With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and Management Reporter CU11, you now have the ability to add new companies without ever opening the Configuration Console.
With the help of the Dynamics GP Team, the following features have been added:
- A new option has been added to enable this company for General Ledger reporting
- A new option has been added to enable this company for Analytical Accounting reporting
- SQL Server Change Tracking will be added to the system or new company database when either of these options are selected
You can see these new settings by clicking on Options under Tools | Setup | Company | Company
For new companies, they will not be integrated into Management Reporter until an option in the Management Reporter area is selected, so they are off by default. Once all of the necessary setup, such as defining a functional currency, setting the main account segment, and configuring General Ledger parameters are completed, the company can be enabled as ready for posting transactions and reporting.
When Management Reporter is configured against Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, you will no longer have the ability to add or remove companies through the Configuration Console. These buttons will be removed, and changes must be made within Dynamics GP.
For more information on how GP companies are integrated, see the CU10 company selection blog post as well.
