Introduction:In this blog, I will be attempting to highlight on Suggest Vendor Payment functionality in Payment Journals.
Pre-requisites:Microsoft Dynamics Business Central
Microsoft Dynamics NAV
Demonstration:Last Payment Date: This date is the latest date which can be appeared on Vendor Ledger Entries for making the Payment. Entries that have Due Date or Discount Date before the Last Payment Date will be included in Suggest functionality.
|Last Payment Date|
Find Payment Discounts: Find all the Payments which will have discounts. If this field is TRUE then Suggest Vendor Payment functionality will include Payments with Discounts as well as Payments without Discounts.
|Find Payment Discounts|
|Use Vendor Priority|
|Priority field in Payment Section in Vendor Card|
By default, the priority is set to 0.
If Vendor priority is not set which means that the Vendor Payments are to be processed in Alphabetically FCFS fashion.
Available Amount: If the Available Amount is filled in which means that the maximum amount for the payments will be considered.
Skip Exported Payments: This boolean is used to skip those payments for which the Payment EFT file has been exported. This is generally used where the Payments are not supposed to be posted but the new payments are to be included in the list.
|Skip Exported Payments|
Check Other Journal Batches: This boolean field is used to skip all those payments which have already been included in the different General Journal Batches. This will avoid including duplicate payments.
|Check Other Journal Batches|
Summarize Per Vendor: This will make a single Payment per Vendor which will be applied to multiple documents. Also, this boolean will create separate payment entries for payments with different currencies. This feature cannot be used in conjunction with 'Calculate Posting Date from Applied Entries'
|Summarize per Vendor|
|Calculate Posting Date from Application|
Starting Document No.: Starting No. Series for the Payment Journal. This value will be set to Next No. after current Payment Journal Lines have been created in Payment Journal. This field is generally auto-filled.
|Starting Document No.|
New Doc No. per Line: This is used to create a separate Document No. for a separate entry line. When this is set to false, automatically a single Document No. is used for multiple entries of a single Vendor.
|New Doc. No. per Line|
|Bal. Account Type|
Bank Account No. Used to generate only payments from a specific Bank Account.
Vendor Filters: Vendor Filters are basically used to get only those payments related to a particular Vendor.
Thus, Suggest Vendor Payments can be a pretty good tool to deal with Payments where you don't have to manually go and reconcile for the Vendor Purchase Invoices. There are a lot of variants to get the pending Payments with a lot of filters in Suggested Vendor Payments.
