Have you ever wanted to auto reverse posted General Journals in Dynamics 365 Finance? You now have the ability to reverse a large or small General Journal batch that is posted in D365 Finance, without exporting it to Excel, reversing the Debit and Credit columns, and then using Excel add-in to publish it back into D365.
