GP 2013 R2 – New Requisitions Workflow

 

In Dynamics GP 2013 R2, a new feature is provide so that you can define and configure workflows for Purchase Requisitions. In this post, a thorough explanation for the setup is provided. Further posts will illustrate the transactions and inquiries.

Requisition Workflow Setup

GO To Microsoft Dynamics GP > Tools > Setup > Company > Workflow > Workflow Maintenance

1

 

In this window, you can setup the workflow for Purchasing, Payroll and Project series. In this post, I will primarily focus on Purchasing – Requisition workflow.

2

I will create a simple workflow to fulfill the following requirements.

  • In case the items within the requisition are inventorial, approval is to be obtained for User A
    • For inventorial items, the item costs is to be filled out and then approved by the supervisor (which is above User A on the hierarchy)
  • In case the items within the requisition are non inventorial, approval is to be obtained from User B
  • The final approval is to be given based on the details filled out above.

 

workflow

 

Workflow managers are defined on the Purchase Requisition approval level, click on this node, and you will be able to define the manager as retrieved from Active Directory.

dsdsd

 

Each step has a corresponding sign in order to determine the type of the step, whether it is a task or approval.

Workflow Options

The options below are related to the overall workflow setup options and configurations.

WWW

As illustrated below, the E-mail notifications is to be activated once the E-mail setup for the workflow is configured. To activate notifications, Go to Microsoft Dynamics GP > Tools > Setup > Company > Workflow > E mail Message Setup.

Workflow Step Options

For each step, you can set up specific conditions related to several fields derived from the requisition transactions such as;

  • Line account number
  • Line unit/extended cost
  • Line quantity
  • Requisition date
  • Vendor ID
  • many other requisition fields

 11111

 

The order of the workflow steps is defined through each step. In each step, there is an order panel to setup dependencies and order among the steps.

In further posts, related topics to requisition transactions and inquiries will be illustrated.

Interesting Finding about KITS

 

The standard process of setting up Kits items in Dynamics GP is straight forward and simple. It is primarily illustrated as follows:

  • Create a new item, and set the item type to Kit (Cards > Inventory > Item)
  • Setup the Kit components on the (Cards > Inventory > Kits)

After the two steps above have been completed, recording a sales for an inventory item with Kit Type will affect both, sales and inventory modules. The following journal entries are primarily recorded:

Account                   Debit                    Credit

AR                              -              

Sales                                                            -

Inventory                                                  -

COGS                             -              

 

Test Scenario

Supposing that the Kit item has been configured as illustrated previously, although, the second step has been missing (no components setup has been configured). How would the Sales Order Processing handle the sales of a Kit Item ?

Sales Order processing record the Sales of a kit item regardless of the fact that no components items have been configured. Sales and Revenue are recorded with no associated inventorial effect neither on the Inventory module nor the General Level.

Account                   Debit                    Credit

AR                              -              

Sales                                                            -

 

Setting Up a Kit Item

Kits Components Item Setup

The bottom line, a Kit item sold on the Sales Order Processing module with no components setup is sold accordingly and handled as a service item.
