I believe you guys know that there are lot of enhancements and design changes in retail R3. Because of this reason, I got to take a break from sharing Retail knowledge as I don’t want my posts to go obsolete on R3
Now, I’m with you to help you ramp up with retail R3. In today’s post, we are going to understand how workers are connected to a Store and how a POS person can connect to POS system.
If you are new for Retail, I would suggest you to refer to my previous post on basic retail understanding.
Linking workers to stores:
Initially, when I started working with AX2012 retail, I went crazy to configure an employee to be able to log in to POS system, because, I didn’t find any documents that explain me the things.

(In previous post, we understood how to identify, to which store my POS system connected to.)
Personal number of employee is going to be Operator number that we need to submit during the POS login.

You can notice “Sunny” is now an employee connected to “Seattle” store.
Points to remember while you are linking an employee to a store:
Guys, with this information you will now be able to login to POS and start exploring the POS system. In my further posts, I will take you with the configurations part.
DAX to the MAX – Sunny
