Deprecated: Approval and spending limits [AX 2012]

Updated: October 24, 2013

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 provides basic support for approval and spending limits.



Reason for deprecation

The approval and spending limits feature in AX 2009 did not provide the precise level of control over expenses and approvals that some companies require.

Replaced by another feature

Yes. The feature has been removed, and a replacement feature is available. The Signing Limits feature in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 provides advanced configuration and administration capabilities, so that companies can enforce corporate spending and approval limits at a more precise level. Additionally, the Signing Limits feature enables spending and approval limit self-service requests to be submitted via the employee self-service portal. Employees can use self-service requests to request a signing limit for business expenses. Managers who approve employee expenses can use self-service requests to request an approval limit. Therefore, this feature automates and simplifies the process for requesting and approving spending and approval limits by using workflow.
