Use this form to select a template to use for a new record. This form opens when you attempt to create a new record for a form that has record templates created for it. Use the Create template form to create a record template for a form.


You can only apply templates for the areas of Microsoft Dynamics AX that you have access to. However, all template titles are visible to all users. Make sure that you consider user permissions when you create template titles. For example, avoid using titles that include words like "commission" if not all users are supposed to know that some workers in the company are paid with a commission-based salary.
