Microsoft Dynamics GP Tip and Trick of the Month
Batch Recovery
Status of “Posting Interrupted” = Batch will try to continue to process/post. Therefore, if there is a network or server issue, make sure that is fixed prior to clicking on Continue.
Status of “Edit Required” = Batch will return to Origin module for editing when you mark and click on Continue. Do not try to post again – this message means there is something wrong with the transaction(s) in the batch. Print an edit list for assistance with finding the errors.
Intacct Tip of the Month
Editing an Entries Layout
In any given Intacct transaction entry screen – Journal Entry, Accounts Payable Bill, Purchase Order and so on – there is the entry grid found toward the bottom of the transaction entry screen. While some information is contained on the first entry line, such as the GL Account, Amount, and perhaps a couple of Dimensions like Department or Location, often additional Dimensions are located in what is known as the “Window Shade.” This is an area that drops down to show additional details, like more Dimensions.
While this is great to see Dimensions you use seldom, it can be a bit of a hassle to drop the Window Shade down for Dimensions you require often or on every transaction. Fortunately, Intacct has the answer! You can modify the entries layout on every transaction entry window. Here’s how:

  • Click the More Actions button located in the upper right-hand corner

  • Click Edit Entries Layout

  • Drag the Dimensions you would like from the Window Shade area to the Line Entry

  • If you’d like the change to apply to all the forms (Create, Edit and View) mark the Apply checkbox

  • Click the Save Layout button
