I just wanted to pass on a quick note to an upgrade that I just made to the Dynamics AX Companions website over the past couple of days that all of you eBook subscribers may be interested in.

When I first set up the website I split the subscriptions into two separate roles – Premium, which allows you to download all of the individual pieces of content that I have been posting, and then the eBook subscription, which was aimed at giving you all quick access to all of the published books within the eBookshelf area of the site. I had expected that most of you would opt for the monthly premium subscription since it was a lot more economical (which you all did), but did not expect as big of a response to the eBook subscription as I got.

After thinking this though a little I realized that it is a little unfair to make the eBook subscribers also have to sign up for the Premium content since they have already shown such great support to the site, so I have updated the security profiles on the site.

From now on, if you are an eBook subscriber, or sign up for an eBook subscription, then you also get access to all of the Premium content as well at no additional cost.

It’s just my way of saying thanks for the support.

PS. I think that I have caught all of the areas that I need to update the security to allow this to work, but if you are an eBook subscriber, and can’t access something then drop me a note and I will fix it right away.


After a couple of months of work and also being sidetracked by publishing out a couple of other books I have finally completed book #5 in the Bare Bones Configuration Guide series that lays the foundation for Configuring Accounts Receivable Within Dynamics AX 2012.

Here is a summary of the book

The Accounts Receivable area is one of the three foundation financial modules within Dynamics AX that you will want to set up. It not only allows you to manage all of your customer information, post your invoices, and receive in your cash payments, but also allows you to manage your collections, track deductions, and much more.

It’s not hard to configure either and this book is designed to give you step by step instructions to show you how to configure the receivables area, and also how some of the basic transactions work to get you up and running and working with your customers.

Chapters that are included in this book include:

  • Configuring Accounts Receivable Controls
  • Configuring Customer Accounts
  • Configuring Invoicing
  • Configuring Collection Management
  • Configuring Cash Receipts
  • Configuring Deduction Management

The Tips & Tricks series has just made a major step this week and was translated into it’s first language other than English. Thanks to Kurt Mekelburg who did all of the hard work in the translation and also re-imaging all of the screen shots, all 50 of the first volume are now available in German.

If German is your native language then this is something that you must have, and here is the link to it on Amazon:

Kurt and I will be working together to get more books available in German so watch out for more in the future.
