    For Dynamics 365 Online, Microsoft sends email notifications of scheduled updates, storage limit warnings etc. to the administrators of the organisation. It’s possible to add additional email addresses such as Dynamics partners to this list as well. It is a good idea to include the Dynamics partner (if one is involved), as this allows them to work with the customer in a proactive way to manage any upcoming upgrades, storage issues etc.

    The following steps show how to add recipients to the notifications list.

    Step 1: Go to and sign in with your login details.

    Step 2: Click Office 365 menu bar and select Admin. You will need to have the System Administrator Security Role to access the Admin section.


    Step 3: Click Admin Centers and then select Dynamics 365.


    Step 4: In the Instances tab, select an instance that you would like to receive notifications for i.e. Sandbox, Production, etc. and then click Notifications.


    Step 5: Enter the email address you want to receive notifications for the selected instance and click Save.


    And that’s it. Now your partner will receive notifications automatically, which will help them to be proactive in supporting you using Dynamics 365.

    Last week, my #TipTuesday was a post about how to get a list of write-offs of receivables transactions. I went through what I called the “easy” way but it had a few caveats. It would work in what I believe to be only the most perfect of scenarios. This is the follow up where I’ll walk through in fairly high level detail a way that should be a lot more reliable as it’s based on the apply table(s) in Dynamics GP.

    Step 1 – Start with the AR Apply Detail view from Victoria Yudin

    Instead of re-inventing the wheel, I’m starting with a SQL view Victoria has on her website. It’s ready to “run” in SQL Server Management Studio if you don’t need any changes (additional fields, etc.). That being said, whenever getting a view off the internet, test first and ensure you know exactly what it is doing first!

    Please note, there are some caveats such as she’s only including functional currency amounts in the view. Things like that are very easy to change if you add a few more fields to the SQL view but that’s not the point of this post.

    One thing to keep in mind is once you start joining on the apply tables, it can get more complicated in a hurry with identifying exactly which fields you want to include and understanding what can happen if you have a 1:many relationship in the mix. Victoria mentions this in her comments on the first few lines too, mentioning that credit documents applied to more than one debit document will appear on multiple lines. If you’re testing a view like this, include scenarios like that to ensure you’re getting the dollar amount fields that make sense as it’s very easy to end up with duplication by misunderstanding the fields.

    Step 2 – Create a SmartList using the view

    Next, I used the out-of-the-box SmartList Designer (SLD) tool to create a new SmartList in Dynamics GP. If you own SmartList Builder from eOne, that would be the tool you would use instead. I’m not going to turn this into a “how to create a SmartList” post so here are the quick points that I followed to create mine (and specific to SmartList Designer):

    • Open SmartList, click on New to open SLD and give your new SmartList a name.
    • At the bottom of the Database View list of products, expand Views and you should see the view that was created in SQL
    • In my case I simply added it and executed the query to preview the results and that was it. (Other than setting the Series to Sales so it would appear in a meaningful place in the SmartList object hierarchy). The view has enough fields to get started at least and is joined to the RM Customer Master to include the customer name. If nothing else, start with it on its own and then add fields to the view if needed or via joining to other tables in SLD.
    • I added the new SmartList to a security task that was appropriate so users could “see” it.

    Step 3 – run the SmartList

    That’s it really, run the SmartList just created and view the data you’ve got. Now, back to the original point of this post: getting write-offs. What this view/SmartList shows is a list of credit documents (returns, credit memos and payments) and what they are applied to. From here, if I follow the same method as I did in my first post, I would search for Writeoff amount <> 0, which is displayed below. I’m still assuming that what I’m searching for are write-offs using the Write-off field (as opposed to random credit notes applied to invoices which are then hard to differentiate from “normal” credit notes!).

    The view contains any apply records from a credit-type of document so if that methodology doesn’t apply, you can instead search by document number or date range or whatever might help. One suggestion would be to amend the view to include the Transaction Description from the RM transaction tables if you need to filter based on what descriptions a user types in when entering a write-off, if you don’t use the Write-off field consistently.

    That’s it… the nice thing about this is with the view already built for you, creating this SmartList takes about 10 minutes end to end if you have the right permissions to create the SQL view and then create the SmartList etc. It’s going to be more reliable when filtering to certain date ranges, like you might for a list of write-offs for an auditor that should be within a specific fiscal period.

