Electronic Signatures

    Hello out there!

    Can someone guide how to implement electronic signatures?  Can they be put on any printed document or is it restricted to only a few in standard AX?

    Thanks!

    Hi Mark,

    Are you referring to the definition of electronic signatures described here? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamicsax-2012/appuser-itpro/electronic-signature-overview

    If so, it is not related to printing a picture of a signature. It is about logging an action which needs to be confirmed by a user with an additional "password". Then a log will be kept of the changes together with details of the user, PC, timestamp.

    Hi Andre,

    Appreciate your response.  The electronic signature referenced is needed to print someone's signature on documents.  How is this set up and then used in AX 2012 R3?

    (My apologizes if I confused this by prefacing with 'electronic' for this.)

    Thanks!

    Use this procedure to require electronic signatures for built-in processes or processes that you previously created.
     
    Click Organization administration > Setup > Electronic signature > Electronic signature requirements.
    By default, the electronic signature functionality is available for the following manufacturing processes:
     
    Approve route
    Approve route version
    Activate route version
    Approve bill of materials (BOM)
    Approve BOM version
    Activate BOM version
    Release production order
    Report production order as finished
     
    You can also set up a custom electronic signature requirement for a table or field in Microsoft Dynamics AX.
    Custom requirements for electronic signatures can cause application errors.
