I am looking to create some GL accounts in Dynamics AX 2012 to track some statistical metrics such as departmental headcount, new customers for the period, total active customers, etc.
I do not see a main account type or category for statistical.
Just wondering what the best practice is as I'm sure others have wanted to track some non financial metrics.
The only solution I can come up with is to use a range of GL accounts well away from my financial accounts and have an offset (credit) account for each metric so that there is zero financial impact if the accounts must be financial.
I'd also like to eventually use the balances in the statistical accounts in calculations for allocations in the future.
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
Did u find any solution on this issue.
My client also required quantitative data while posting some expense ledger account.
Hi Joseph, this is probably the best approach with the current version. I would also be interested in alternative approaches.
I am working with the stat accounts now, very nice addition to 2012. Try this posting-very helpful. http://blog.encorebusiness.com/setting-statistical-accounts-dynamics-ax-2012/
Why not just use the standard functionality, which is designed for this purpose....
A statistical qty may be entered within the journal separately from a financial value.
