The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series Feature of the Day posts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM, as the most recent versions have been, these posts are in the form of PowerPoint slides; I am reposting them here so they can be read more easily as well as adding my own commentary.

I think this is a valuable additionmto Workflow, although it needs to be handled with some caution to avoid swamping users with emails (the same as the notification emails themselves).
