Required & Link Fields in Microsoft Dynamics GP
Is it hard for you to distinguish between the fields in a window that are Required and Link Fields?
Use the User Display Preferences window to change the color of the Required Fields and Link Fields so you can easily recognize these fields. These settings are per user basis only and not system wide.
In order to change your display, go to:
Click Apply and use Preview window to view your selections. Choose OK to save your changes. Choose OK again to close the User Preferences Window. These changes will take effect the next time you log into Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Are you Aware of the Benefits of SafePay/Positive Pay?
At CAL, we’ve recently had a large number of requests for SafePay. (aka Positive Pay)
To help protect you against check fraud, banks are beginning to require the advanced notification provided by SafePay for Dynamics GP.
The Safe Pay module in Dynamics GP can be configured to create an electronic file with the details of your daily check run. The file then is transmitted to your bank daily for them to verify each check number against the date, dollar amount and payee submitted for each check. If any of the items don’t match, you will be notified.
If you have Business Ready Licensing ( Business Essentials or Advanced Management edition of GP) you already own this module. Please contact us if interested in setting it up.
If you have Modular Based Licensing (Standard or Professional edition), the SafePay module can be purchased.
Contact us if you would like a proposal for the addition of this to your current system.
