    2. In the To and Cc fields, specify who receives the email message by entering email addresses or tokens (if supported by the version of Microsoft Dynamics AX that you’re using).

      If you’re using cumulative update 7 for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 or later, you can email reports to specific people by using tokens. When you use this feature, you don’t have to enter the email addresses of all recipients. Instead, you just enter a token. The token instructs Microsoft Dynamics AX to retrieve the appropriate email addresses from worker, customer, or vendor records.

      To enter tokens, complete the following steps:

      1. Click the Edit button that is next to the To or Cc field. The Assign email addresses form is displayed.

      2. To email the report to workers in your organization who have a specific job title, select the job title from the Worker title list.

        For example, suppose that you want to email this report to all workers who have the job title of Marketing Manager. In this case, you would select Marketing Manager from the Worker title list. Or, you would enter the following token in the To and Cc fields: @Marketing Manager@

      3. Click OK.

    3. In the Subject field, enter the subject of the email message.

    4. In the File format field, select the format of the file that the report is saved to. This file is attached to the email message that is sent.
