Analytical Accounting is an essential module in Dynamics GP, although, its configuration and setup process has always been criticized for its difficulty. With each release, Microsoft is presenting important enhancement to this module in order to simplify the setup process and facilitate administrative tasks.For instance, in a prior release of Dynamics GP, “restrict user access” feature was presented to the Analytical Accounting module.
With the release of Dynamics GP 2018, a new feature is presented on the user access level which enables GP Administrators to copy user access across multiple analytical dimensions with one click.
Navigate to Microsoft Dynamics GP > Tools > Setup > Company > Analytical Accounting > User Access
A new button has been added to the screen, which is titled as “Copy”, click on that button and a window will pop up including two primary fields for the user to copy from and the user to copy access to.
|User Access – Analytical Accounting Module|
|Copy User Access – Analytical Accounting Module|
This feature is essential especially when multiple analytical accounting dimensions are configured in the system. It helps to facilitate the administrative process of maintaining user privileges on the AA module.
