What’s New in General Ledger in the New Microsoft Dynamics AX

It's very exciting time for the Microsoft Dynamics AX community with the release of the New Microsoft Dynamics AX (aka ‘AX 7').

While the new Dynamics AX has virtually the same functionality as Dynamics AX 2012 R3, the product team has also shipped some enhancements to the General Ledger area.

Global Journal Entry

The global journal entry form now allows users to create journal entries without having to change companies. Users can now select company they want to create a journal in while creating the new journal in the Global journal entry form. Of course, users will see only companies based on their security.

Accountants that need to post journal entries in many legal entities will NOT have to keep switching companies for every journal entry.
