Assign a screen layout (Retail essentials) [AX 2012]

Updated: March 28, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3

When you set up Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail POS registers for Retail essentials, you can specify how the screen appears to your workers. When you set up a register, you select the ID of the screen layout that the register uses. You can also assign screen layouts to specific stores or specific workers. This topic explains how to assign a screen layout to one or more stores, registers, or workers.

When Retail essentials starts, it determines which screen layout to display. For example, you assign one screen layout to a specific store, another layout to a specific register, and another layout to a specific worker. In this case, Retail essentials uses the following order to determine the appropriate layout:

  1. Worker

  2. Register

  3. Store
