This is preliminary documentation and is subject to change.

Click Project management and accounting > Setup > Validation > Worker/category validation groups.

Use this form to create groups that combine workers and categories for validation.

The validation setup:

  • Controls access limitations. The groups that you set up in this form define which categories are available for different workers.

  • Must be enabled or disabled for the entire company through the validation parameter setup in the Project management and accounting parameters form.

  • Allows for individual workers to be exempt from validation through settings in the Project setup form.

  • Is applied throughout the Microsoft Dynamics AX system, such as when entries are registered in hour, cost, and inventory journals; in timesheets and expense reports; and so on.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

Show

Select whether to display all workers or categories, or only those that are still active in the system.

Legal entity

Select the legal entity for which you want to view workers.

If your legal entity is borrowing workers from another legal entity for project work, you can add those workers to the validation groups that you create.

NoteNote
Workers can select different legal entities when they create timesheets only if intercompany timesheet support has been enabled in the legal entity by which they are employed. For more information, see Set up parameters for a timesheet system.
NoteNote

This control is available only if Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack is installed.
