Typical business process for production order is to check shortages, when no shortages, release the order. the release step should produce all the paperwork.

But in AX we only get the route card. The picking list we have to print separately.

If we want to print it auto, it can only be happening with the start transaction which is too late for the picking list. I need to pick materials before I can start.

Our request is to add a checkbox  to release general tab.. so we can print all docs at the same time. Would be a big improvement and saves us t he customization we have to do for each of our customers

Thank you for your feedback.

This is a great suggestion! We will consider this in our roadmap.

Would be ideal if we could print the existing (but not status-changing) Production order report (BOM and routing data) as part of the release step or start step. Double printing must be avoided.
Also the option to print attachement of certain document types from the released product or the production order (drawing etc) would be appreciated.

Hi Evert,

There is already some sort of idea like this. I hope it'll be included because I am running into these customer questions as well.
