Add Media To Questionnaires To Create Visual Training Exercises and Certifications

Questionnaires are a great way within Dynamics AX to gather information, but you are not just limited to using text in them.  There is an option that also allows you to associate media files with individual questions that are showed in conjunction with the questions.

This allows you to create visual training and testing Questionnaires that you can assign to employees to complete if you have training and certification requirements.

How To Do It…

Select the Questions menu item from within the Design subfolder of the Questionnaires folder in the Common group of the Home area page.

When the Questions maintenance form is displayed, click on the New button in the menu bar to create a new question.

Set the Input Type to Checkbox, and give your question some Instructions and also the Text prompt.  Then click on the Media button in the menu bar.
