When the “Add To Batch” button is clicked on Select Payables Checks, the process of building the check batch can run for several minutes during which time there is no indication on the window that anything is happening. The only indication that the process has completed is when the Batch Total updates. If nothing needs to be paid, the Batch Total remains zero, and it can be difficult to know when the process has completed.
The Select Checks Status Message Tweak puts a status message into the Title Bar of the window while the check batch is being built.
Navigation: Tools >> Setup >> Company >> Setup GP PowerPack
Mark the box next to TWK-PM: Select Checks Status Message.
This Tweak requires additional set up. Double-click on “Select Checks Defaults*” to open the Setup window.
The Tweak will be enabled for the current user. Other users must restart their Dynamics GP client to enable this Tweak.
Using Select Checks Status Message
Create a new Check Batch ID in the Payables Batch Entry window, then click “Add to Batch”. The Title Bar will change to display “<< Building Batch >>” while the process is running.
