Deprecated: Department hierarchy control [AX 2012]

Updated: February 6, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, you could use the Organization Units form to define department structure. You could then use the Organization View form to view the structure in a graphical format.



Reason for deprecation

The department hierarchy control has been deprecated in favor of new organization hierarchy functionality.

Replaced by another feature

Yes. New organization hierarchy functionality was added in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. This new functionality provides flexibility in a new shared model. You can combine hierarchies across companies and also include different types of organizational units, such as departments, in the structure of the hierarchy.
