Today I’d like to demonstrate an example on how RealTimeDatasets in Power BI may be used.
Of Course there are multiple possible “real world” scenarios to use this functionality like showing the temperature, humidity or actual value of whatever IOT device. I decided to track Twitter as it was one of my own interests to see some stats about tweets.
The ones of us which are actively working with VSTS know that it is sometimes a hard job to keep track on all the tasks being created by project managers or other users among multiple projects. I found myself struggling with the amount of emails being sent and to follow all the links to view my tasks.
I could just find alerts to be announced in development. So anyone who was missing the functionality to set an alert on any dataset like
- Invoice payment
- Customer changes
Will be happy to read about this functionality to be in development 🙂
Have you ever thought how project management and accounting finds its prices when it comes to planning in work breakdown structure or in the forecast models? I just spent some time to figure it out.
We all know Dynamics 365 for operations offers us a complete new entity store from where we may last but not least consume data for evaluation purposes. Inspired from that idea I started to do some research for similar opportunities within Dynamics AX 2012.
Indeed I’ve been able gather the Information I wanted and I’d like to share that with you as I’m sure some of you are still looking for something like that. Let’s see how it works.
Have you ever wondered when the consumption of items would have effect on your MS Dynamics AX/D365 for Operations Project? Have you ever wondered when to use which type of item consumption on your projects? If the moment of consumption – or let’s say the moment your project is charged – really matters when it comes to evaluation and project assessment you should have a look at this blog post. The results are finally a mix of documentation I found on the TechNet and the experience I made during the last years.
Indeed it’s the common use of financial dimensions in Dynamics AX/D3650 – to summarize values across multiple orders/projects/… name it. From my experience some people might not really know how it works and how they might take advantage of it when it comes to building a powerfull project hierarchy.
One scenario where I tend to use it, is when it comes to projects within which we sell items for which we have to grant waranty. Continue reading
