Another marketing tip is taking advantage of free tools available that can help you to manage your marketing impacts, such as social media combined into one platform on Hootsuite, or Google Analytics showing you how often customers visit your website and what pages have a high bounce rate (how often individuals visit a page and take no interactions before reading).

The dashboard of Hootsuite is shown below, these accounts are free up to three platforms and are very useful in staying organized. Here you can select the platforms you would like to post to, as well as create schedules dependent on your desired time of the post to be sent. You are able to like, comment, follow/unfollow, retweet etc. all within this one tool.

In note, you’re not losing any features from the regular platforms, although you are gaining a large amount of accessibility!
Another helpful free tool is Google Analytics, which tracks and reports website traffic. Enabling you to check things like the average amount of time spent by a website visitor, what they visit, exit rates, as well as analytics on things like location and language. These aspects help to see which pages of your website need to be altered to appeal to viewers. If changes are made successfully the Google Analytics results will resemble the improvements.

Applying these simple tips may show an impact on your marketing success.

When implementing Dynamics AX for a client the four fields in these journals that I get asked the most about are the Relation, Account Code and Item Code fields as well as the Find next option. I’ll group the Account Code and Item Code fields together for simplicity. Both the Account Code and Item Code fields have three options available to them All, Group and Table.

We recently had a client who wanted to receive goods as quickly as possible off the delivery trucks as to open the receiving door for further deliveries. They also needed the option to put the received goods to two different receiving staging areas, depending on the product, before moving them to their final location in the warehouse.

The trouble here is that AX will not allow 2 put actions on a PO Receipt while also using the Unit Sequence and Unit Conversions of the item to assign license plates to less than pallet amounts during receipt. The quickest way to receive goods off the trucks in their case was to use the “Purchase Order Line Receiving” mobile device menu option. By using the “Line” rather than “Item” receiving option, we eliminate the need to type in lengthy Item IDs, instead opting to enter the PO line number on the order and having AX sort out which item and item details it’s expecting to receive.

The first thing you’ll need is a simple work template, that defines the pick/put actions and Work Class ID that is available to the mobile device to perform the work.
