What’s new

Description

Data is available to help you reduce your carbon footprint.

The data that the Environment dashboard provides can show your organization’s carbon footprint. By using the new features that are included in the dashboard, your company can formulate ways to reduce its carbon footprint.

Enter substance flow information in Enterprise Portal for Microsoft Dynamics AX.

You can now enter substance flow information in Enterprise Portal. This change improves access to the information across your organization, and therefore helps you better understand and evaluate your organization’s carbon footprint and discover ways to reduce that footprint.

Resource and waste stream management

The Environmental sustainability dashboard can help you and your organization monitor, track, and report your environmental impact. Your company can also report on the acquisition and emission of these substances through reporting frameworks such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG).

For more information, see About Environmental sustainability.

Feature updates have been made to the Environmental sustainability dashboard.

Updates to the Environment area offer a better user experience and more functionality, and allow for a better environmental management system.

Graphical views of substance flow and key sets of data

By using the process flow map, you can view substance flows and other data in graphical form.

For more information, see View a process flow map.

Import and Mapping Wizard for the Compliance Center

You can use the Import and Mapping Wizard to import your internal controls into the Compliance Center from an existing, preformatted control matrix spreadsheet that your company uses.

For more information, see Import internal controls to the Compliance site.

Default control library for the Compliance site

A workbook that contains more than 120 common compliance controls is now available on the Compliance site in Enterprise Portal. You can refer to this library when you manually enter controls on the Compliance site. You can also use the library as the source file to import controls into the Compliance site.

For more information, see About compliance resources.

Links to reports that require input parameters have been removed from the Compliance site.

The following links have been removed from the Compliance site:

  • Alert tracking

  • Alert setup

  • Database log setup

  • Object permissions

  • User permissions

  • Workflow tracking

  • Workflow instance by status

Internal Controls page usability enhancements

Several usability enhancements have been added to the Internal Controls page in Enterprise Portal. For example, preview information for each document that is selected is displayed in FactBoxes. You can change the page view to highlight documents that meet specific criteria, such as documents that are assigned only to you or documents that have not been started. An icon that is displayed next to each document helps you identify the template that was used to create that document. Additionally, the new shortcut menu makes it easier to add, modify, and delete documents in the Internal Controls tree view.

For more information, see Manage internal controls.

Action Pane on Compliance site pages

The Internal controls and Database log pages on the Compliance site have been updated to use standard Microsoft Dynamics AX Action Panes.

For more information, see Manage internal controls and About database logs.

Automatically review business documents for policy violations.

You can now automatically review business documents for policy violations that trigger a review or audit. Therefore, you can more efficiently manage adherence to policy and prevent fraud.

For more information, see About compliance.
