Connector for Microsoft Dynamics

Integration between Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Dynamics ERP products has arrived with the release of Connector for Microsoft Dynamics!

Integration between Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Dynamics ERP products has arrived with the release of Connector for Microsoft Dynamics! Customers of all Dynamics ERPs now have access to the same simple, reliable and extendable integration with the CRM product that has shipped for GP, AX and NAV previously. Out-of-the-Box entity mappings provide immediate value by integrating the key data in both systems. That basic integration can be extended by adding new maps, or leveraging the SDK to create custom integrations. Connector is ready for use today!

​Connector for Microsoft Dynamics provides:

  • A robust Dynamics-specific integration that “just works”
  • Easy installation and deployment
  • Minimized architectural overhead
  • Transparency when things may go wrong

Connector for Microsoft Dynamics supports new integrations with the following Microsoft Dynamics products:

  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, 2013, 2015 & 2016 in all deployments
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, 2013 R2, 2015& 2015 R2
  • Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, 2012, 2012 R2 & 2012 R3
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013, 2013 R2, 2015 & 2016
  • Microsoft Dynamics SL 2011 SP1

Dynamics AX: Vendor & Customer Name Change History

This post will help you view Dynamics AX name change history. Business partners (vendors & customers) occasionally change names which can generate questions internally on how to handle, either changing the name in the existing vendor and maintain history, or create a new vendor with the new account and start fresh. If you choose the former option you might be concerned about losing history with the vendor’s prior name.  You should note that Dynamics AX does have the ability to see the history of business partner names changes.

You can inquire on the history by:

  1. Navigating to the master file, either Customer or Vendor
    • Accounts payable/Common/Vendors/All vendors
    • Accounts receivable/Common/Customers/All customers
  2. Select and open a particular business partner record. Note, it is not necessary to “Edit” the record.
  3. In the form, right click on the name field and choose “History”.

The screen that opens provides a name history for the record in addition to providing the name of the user who made the change and the date of the change.
