Master record triggers in Dynamics GP allow you to automatically replicate masterfile records for general ledger accounts, vendors, and customers to other company databases in your system. This functionality is part of the Professional Service Tools Library.
You have a choice of what types of records you want to replicate, and to which companies you want to replicate. You select the company database that will act as the master database; in that changes made in the master database will be replicated to the others specified.
Here’s the simple window from which you control this function:
Once engaged, this function will replicate existing records if you happen to update them, e.g. if you have an existing vendor record and you change the address, the whole record will be replicated in the other company databases.
This is a warning from the Microsoft documentation:
If you are using Integration Manager to import account, customer, or vendor master records to the main company database and the integration fails for any reason, any records imported to the main company database will be deleted (rolled back). However, if you have enabled master record triggers, the records will be replicated to company databases that you specify in the Replicate To DB field, and will not be rolled back. You must delete such replicated records manually.
Here’s a quick video showing how it works:
