Dynamics GP--Applying a Sales Return to an Invoice

John Ellis

Why is it that GP will not allow you to apply a Sales Order Processing return to an invoice, without going into the Apply Sales Documents window to do so?

Does anyone know if this behavior will change, in a future release?

"Why" is a difficult question to answer, as developers will rarely explain why they decided NOT to code a particular piece of functionality, even if there is great documentation available.

Maybe they didn't think of it. Maybe it was not requested or not in the spec originally. Maybe they actually thought about it, but because SOP is a separate module from Receivables Management they wanted the Return to first be posted in Receivables Management before it's allowed to be applied to Invoices.

I personally have not seen any mention of this functionality being added in a future release. I've also not seen too many requests for this, so I am not sure how likely this is without a suggestion and a lot of votes.
