Relabel the Workflow Submission Menu Items

The default labels that are generated by the Workflow Wizard for the submission menu items are a little generic, so it is a good idea to just fix the labels so that they look more appealing to the user.

NOTE: This is part of the Developing a Product Approval Workflow in Dynamics AX 2012 blog series where we show how to develop a completely new workflow to manage the new product approval process. If you want to see all of the other posts in this series, click here.

How to do it…

To relabel the submission buttons for the workflow so that they look better, follow these steps:

  1. Open up the ProductApprovalWFType project and open the Menu Items group so that you can see the Submit and Cancel items.
  2. Select the ProductApprovalCancelMenuItem and set the Name to Cancel and the Help Text to Cancel workflow.
  3. Then select the ProductApprovalSubmitMenuItem and set the Name to Submit and the Help Text to Submit workflow.
  4. When you have finished, save the project to catch any errors.
