Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 was released in May, and for the last few months we’ve been going over the dozens of new features it delivers, first as introductions, and now in more detail. Last week, we covered the new all-in-one-view for sales, and today we’re going to take a closer look at another new feature that we’ve previously introduced: the all-in-one view for inventory.
The purchasing all-in-one view that came with the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 has proven to be a very popular feature, and now we have all-in-one views for not only sales, but also inventory. The new Inventory All-in-One View window enables you to quickly see all documents that are related to an item’s transaction. That means that if, for example, the warehouse manager is asking about the stock for an item and where it is located, you can select the item, then view all quantity movements for the item, such as purchasing transactions, transfers, adjustments, and sales for that item, all in one window.
By default, the Inventory All-in-One View window has three columns, in this order:
- Quantity In
- Quantity Moved
- Quantity Out
The Quantity In column displays transactions whereby quantity is increased, such as purchasing receipts, sales returns, invoice returns, increase adjustments, manufacturing trx, and stock count variances. Quantity Moved displays transactions whereby quantity is moved from site to site or bin to bin. And the Quantity Out column displays transactions whereby quantity is reduced, such as sales invoices, purchasing returns, invoices, inventory transfers in Project Accounting, service calls, depot management transactions, manufacturing trx, and stock count variances.
Each column displays the last 5 transactions by document date, newest to oldest, but you can choose to reverse this order. Click the Next 5 button to display more transactions. You can also filter the data for easy searching.
