Microsoft Dynamics NAV can suggest various payments to vendors, such as payments that will be due soon or payments where a discount is available. The payment suggestion can take into consideration an amount that you specify as available funds for payment and eligibility for payment discounts.

You must have already prioritized your vendors. For more information, see How to: Prioritize Vendors.

To suggest vendor payments

  1. In the Search box, enter Payment Journal, and then choose the related link.

  2. On the Navigate tab, in the Payments group, choose Suggest Vendor Payments.

  3. On the Options FastTab, fill in the fields. For more information, see Suggest Vendor Payments.

    In the Calculate Posting Date from Applies-to-Doc. Due Date field, you can select how posting dates are inserted on the journal lines. For more information, see How to: Insert Due Date as Posting Date on Payment Journal Lines.

  4. On the Vendor FastTab, you can set filters to select vendors by number and/or payment method.

  5. Choose the OK button to start the batch job.

When the batch job is finished, the vendor entries that have been selected for payment are listed in the payment journal.

If you want to take advantage of payment discounts and have entered an available amount, the amount will be used for prioritized overdue vendor entries first in order of priority, and then for overdue vendor entries that are not prioritized, and finally for open vendor entries that qualify for payment discounts in order of vendor number.
