BBCG.03.01.D365.2.PDF: Configuring the General Ledger within Dynamics 365 Finance (Second Edition)- Module 1: Configuring the General Ledger Controls (Digital)

  • 1999


The Waterdeep Trading Company is the purveyor of all the finest adventuring supplies to travelers, rogues, wizards, and clerics in all Faerûn, and are headquartered in the great city of Waterdeep on the Sword Coast.

Recently they have been experiencing a massive upswing in the traffic through their store and have realized that the old quill and scroll-based financial system is not going to scale anymore. Their manual supply chain management processes that they are using will not handle their forecasted future demand.

As a result, they have taken the step to modernize their finance and supply chain systems and implement Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Supply Chain Management to manage all their legal (and not so legal) entities. The following is a journal of how they set up their system and how they tweaked the system to make it work correctly.

Before we can start posting to the General Ledger, there is a little bit of housekeeping that we need to do to set up all the codes and controls.  We need to configure our accounts that we will want to use within the ledger, set up our Chart of accounts, and configure some of the defaults for posting to the ledger.

In this module, we will step you through the General Ledger's initial configuration to start using it.
