Screenshots in Task Recordings ni Dynamics 365 for Operations

The new Task Recorder in Dynamics 365 for Operations is a cool tool. It allows you to create a complete recording of a business process which then can be used for documentation, training and also for automated testing (I will revisit that in a later post). In this one we will take a closer look at documentation.

In AX 2012 the task recorder created nice screenshots in the word export but feature is no longer present in D365 for Operations. At least not in PU20 that my customer is running. There is however a solution.

If you use Google Chrome (which I do) there is actually a plugin that you can install and silently monitors you progress when you are creating you task recordings and takes a snapshot when you click on something. Once you save the recording as a Word Document these snapshots are inserted into the document.

Geek Trick: Custom “New Tab Page” in Google Chrome

Yesterday I signed up for WunderList (since Microsoft bought it i thought I’d give it a try) and I noticed that there were a Extension in the Google Chrome store which displays my Wunderlist as a “New Tab Page”. That got me thinking: I wonder if I could set up any page as a New Tab Page… Like Todoist, which is the todolist manager I use.

I looked in the Chrome Store and found Replace New Tab Page which I installed and customized to display Todoist… Happy Days
