D365FO Print Management settings per module

First and most common way of configuring the Print Management in D365FO is on the module level. All the Print Management reports related to a particular module are found on one common form for that module. Sadly, the navigation to these forms is not the same across the modules and the users often have difficulties finding the module-level D365FO Print Management settings.

To resolve this confusion, we have compiled a list of Print Management modules and the navigation to their settings forms.

For each of the modules you can see the path to the form with the module’s Print Management settings and also a list of document types related to that module and for which the settings can be specified:

When to use the module-level D365FO Print Management settings

Module-level D365FO Print Management settings allow us to specify the coarse-grained and medium-grained settings.

  • Coarse-grained settings: you apply them to all the documents of certain type, for example all Sales Invoice reports. You would go through the module-level settings for the Accounts Receivable module and you would use the Default setting to specify the print destination for the majority of your Sales Invoice reports:

  • Medium-grained settings: if needed, you apply them to a group of documents of certain type, which meet a common condition, for example all Sales Invoice reports for a Customer group 20. You would again go through the module-level settings for the Accounts Receivable module:

And if that is not enough, we can use the node-level D365FO Print Management settings for specifying the fine-grained settings.

When to use the node-level D365FO Print Management settings

Let's say that there is a customer for which you need a special treatment, for example printing on a special printer with customized paper and by using a special template? We could apply such fine-grained settings through the node-level Print Management setting for that particular customer. Node-level settings are applied to the Print Management nodes. You can check a list of available Print Management nodes by looking at the PrintMgmtNodeType enum. Some of them are: CustTable, VendTable, PurchTable, SalesQuotationTable etc.

  • Fine-grained setting: you apply them to the selected document types on the node-level, for example on the CustTable node. You would invoke this kind of Print Management setting directly from that customer form, where you can for example override the default setting:

    1. Hi Frank,

      Thanks for the kind comment, you are very welcome!

      We found this kind of overview useful while learning about the D365FO Print management. To help even further, we have put the links to all Print management settings directly on the Docentric AX Workspace, available also in our FREE edition.

    1. Hi Poonam,

      Yes, you can change the number of copies to print in the Number of Copies setting, but only for the Printer and Screen print destinations. In case of the Printer print destination, this field specifies how many copies will be printed, while in the case of the Screen print destination it is ignored.

      If the Number of copies field is enabled, you can enter the value directly in the field. Alternatively, you can enter the number of copies in the Copies field in the Print destination settings > Printer form. This value is then automatically updated in the Number of copies field when you return to this form.

      You can read more about this functionality and print management in general in this comprehensive blog post: Print Management in Simple Words.
