Microsoft Dynamics 365
When you set up any workflow for approval of G/L account type Lines you need to send the lines for approval. It doesn't matter if you are in a General Journal, Item Journal, Sales Journal, Fixed Asset Journal, etc... If you want to use the Workflow Function for approvals for this (which is a great feature) it halts your ability to use any of these other journals. All you need to do is add the Send for Approval as well as the Approval/Reject functions to every "journal" type and then the workflows would work brilliantly. The one product offering "workflows" current render all of the other journals unusable without paying for an extension. As a customer spending a LOT of money per year for this product I do not think its reasonable to ask us to pay our partners even more money to be able to use the base product the way it is designed to work. Its actually shameful that we have to beg microsoft for this feature.
As part of the presales team at Alithya, we have many prospects and customers asking for this functionality. This seems especially important to CPG, Food & Beverage customers. Most customers prefer to handle these trade promotions within the core ERP as sales activity drive most of the the accruals, so using an ISV is a turn off to most customers.
This has been a hot requirement for multiple prospects that we are demoing to. It has caused us to suggest other ISV's to cover this requirement. We would prefer to have the functionality inside of D365 instead of another software ISV.
Indeed, this is a frequantly asked question by customers why this is not possible...
I couldn't agree more! Having to copy and paste ToolTips is so tedious and prone to errors/drift.
also, sorta-dupe of https://experience.dynamics.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=24c500e3-b974-ea11-99e5-0003ff68dcc1
It´s nice that it exists in the work space but I agree with other comments that this should be available as a report under AR not just for NA but for all countries.
this is a killer user experience bug
Great idea and should be added to the roadmap! Any decent accounting system needs to send statements based on their Terms.
In our industry, the parties that we bill for the projects change frequently. So we need to be able to change the project contracts for running projects. We also use the project contracts to be able to bill for multiple projects on one invoice. So we have dedicated project contracts for certain customers. The projects, attached to these contracts change, so we need to be able to use an existing project contract and attach it to different running projects, to be able to invoice properly.
Still happens in 10.0.16