    For three-way match items, GP uses an account for Accrued Purchases. Expected costs for received goods go into Accrued Purchases. Once the goods are received, the accrued purchases amount is moved to Accounts Payable.

    The tool for reconciling received amounts to Accrued Purchases is Received Not Invoiced. With GP 2015 R2, the MS team also released a Historical Received Not Invoiced report and that can be big help when the reconciliation is not done right at month end.

    Either way, there are some issues with this process. The problem comes when the process doesn’t proceed as planned. For example, the invoice gets processed and paid via Accounts Payable instead of the three-way match process. Maybe someone closes the P.O. or a P.O. line before the process is complete. All of these make reconciling to the GL hard.

    However, there are some simple steps to keep this process running smoothly.

    1. Turn on the PO warning in GP that checks for Purchase Orders related to an invoice. If an invoice is found, the user should stop processing via AP and enter the invoice via the matching process. Prevention solves most of these issues.
    2. Be careful closing P.O.s. Validate where the P.O. is in the process before closing out incomplete P.O. and P.O. line items.
    3. Use the Historical Received Not Invoiced report if possible to pick a point in time and prevent report data from changing while cleaning up.
    4. I’ve some recommendations on clean up if you already have a mess. Much of this can be done in bulk, especially if the invoice went through Accounts Payable.

    For any cleanup, there are 3 considerations, the Received Not Invoiced Report, the GL, the AP Subledger. Without some careful thought, one of these won’t come out right and things won’t balance.

    Updates & Releases

    Microsoft Dynamics 365 Online Release

    The November 2018 Service Update for Dynamics 365 online version 9.1.0 is now available.

    Service Update 8 (9.1.0000.0829 or higher) resolved issues include:

    · When attempting to view records for quote products in advance find, no values appeared when only a base money field was present.

    · Optionset columns displayed backend integer values instead of text values.

    · The lookup filter was not functioning in on-premises environments.

    · The sequence number for products mismatched between Opportunities, Quote, and Order Lines.

    · When merging two contacts, the first name and last name fields were not being selected by default.

    Unified Interface Lookup Leverages Quick Find View

    In response to feedback on the differences in search behavior between the legacy web client interface and the Unified Interface, Microsoft made changes to the Unified Interface's search behavior, so it aligns with the behavior of the legacy web client interface. Before the change, the Unified Interface used the lookup views for both the display view (defines the columns shown in your returned search results) and the search view (defines the columns against which the search is made). With the change, the Unified Interface now uses quick find views for the search view. Customers can now leverage the added performance of indexing in quick find views when specifying the columns for the search results.

    If your organization currently uses the legacy web client interface, there is no change. For those upgrading to the Unified Interface, review this blog post for instructions on how to prepare for the change.

    Ein Aufzählungstyp, in der Programmierung auch als Enumeration bezeichnet, ist ein Schlüsselwort, mit dem ein Typ deklariert wird, der aus einer Gruppe benannter Konstanten besteht. Diese Erweiterung wird  unter dem Topic Extensible Enums geführt. In Business Central wurde dieses Schlüsselwort in der Programmiersprache AL erweitert.

    Um eine Aufzählung in AL zu deklarieren, müssen Sie eine ID und einen Namen angeben.

    Die Aufzählungsliste besteht aus Werten, und jeder Wert wird mit einer ID und einem Wert deklariert. Die Wert-ID ist der Wert in der Aufzählungsliste und muss eindeutig sein.

    Ein Praxis-Beispiel

    Das folgende Beispiel zeigt die Deklaration einer Enumeration und wie diese erweitert werden kann.



    • Die Konvertierung von und nach enum ist strenger als für Optionsfelder in C / SIDE.
    • Eine Aufzählung kann einer Aufzählung desselben Typs zugeordnet werden.
    • Um abwärtskompatibel zu sein, unterstützt Business Central vorerst die Konvertierung zu / von einer Option

    Bekannte Einschränkungen

    • Es gibt keine Laufzeitüberprüfung für die Kollision von IDs.
    • Durch das Deklarieren von C / SIDE-Enums mit derselben ID in mehreren Optionsfeldern wird die Symbolgenerierung unterbrochen.

    Extensible Enums – Dokumentation

    Auf folgender Webseite von Microsoft findet ihr die offizielle Dokumentation zu diesem Thema.

