Today I will show you how to send a Dunning Letter to your customers with past-due balances. A Dunning Letter is simply a notification sent to a customer stating that the customer is overdue and is paying an account receivable. Microsoft GP gives you the ability to send first, second and final notices to one or several of your customers.

Collection is the category that will contain the Dunning Letter. Additionally, you can send various types of letters to your customers, vendors, employees and applicants. After clicking Next, you prepare the details of the Dunning Letter. First choose the customer or customers you want to send it to. You can select all customers or multiple customers in a range of customer IDs or names or in a Smartlist. I'll choose one customer for simplicity and I'll choose Adam Park.

 

Next you can select which balanced budgets you want to include in the letter. I'll select everything over ninety days but next. Then you can choose whether it is a first, second, or final notice. The language will get more firm and direct from first to final. Confirm everything is correct and then hit next.

 

Lastly include the information you want to include in the signature at the bottom. I have my name and my title. When you are done click finish and as you can see the letter is then created in Microsoft Word. GP provides excellent templates. You also have the ability to edit them. If you go back to the letter writing assistant, click Next. You can choose to customize a letter by adding the letter or changing the existing one. I'll edit an existing letter and choose, I had the collection category selected and GP's first notice and then click Next. Microsoft Word will open the template and from here you can get pretty much every aspect of the letter when you are done. Save a letter in the same folder as your other Dynamics GP templates
