Inventory Posting Profiles Done Right

If you’ve ever tried to setup Dynamics AX posting profiles with the Contoso demo company as your guide, I’m sorry. They are not setup like a real company would configure AX.

In AX 2012 Trade, sample posting profiles are provided along with a “What’s This?” description of the more critical fields. Below are excerpts from the book to get you started on the right path.

Bringing back “What’s this?”

Back in the day with Axapta (AX) 2.5 and 3.0 there was a “What’s this?” option as part of the right-click contextual menu. It would bring up the help text for the field you were in. Unfortunately, this feature did not survive to see AX 4 or later versions.

When I started my first book, Dynamics AX 2012 Core Financials, I wanted to use the “What’s this?” concept to give more context to important fields. This provides an additional level of insight into the process.
