      • lets you restart processing for multiple invoices where the reason for the failure can be resolved by a single fix for those invoices
  • New Feature: Marked Transaction Detail Blocked for Settlement
    • Business Value: administrators can view transactions that are blocked for settlement, and quickly identify the reason they’re blocked
    • Details: lets administrators see items that are blocked for settlement and quickly identify why
  • New Feature: Restrict Ability to Edit Accounting Distribution on Vendor Invoices
    • Business Value: helps you maintain the accuracy of accounting information on vendor invoices by locking in values for certain accounts, such as the fund or department account, while allowing the main account to be changed
    • Details: allows you to set restrictions on which financial account number dimensions can be edited on vendor invoices that were created from a purchase order

Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management obtains a unified view of inventory, warehouse, manufacturing, service, and logistics with predictive analytics.
