As there are many time and attendance solutions that have specialized terminal equipment available, the Dynamics AX solutions might seem like a step back in user friendliness. A way to improve the experience for end users is to launch the terminal window directly when the terminal is turned on, so they don’t need to launch the window separately.
For Dynamics 365 for Operations it is easy to just launch the URL with the right attributes in the browser to full screen. Use either mi=JmgRegistrationJobQueue for the job card terminal or mi=JmgRegistrationTouch for the job card device and add &limitednav=true on the end to restrict navigation access.
Go to the terminal setup (Production control > Setup > Manufacturing Execution > Configure job card Terminal or Configure job card for Devices) and add the user to log in directly. On the terminal you can turn off the “prompt for production area” to further limit the interaction.
Put the shortcut in the windows “Start up” folder. An example of the shortcut could be:
chrome.exe --start-fullscreen --app=https://[yourURL]/&cmp=[Company]&mi=JmgRegistrationTouch&limitednav=true
When it comes to AX 2012 you can do this by using the .axc files in combination with an XML file to launch directly to the terminal window. I have even been able to do this in a Citrix environment.
Just use the ax32.exe startupCmd command and prompt an XML. Read Janet Blakes bloggpost to do this.
