While many small and mid-size organizations are able to get the basic accounting functionality they need out of an entry accounting system like QuickBooks, SMBs can greatly improve and streamline their human resources and payroll process with the advanced HR functionality inside Microsoft Dynamics GP. Moreover, Microsoft will release a new version of GP, Dynamics GP 2015, later this year. Dynamics GP 2015 human resource enhancements and payroll improvements make processes easier than ever.

Here are a few of the Dynamics GP 2015 human resources enhancements
HR P pending approval navigation lists In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 gives approvers a single destination to view and approve employee self-service changes. This is a one-stop-shop for managers to see all of their assigned tasks including Payroll Timecards, Employee Profile, Employee Skills, Payroll W4, and Payroll Direct Deposit.
The HRP workflow pending approval navigation List allows you to approve and complete multiple tasks by checking the box and selecting the action to complete. The preview pane displays task details and there is a Go To option to view the assigned task.
Employee W4 Maintenance
With Employee W4, the user can see their current W4 settings, view historical W4’s, make changes, and submit the changes to workflow. From the Employee Time Management home page, the user can choose update my W4.
In the Employee Withholding Certificate window the employee can manage their information. When the changes are submitted they will be routed automatically for management approval prior to updating the employee’s record.
Employee Direct Deposit Window
Another option for Employee Self Service in Microsoft Dynamics GP2015 is Employee Direct Deposit. The employee direct deposit window allows an employee to view and edit their direct deposit information.
They can start or stop direct deposit, add or remove accounts and edit the direct deposit distribution. Then the direct deposit changes can be routed to the proper management personnel for verification before updating the employee’s data.
Employee Self Service Paystubs
In Microsoft Dynamics GP2015 employees can now view or print their own paystubs. With employee self-service paystubs, the user can see their pay stubs and then can view the detail or print them to a printer. This saves paper and improves employee satisfaction by given them the keys to their personal financial information.
Navigation on the Employee Time Management home page part opens the Paystubs navigation list. The employee can select one or more paystub and print them all at the same time.
