is to try the Report Wizard to create your first few reports. It walks you through the process of creating a report, and takes advantage of your chart of accounts and your account format.
This is a quick demo that shows this being used:
Our returning road warriors from Convergence 2013 indicated that one of the most popular new features in Dynamics GP 2013 is the ability to select the printer you want to print to when you print a report from Dynamics GP.
In prior versions you could only print to the default printer specified in Dynamics GP.
Just to make it sound more important let’s refer to it as Contemporaneous Printer Selection.
Here’s how the Contemporaneous Printer Selection feature looks when you print a report to the screen and then select to print it to a printer:
Here’s a very short video that shows this being used:
Dynamics GP 2013 includes new functionality that allows you to create prepayments in accounts payable and assign them to specific purchase orders. You can easily do this from the Purchase Order Entry screen. You can enter a prepayment amount that you can then generate a check for using the regular computer check functionality in GP. Or you can create a manual check transaction that is associated with the purchase order.
Lorna Link at InterDyn BMI covers this topic in much more depth at the ERP Software blog, here: http://www.erpsoftwareblog.com/2012/10/gp-2013-new-feature-purchase-order-prepayments/
I created this short video to show this new functionality in action: http://youtu.be/RXB7-xmf_jo
I put together some videos showing some of the new functionality in Dynamics GP 2013. This playlist includes the current collection: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPx395HRNzZDrNBOoZuDX64tehFukqyOH
Included in this list:
- Multiple Selection of Serial Numbers
- Selecting Serial Numbers on Drop Ship Orders
- PO Tolerances
- Suggested Items
- Home Page Changes
- Consolidating Invoices
This is a handy enhancement that will speed up the selection of serial numbers in GP. Prior to GP 2013 you had to individually select serial numbers one at a time and insert them into the selected area on various screens in GP. In GP 2013 you can select ranges or several individual numbers at once and then insert them into the selected area.
This is an example of what available serial numbers look like, showing several selected at once:
This is a PowerPoint from Microsoft that explains this functionality: GP2013 FOD Multi-Select Serial Numbers
This is a quick video I created to show this in action.
This is a simple one, but one I like a lot. I used to feel apologetic when I demoed the Fixed Assets module; and when it came time to add a new fixed asset I would scroll to the last asset, and then increment the last asset number by 1 for the new asset.
Now the system does it for you. Just Select the option on the Fixed Asset Company Setup:
If you use the Advanced Distribution functionality in GP and run the Fulfillment Workflow component, you can combine numerous orders onto one invoice to your customer. This is handy if you receive many orders from your customers and they want all shipments for a given period of time, consolidated onto one invoice.
To use the this function you must catch all your Fulfillment Order Invoices just prior to the “Confirm Shipment” step in your workflow.
This is the screen from which you select the order shipments you want to consolidate:
Here is a Microsoft PowerPoint that explains this a bit: GP2013 FOD Consolidated Invoicing
Here is a quick video showing this in action.
Here are a couple of drawbacks:
- If you go past the “Confirm Shipment” step, too bad; you won’t be able to consolidate the orders
- This seems like an ideal function to include in the sales transaction list action pane; it’s not there
Dynamics GP 2013 includes enhanced functionality to more easily track serial and lot number items on drop ship orders. If you’re shipping orders from your vendors directly to your customers, this functionality allows you to capture the serial and lot numbers early in the process. This will improve the control and traceability of serialized and lot controlled items.
This is a PowerPoint from Microsoft on this functionality: GP2013 FOD – Track Serial Lot on Drop Ship
Here is a quick video that shows this in action.
One of Microsoft’s MVP’s, Jivtesh Singh, created a nice demo of the new web client available with Dynamics GP 2013. Take a look at it: http://youtu.be/BvLCE3ccwjU