    Do you print and mail your ACA 1095-Cs to the IRS? Or do you file them electronically? Be aware: the requirements for who can print and mail forms to the IRS rather than filing electronically (e-filing) may be changing.

    Today’s e-file rule is: US employers may print and mail (rather than e-file) their 1094-C & 1095-Cs to the IRS if they have fewer than 250 1095-Cs.

    On June 18, 2018, the IRS released a revenue bulletin (2018-25) that may affect your ability to print and mail forms to the IRS rather than e-file. The bulletin documents a proposed rule change to the “Filing Requirements for Information Returns Required on Magnetic Media (Electronically).” The regulations currently allow employers to consider only a particular form when determining whether that form must be filed electronically – in the case of ACA requirements, that form is the 1095-C. According to this bulletin, however “The proposed regulations would require that all information returns, regardless of type, be taken into account to determine whether a person meets the 250-return threshold and, therefore, must file the information returns electronically.” Thus, an employer with fewer than 250 1095-Cs may have to begin filing electronically in the future.

    For a small employer that is filing forms manually today, this could provide a significant burden if they now have to electronically file “all information returns.” This includes (but is not limited to):

    • 1099-DIV
    • 1099-MISC
    • 1099-INT
    • W-2
    • 1095-C
    • 1095-B

    The IRS allowed for a public comment time frame that ended on July 31st, 2018. To date, the IRS has not provided a final ruling and per an IRS Payroll Industry call on October 4th, 2018, employers should “follow the existing rules” in this regard for now. The American Payroll Association IRS Issues Committee encouraged the IRS to delay any file ruling until the 2019 reporting year is over because many employers currently filing in paper form would be challenged to get systems in places to allow for electronic filing of these forms in time to meet the various filing deadlines.

    As a reminder, ACA filing requirements for 2018 forms are as follows:

    January 31, 2019
    Provide Form 1095-C to all ACA-defined, full-time employees

    February 28, 2019
    For paper filers: Mail transmittal, Form 1094-C and included 1095-Cs, to the IRS

    April 1, 2019
    For electronic filers: (Because March 31, 2019 is a Sunday), E-file Form 1094-C and included 1095-Cs with the IRS

    As always, you can rely on Integrity Data to keep you abreast of ACA and other payroll compliance changes that may affect your organization. Follow our hashtag #ACAfluent on social media for the latest updates. We will be monitoring this proposed rule and update this article as the regulations are finalized. Also, know that we have many options for ACA compliance that include the ability to electronically file your ACA information returns. Please reach out to for more information.

    Nicht vergessen in Visual Studio Code die neue Version der VS Code Extension einzubinden!


    Lokale Dynamics 365 Business Central-Lizenzen für kumulatives Update 1

    Wenn Sie lokale Implementierungen auf dieses Update aktualisieren, müssen Sie und Ihre Kunden eine neue Lizenz verwenden, die mehr Szenarien als die für die ursprüngliche Version im Oktober 2018 verwendete Konversation verwendet.

    Warum diese neue Lizenz?

    Im kumulativen Update 1 (CU 1) hat Microsoft neue Lizenzierungsszenarien aktiviert, sodass Business Central für Lizenzen mit benannten Benutzern optimiert ist und gleichzeitig gleichzeitige Benutzer unterstützt. Dies wurde in der RTM-Version, die am 1. Oktober 2018 verfügbar war, nicht vollständig unterstützt. Aus diesem Grund erfordert CU 1 eine neue Lizenz. Sie können neue Lizenzen abrufen, wenn Sie Kunden auf CU 1 aktualisieren.

    Die neuen Lizenzen sind für das kumulative Update 1 und spätere Versionen von Business Central erforderlich und sind nicht abwärtskompatibel mit früheren Versionen von Business Central.

    Was hat sich verändert?

    Mit CU 1 unterstützt Business Central die Produktlinien-IDs 49, 74, 75 und 76 für benannte Benutzer. Business Central unterstützt auch die Produktlinien-ID 50 für gleichzeitige Benutzer.

    Zu den neuen Lizenzen gehört außerdem der ID-Bereich von 70.000.000 bis 74.999.999. Weitere Informationen finden Sie im Dynamics 365 Business Central-Lizenzierungshandbuch.
