  • 1.  Role Needed to Reconcile Bank Statements?

    Greetings All!

    While I'm not new to the D365 stack, I am fairly new to ERP.  I've been a CRM developer for almost 10 years but do understand ERP just not as much as CRM as the technology is fundamentally different.

    With that being said, I've been asked to troubleshoot some FandO issues with a current client so as not to have to hire another ERP consultant.  Currently, the controller is unable to reconcile bank statements.

    What role needs to be applied for this so that I can ensure she has the proper role applied?  Also, if she does have the correct role, what else might I look for that might be preventing the ability to reconcile bank statements?

    Regards.

    Hi Jeff,

    The best way to see what security is needed to access a page is to go to the page the person needs then go to the top menu bar and select Options>Page options>Security diagnostics. A slide out screen will appear showing all roles, duties, and privileges for the page. We actually duplicate any role we assign to users and prefix the name with our company acronym. That way we can tweak the role to what we need without changing the out-of-box roles.

    Jeff,

    Ester's advice is absolutely a valid option, another option would be to use task recordings to determine what security needs to be applied to user to perform a task. I've written on this topic a couple times in the past:
