… Continuing From Last Week
Last week, we introduced two major advances that we can look forward to from the upcoming Microsoft Dynamics GP release scheduled for December this year. This week, we wish to introduce two more new features in the Dynamics GP 2015 release.
In the previous post we discussed about the benefits of the innovative Service-Based Architecture and the organization of the Team Manager functions, but if you missed it… not to worry! You can read all about it here.
In this week’s edition, we will examine the other two enhancements in GP 2015:
- Identity Management
3. Identity Management
The Organizational Account User Authentication allows users to be authenticated for Microsoft Dynamics GP using organizational account credentials, also known as Azure AD accounts. This allows the user to log into the Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client using the same credentials that are used for Office 365, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, or many other cloud applications. This provides a single sign-on experience for Dynamics GP Web Client with other cloud applications.
Secondly, several workflow enhancement tools have been included in the upcoming release…
HRP Workflow Pending Approval Navigation List
This new function targets the Human Resources and Payroll Team Managers and its objective is solely to simplify their work. These approvers now have one place to view and approve multiple employee self-service changes. This navigation list lets managers see all their assigned tasks including Payroll Timecards, Employee Profile, Employee Skills, Payroll W4, and Payroll Direct Deposit.
General Ledger Batch Approval
This allows users to create workflow processes around General, Clearing and Budget transaction batches.
Payables & Receivables Batch Approval
It allows users to create workflow processes which need to be completed before defined document processes. The workflow status appears on the window and actions can be taken directly from those windows, from an email or from the Navigation List.
This allows users to control the setup and editing of vendors, and create workflow processes which need to be completed before defined document processes.
Microsoft has announced that Business Portal and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 runtime will be discontinued from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015. The plan is for Business Portal to be phased out as applications or modules are released inside Dynamics GP that replace the same functionality.
