With the release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 and the Services industry solution for Dynamics AX, Microsoft has made some significant improvements in the usability of the timesheets module. The goal from an R&D standpoint was to make entering and managing timesheets both easier and faster for your employees, and to maximize the accuracy of the time records. In this blog we’ll highlight some of these new enhancements.
As with previous versions of Dynamics AX, there are multiple interfaces for entering time for your projects. Since the most widely adopted model is through the Enterprise Portal web browser interface, we’ll focus mostly on the enhancements in this interface. The Dynamics AX Enterprise Portal allows users to access self-service functions in Dynamics AX via the popular Microsoft SharePoint collaboration platform, which has quickly become the de facto standard for web portal platforms.
I am extremely happy that Microsoft has announced the release of their eagerly awaited Data Migration Tool for AX 2012.
With this a major missing piece in rolling out AX 2012 at customer sites has been filled :-). Now, as a consultant, I can confidently smile during customer discussions around Data Migration.
Time and again, I could hear curious queries on much spoken AX 2012 Role base security :) I had given answers to lot of people on various occasions. But, I feel that all this information should be collected in one place and that is what this post is about !! :)
Look out iTunes, here comes Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012! SAGlobal's Senior Consultant Joel Leichty, has recently authored and released several iBooks on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. These are the first Dynamics AX books that have been released for the iPad and made available on iTunes. In developing these iBooks, Joel used many of the rich media content features that can be incorporated into iBooks, making the books very easy to read and comprehend
SAGlobal has recently introduced a new feature into our ProjAX (now known as Projects+) extensions for the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Service Industries ERP solution called Qualification Tracking. ProjAX (now known as Projects+) is SAG’s family of vertical extensions for Microsoft Dynamics AX that we’ve developed to further extend the out-of-the-box functionality to meet the unique needs of several vertical markets that we pursue.
This particular feature is targeted at the Architecture & Engineering (A&E) market, and it allows these firms to track their qualifications and experience related to certain work that they might be bidding on. Many business development proposals that A&E firms generate are what are known as a Qualification-based Proposals. In essence, these organizations submit proposals that answer key questions around what qualifications they have to perform the work that is required.
