A client just went live on Dynamics AX this month, so YAY to them!
Believe it or not, go-live is not always just pressing a button and sitting back. A few things came up, and I’ll blog them if I think they might be useful. This is the first of these.
The client wanted AX to automatically run a specific form when they started up, rather than having the users navigate (to the clock in/clock out screen). As always, I stand on the shoulders of giants, and borrowed heavily from the internet, including Palle Agermark’s blog , TechNet, and the X++ code itself.
We did it in a two-step process. Number one was to create an xml file to specify what should be run:
<?xml version=”1.0″ ?>
<AxaptaAutoRun logFile=”C:\temp\AxOpenTimeClock.log” logToScreen=”false”
<Run type=”displayMenuItem” name=”JmgRegistrationClockInOut”/>
Number two was to set this xml file as an autorun in the .axc configuration file, using “Command to run at application startup” and Autorun_File:
Now when I log into AX using that configuration file, we see the clock in/out screen!
