Changing Fiscal Period Names in Dynamics GP

It will soon be time to set up new fiscal periods for the upcoming new year.  In the Fiscal Periods Setup Window, Microsoft Dynamics GP defaults the period names to Period 1, Period 2, Period 3 etc. Instead of doing an internal translation that Period 1 = January why not name it that way in the first place?

Did you know that you can change the period names?  Simply click in the period and type in the desired name.

The new period names will display in the Financial Summary Inquiry window.  This is particularly nice if you are on a fiscal year when Period 1 does not equal January.  The proper month will be displayed instead of having to do a mental conversion.
