Revenue/Expense Codes in Job Costing

A question came up in my 'Using Job Costing as Project Accounting Lite' presentation at GPUG Summit regarding how to determine what bucket in Job Costing a particular Revenue or Expense transaction appears.  Here's the answer:

Manufacturing>>Job Costing>>Transaction List
1.  Enter your new or existing Job Transaction List
2.  Select the Trx Source
3.  Select the Transactions that you want to assign to specific Revenue/Expense Codes
4.  Choose whether to have the transaction Auto Applied to the job when the transaction is selected for the job.
If you need more Revenue/Expense Codes, set these up in Manufacturing>>Job Costing>>Rev/Exp Codes.
Using these setups, you can determine which revenue or expense buckets in the Job Maintenance window and Job Costing reports your transactions are coded to.
Thanks Debbie Clark at Entertainment One Television in Ontario, CA for the question!

Can 3rd Party Product Tables be added to Business Alerts?

This question came out of my '13 MORE Classic Underused Features in GP' at GPUG Summit today.  I wasn't sure of the answer so I tested it this evening and sure enough, ISV product tables can be added to the Business Alerts available tables.

Administration>>Utilities>>Business Alerts
Select the Dictionary, Series and the tables you want to add to Business Alerts, insert them in the Selected Tables window and click Process.  These tables will now be available for use in the Business Alerts Wizard.
Thanks to my 13 MORE audience for the great questions today!
