A Step-by-Step Guide

How do I e-mail ACH remittances to my vendors? What evidence can I show to my vendor that payment has been made via ACH (without faxing)? These types of questions are a recurring theme when I visit some of my Microsoft Dynamics GP ACH clients so I decided to put together simple screen shots to address common questions and concerns on how to e-mail ACH remittances.

This documentation shows how to e-mail the ACH remittance from Dynamics GP Accounts Payable to vendors. This process requires Microsoft Outlook availability as the preferred email solution.

Step 1. Configure GP Email Settings:

Select the Microsoft Dynamics GP menu>Tools>Setup>Company>E-mail Settings

Dynamics GP email settings

This will open up the Company E-mail Setup window, where you choose company-wide options to use when sending email documents from Dynamics GP. You also have the option to select which Dynamics GP Series you require for the e-mail.

In this window, check the appropriate File Format for the document to be sent to the vendor. I have selected all formats in this example and have clicked the Purchasing Series to lead me to Purchasing E-mail Setup.

In Purchasing E-mail setup below, make sure Vendor Remittance is checked and choose REMITTANCE as your message ID.

Have Replies Sent to: Provide the e-mail address where you want to receive any vendor questions or replies.

Step 2. E-mail Message Setup:

Any message you would like to include in the ACH remittance would be defined in the E-mail Message Setup window.

Select the Microsoft Dynamics GP menu>Tools>Setup>Company>E-mail Message Setup

Navigate to GP company settings

In the Message Setup Screen below, make the appropriate selections as shown below:

Message ID: Give the Message a name. I used REMITTANCE in my example

Series: Purchasing

Doc Type: Vendor Remittance

Subject: In the subject you can click the Field drop down, make a selection of your choice and click the Insert button.  I selected Check Total in my example.

In the body you can write a brief message you deem necessary to the vendor

Click save.

For each vendor you want to send an e-mail to, you have to configure the vendor’s e-mail.
