Feature Overview Video Series #5: Copy Journal Function

Using the Copy Journal Function

In this feature overview video series by Microsoft, we highlight new capabilities included in the latest update to Dynamics 365 Business Central. This feature video will elaborate more on the use of the copy journal function on Posted General Journals. The video will also show how you can control the date for reversing entries in Recurring General Journals.

When working with large journals, it is important to have an easy way to correct mistakes. The copy journals function helps your accountant be more productive when correcting mistakes.

Also, when posting accruals at the end of the period, it is important to be able to have full control over reversal entries without much hassle. The reversal date calculation helps your accountants be more in control when handling accruals in recurring general journals.

Feature Details

You can choose to Copy to Posted Jnl. Lines in General Journal Templates to enable copying of journals to Posted General Journals. You can also enable or disable Copy to Posted Jnl. Lines on a specific General Journal Batch that belongs to General Journal Templates where Copy to Posted Jnl. Lines was enabled.

On the Posted General Journals page, you can now use the Copy Selected Lines to Journal function to create a copy of a general journal line. You can also use it on a batch with opposite signs (a reversing journal), different posting date or document number. The Copy G/L Register to Journal function will copy all journal lines that belong to selected G/L Register to target General Journal.

On Recurring General Journals, in the Reverse Date Calculation column, you can now enter the date formula that will be used to calculate the date with which reversal entries will be posted where Reversal Recurring Methods are used. Please note that Reverse Date Calculation can be added to Recurring General Journals through page personalization.
