Dynamics AX 2012 Companion Guide – Configuring Financial Approvals & Workflows Within Dynamics AX 2012 Is Available

Posted by Author, Curator, Visually Impared Squirrel Literacy Advocate & Dynamics AX Technical Solution Professional (TSP) at Microsoft on

A couple of weeks ago I did a webinar for MS Dynamics World titled “Microsoft Dynamics AX workflows for financial automation: Improving process efficiency with ease” which you can view if you like by following this link:

While I was preparing for the webcast, I created a storyboard of everything that I was going to show, which I thought may be a great reference for everyone, so I tidied it up and the complete set of examples that I worked through during the webinar, plus the examples that I didn’t manage to get to in the time I had are now available as a Companion Guide for Dynamics AX. Within the 401 pages I cover:

Just a reminder, my Dynamics AX 2012 Barebones Configuration Guides series aims to show how easy it is ton configure Dynamics AX 2012 from a blank instance, and is going to have the following books in the series, each of which builds on top of the previous books in the series:

  1. Initial Data Load
  2. Configuring the Organization
  3. Configuring Human Resources
