Deprecated: Custom date-effective functionality for Human resources forms [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

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, Employee/contractor, Job, Position, and Department (Organization) records are stored as date-effective records.



Reason for deprecation

The functionality that the feature provided was limited. The feature has been replaced with the new date-effective framework in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Replaced by another feature

Yes. The feature is no longer available, and a replacement feature is available. All the records continue to be date-effective, but they use a new date-effective framework. In AX 2012, both the date elements and the time elements are exposed in the user interface.

For more information, see the white paper Implementing and Updating the Human Resources Framework for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Modules affected

Human resources

Changes to installation

This change does not affect application installation.

Changes to upgrade

Existing date-effective records are upgraded to the new tables that store these records. The AX 2012 framework completes the processing of date-effective records.


The table structure has been normalized in Human resources. Therefore, one date-effective record might be split into multiple records, depending on the new table definitions in AX 2012.
