BBCG.03.D365.2: Configuring the General Ledger within Dynamics 365 Finance (Second Edition)

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.

The General Ledger is the backbone of Dynamics 365 and is usually the first functional module that anyone will want to set up within the system since all of the other modules relay heavily on it throughout the setup process.

In these guides we will step through the basics of setting up our initial General Ledger, and also through the additional configuration that we can do for configuring Journals, Allocations, Business Units and much more so that we have a solid foundation for all of the other modules.
