Windows Store App updates: Approvals notifications and Expenses guests/gifts

We recently updated two of the Windows Store apps Dynamics AX 2012 Approvals and Dynamics AX 2012 Expenses.

Notifications were added to the Approvals app.  New approvals will show as a typical notification in the upper right corner in Windows 8.   This is similar to receiving an email or calendar notification.

Notifications from the Approvals app can be turned off within the PC Settings area like other Windows Store apps which are installed.


Guest and Gift features were added to the Expenses app edit experience.  This enables adding guests (name, company and title) for categories like meals or entertainment.   It also enables adding gift recipients and amounts for the gifts category.  Guest and gift recipients can also be (multi-) selected from the Windows 8 People app.  This is enabled by selecting the people icon when adding a new guest.

    Can we check these apps without Digital Certificate by using Self Signed Certificate?

    Hi Kyle,

    Thanks in advance

    You can test the apps out in demo mode without using a certificate. However, you need an SSL certificate issued from a certified issuer in order to use these applications. These certificates are available from a number of different providers and range from FREE (trial) to $60USD for the basic certs (available at,,
