As we all are aware of the credit limit functionality we have in AX 2012 R2 which lets you specify the maximum amount of credit to extend to your customers. If a credit limit is specified, it is checked automatically when a user attempts to update a document. If the credit limit is exceeded, a message is displayed to the user.
Right now there is no standard workflow for customer and prospect credit approval, Mazik Global has proposed a new workflow template which will allow configuring and routing workflows for customer and prospect credit approval.
So a new workflow type “Customer Credit approval workflow” can be created in Sales and marketing > Setup > Sales and Marketing workflows > New. This workflow will define the rules to route customers for credit approval.
When a new customer is created the default status of the customer is set on hold for all transactions and the workflow is triggered.
Here are the following steps which takes place:
- The customer is created by the sales rep with basic information and submits the workflow.
- The workflow is then routed to the credit department who will capture the credit limit for the customer.
- The credit limit is entered for the customer by the credit department.
- The Regional manager or controller has to approve it based in the workflow settings.
Same is for the Prospect with a workflow named “Prospect Credit approval workflow”. However once the Prospect is approved; it converts the prospect to customer automatically.
Whenever a user change or update the credit limit field for the customer, the workflow is triggered automatically.
