Journal entry types - The new “type” field in the journal entry screen allows users to categorize the journal entry as either “standard,” “amortization,” or “adjustment.” Imported journal entries can have a type of “beginning balance,” making it easy for R365 implementation coaches to identify beginning balance entries and minimize reconciliation time, or “payroll” to true up labor accrual entries. All types will be displayed in the new “types” column in the journal entries grid. See related documentation
Less restrictions on GL accounts/types in CFR - Accounting admins now have more flexibility when making changes to GL accounts that are used in Custom Financial Reports.

Display only “home store” employees in scheduler - Managers can now see a cleaner list of employees when scheduling by clicking the “home store only” checkbox in the employee view menu.

Exclude total hours from printed schedule - Managers can now exclude the daily total hours for scheduled employees before printing the schedule. This gives them more flexibility to make day-of labor hour decisions without setting employee expectations of how many hours they will work. See related documentation
