The product thumbnails within Dynamics AX are great, except for only one thing. The developers seem to have taken the thumbnail size to the extreme, and they are a little too small to see in detail. There isn’t a simple flag in the system that allows you to resize the image to make it more readable, but if you want to live life on the edge, there is a tiny coding change that you can do that will solve the problem.

Questionnaires are a great way to gather information, and Dynamics AX 2012 has a great feature that allows you to create your own questionnaire formats for employees, vendors, and customers that can either be filled out through the self service applications, or delivered by an agent such as a CSR in conjunction with call lists, or to standardize HR questionnaires.
This is a great way to implement the Voight-Kampff Empathy Test.

Dynamics AX is truly a multi-lingual system, and switching the language that the client uses is just a matter of changing the an option.

There are usually a lot of different configuration choices that you can make choose from when you are performing updates and postings within the Dynamics AX forms.

This is definitely a case of set it and forget it. Read More
You probably know already that you can create your own menu items and menus within Dynamics AX, but in addition to being able to update the navigation menus for the area pages, you can also update the Tools menu as well to add any utilities and forms that you may want users to access. This way the users don’t have to have access to AOT in order to open up those common hidden utilities.
If you really want to be clever, you can even add Tetris. Read More
Lifecycle Services is the backbone to your Dynamics AX implementation since it allows you to model all of your business processes, and also track any changes that you may be making as you are getting up and running. It also has an option to attach documents to your projects and business process models. But the documents are stored within Lifecycle Services as links, and not as uploaded documents – probably because Microsoft doesn’t want you filling up LCS with attachments. That’s not a problem though because if you use OneDrive as your document filing system, then you can easily link them into your LCS projects and everyone has access to them without a problem.
Gone are the days of transporting documents around in your head… Read More
