This blog assists those who are struggling to set up some aspect of printing in D365 for Operations due to the limited documentation in circulation.
We had 2 scenarios at our customer site:
– Barcode printing.
– FollowMe printing.
Barcode printing is not meant to be complex, but when printing to screen or printer, it did not work. The reason was that...
LCS is the place for getting all the information from Microsoft related to your Dynamics 365 for Operations projects. This Web portal also allows you to get your MS fixes to your environment and knows which Knowledge Base (KB) articles have been applied.
In the next image, for instance, we can see that there are 167 fixes applicable. So, let’s start cherry picking.
As we all know Dynamics 365 has technically speaking 3 patch groups. We know the x++ updates and the binary updates. We have seen those in older version of Dynamics 365. The third group is called platform updates.
Deploying packages is a time-consuming thing. MS has improved the speed, but we partner can also help. This helping is by merging the packages. Good merged combinations are Binary updates and x++ updates, but your own code can also be combined with your customizations on your Retail (SDK) part.
Till now I was not able to merge ISV packages, so those must be deployed separately. However, there...
LCS is your friend in Dynamics 365 as long it is up-to-date. And I have seen it is not always the case. So I will share some tricks to force it.
There are some things you should know LCS is only updating 1 time a day and that is 10 o clock in the evening. But when you look in LCS you see it is not updated for a couple of days. So what’s next?
We all must use LCS when working with Dynamics 365 these days, sometimes it feels good and sometimes it is frustrating.
The next real live image of LCS shows how I feel about the experience.
We are speeding up but at the same time we have to wait.
The pitfalls one might encounter are the following:
In this post, I will explain a little bit more about the translations a customer can make use of on the products and attributes in the system. From a user point of view, it is very simple. There is a translation button available that one can click and then add the required translations. From a technical point of view though, it is less simple due to the translations being located in different...
Last year I was creating an interface for products and their attributes. The funny thing was that the attributes did not appear in the interface, but on opening the form, all the attributes were there. So one begins to think what is going on! Where are my missing attributes?
As we all know, communication these days is still changing. We might think that the whole world is Microsoft and .Net. Well last month I have seen again that this is not the case. We had a customer who had a website running on Linux and programmed in Java, which we had to integrate with AX. This meant that WCF inbound messages could have been a solution, since they already had XSD available on...
Clean model store upgrade to CU 10
We had a request from one of our customers running AX 2012 R3 to upgrade to CU10. There were already a few Knowledge Base articles (more than 50) installed in their current system. So what we did is to hook in on MS Dynamics Lifecycle Services and select all KBs that form part of CU10. This resulted in over 4500 KB models in the model store. This became more...
