Recalculates the Release Date whenever the Required Date is changed. It sets the Release Date to:
- First: Required Date minus Item-Vendor Planning Lead Time (vPLT), if vPLT is greater than zero. vPLT is on Item Vendors Maintenance.
- Second: Required Date minus Item-Site Purchasing Lead Time (sPLT), if vPLT is zero and sPLT is greater than zero. sPLT is on Item Resource Planning Maintenance.
- Last: Release Date is set to Required Date.
Purchasing Setup (Tools >> Setup >> Purchasing >> Purchase Order Processing) has a setup option to “Calculate Line Item’s Release by Date Based on Vendor Lead Time”, however this only happens when the line is first entered. The “Calculate Release Date” Tweak ensures the date is recalculated if the Required Date is changed.
Navigation: Tools >> Setup >> Company >> Setup GP PowerPack
Mark the box next to TWK-POP: Calculate Release Date, then click DONE.
The feature will be enabled for the current user. Other users must restart their Dynamics GP client to enable this feature.
