MDGP 2015 Feature of the Day: Payables Management Batch Approval

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series of posts on the new features of, the soon to be released, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015. As I have done for the last two releases, I intend to shadow these posts and add my own opinions on these new feature; the series index is here.

The second Feature of the Day is Payables Management Batch Approval. This feature is an enhancement to the new Workflow 2.0 module introduced in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 which allows users to control the processing of Payables Management batches in a more streamlined fashion.

Payables Management Batch Approval allows users to create mandatory workflow processes around all payables batches. These mandatory processes need to be completed before transactions can be posted. The workflow processes are defined in Workflow Maintenance (Administration area page >> Setup >> Company >> Workflow >> Workflow Maintenance):

Workflow Maintenance

The workflow status appears on the window and actions can be taken directly from those windows, from an email or from a Navigation List.

I haven’t worked with the old workflow module to configure batch approvals in Payables Management; the old workflow always seemed too complex and flakey to use much, although we do have one client using it for General Ledger batches although the sooner we get them upgraded and off it the better.

The roles targeted by this feature are:
