Dynamics AX EnterprisePortal Dashboard

I was researching about how to create dashboards for the EP and I came across a wonderful Tool called Dundas Chart for SharePoint. You can get more detailed information by visiting their website.

Dundas Chart for SharePoint is a must-have for those looking to add advanced charting functionality to SharePoint 2007 projects which can easily be extended to AX EP ( WSS 2.0 & WSS 3.0). Its really very simple and you do not have to write any .NET codes. The output is stunning, eye popping. Its a great feature which can be deployed on AX EP. For this you must get the required DUNDAS Components (I've used a Trial Copy so there is a watermark).

Its a MUST lookout for the DAX EP and the results are awesome. It can easily be configured and the best part is that its all within the AX portal. I have configured this chart with Dynamics AX Demo data (The Global Trade & Manufacturing Company data for 4.01). My EP is on WSS 3.0 & .NET 3.0. Ive created a new EP Header by customizing the Web Menu \Web\Web Menus\EPGlobalMenuV3 to incorporate the new page named " Dashboard".
EP Developers, Sales teams must have a look.

Configuration is simple , theres a nice wizard :)

There are lots of stunning graphs to choose from and all this can easily be done by an end user with little training.

A MUST try out :)
For Licensing & Costs you need to contact DUNDAS.

Search Windows Live from AX

I finally got some free time and was doing some R & D on Windows Live Services, trying to explore some ways of using these services within AX. I found the Live Search Box resources and wrote some code within AX so that any user can search Windows Live [ and my BLOG :) ] within AX. Its really very simple . Before trying it yourself, go through these links below:
Windows Live Services
Live Search Box
This small utility will allow users to search Live.Com within AX (Provided he has Internet Access). It looks like this :)
You can search any specific page and also Live Search.

Happy Searching :)
