Microsoft just released cumulative update 11 for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3. The cumulative update adds new benefits to Dynamics AX in their time saving abilities, as well as better functionality for mobile devices, and financial performance improvements. One of the most compelling reasons to download the AX 2012 R3 CU 11 upgrade includes its compatibility with Office 2016.
We have highlighted some of the most important fixes and enhancements that pertain to financial management, retail, and warehouse and transportation management below.
Financial Management Functionality Upgrades:
Some of the financial management changes make working in a multi-company accounting department easier, this includes:
- The newest functionality lets you view and update all legal entities
that use the same fiscal calendars in one view. You no longer have to
switch companies multiple times.
- A field for Journal legal entity has been added to the
LedgerJournalTable table so you can now create a daily journal from
any company, for any company. All without changing the company that
you are working in.
Retail Functionality Upgrades:
The retail function revisions include time saving, and money saving functionality, as well as the ability to provide better customer service, made up of:
- Improved postal code address validation
- Channel price priority
- Loyalty cards can be seen at call centers and can be tied into quotes and orders.
Warehouse and Transportation Management Functionality Upgrades:
A majority of the modifications make mobile device data entry more intuitive, like:
- There is a new mobile device menu item for registering material
- You can now report items as finished by using End job on the hand-held
devices. When you report a production order as finished by using the
End job option, the production order status is updated to Reported
as finished. This status indicates that no more finished goods will be
reported, and no more time and material will be consumed by the
order. Therefore, any inventory transactions that have remaining
quantities for both materials and finished goods will be cleaned up.
- There is a new mobile device menu item for reporting as finished by
- A new option in the TMS (transporation management system) parameters form lets you automatically
create a master BOL when there is more than one shipment on a load.
One important element to note is that Master Data Management (MDM) is not supported with the SQL Server 2016. See the full white paper on What’s new in CU 11 for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3.
