BBCG.03.02.D365.2.PDF: Configuring the General Ledger within Dynamics 365 Finance (Second Edition)- Module 2: Configuring the General Ledger Journals (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 huge 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 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 perfectly.

Once you have a Ledger defined for your Legal Entity, then the next thing that you will probably want to do is to start populating it with postings.

Within Dynamics 365 Finance, all postings that are made to the General Ledger through Journals, and the journals are controlled through types called Journal Names.  You can configure as many of these as you like. As we move through all the different modules within Dynamics 365 Finance, you will notice that the Journal Names are a very important piece of the system. You will be configuring a lot of these to do pretty much everything from Invoicing to Production posts.

In this module, we will work through creating a new Journal Name within Dynamics 365 Finance and then show you how to start using this to post directly to the ledger.
