Inventory Lookup screen and Store locator group assignment in AX 2012 R3 POS

Hi Guys, this blog is related to the most simple form in POS. Untill now I was under impression that the Inventory lookup just utilize the Real time service to show the Inventory for the Retail stores, but I discovered a new feature in AX 2012 R3 to restrict the number of stores in the Inventory lookup screen.

Configure & Troubleshoot “Modes of delivery” on shipping and delivery screen on AX 2012 R3 POS

Hi Guys, this blog is meant for mode of delivery control on the Retail channel. As in previous versions of AX 2012 RTM, where all the modes of delivery were used to get populated on the shipping and delivery screen, which has been improved now to have a control over modes of delivery on the basis of products, country/state and Retail channel combination. This is a everyday requirement for all the Retail Industries to ship the products out to the customers out from the Retail channels. Also to identify which type of products and from which country are being shipped by what mode to the customer. This makes it easy for the salesperson to select the modes that are being used by that particular store and should not end up with wrong selection of mode of delivery.

After creating the modes of delivery under Retail >> Setup >> Distribution >> Modes of delivery, its time to setup the Retail channel, products and Address. Lets create a new mode of delivery 88 – Non standard and proceed with the setup.
