Dynamics Ax - Task Recorder

This is a free add-on for Ax that allows you to record whatever you're doing in Ax (forms that open, user input and screenshots) and automatically create documentation for you

So far I've been using it to produce Microsoft Word documents that will become part of a user manual for a bespoke Ax module

This is the first time we've actually managed to get it to work! Whenever we've tried it in the past it just wasn't useable
So for anyone else who's had problems with it, try the latest version, after having used it for several weeks without problems, I can recommend it

It's a LOT easier than taking hundreds of screenshots and cutting/pasting them into a word document

It's by no means perfect though, and there is still a fair amount of editing required before the document that it spews out is presentable enough to be of any use to an end-user, but it does make life easier

You can download it from here (requires partnersource login)

There's a brief but succinct description here at the axaptapedia too
