The preview release of Platform update 33 for Finance and Operations is now available (general availability is scheduled for March). This is part of a series highlighting features in the new platform update.
It Does The Math!!!
The ability to calculate inside of cells (instead of on external calculators) was a handy feature in AX2012 that we were sad to lose in the great D365 migration to the cloud.
Well put your 10-keys back in your deskdrawers because D365 does the math again!
When entering data into numeric cells, start your entry with the equals sign (=) and let D365 handle the rest.
1+1 = 2
(2×3) + (4×5) = 26
It Even Does The Advanced Math!!!
Dynamics recognizes pi, e, factorials, logarithms and trig functions. A complete list of the supported math expressions can be found here.
5! (5x4x3x2x1) = 120
Cos(pi) + ln(e) = 2
The supported math expressions don’t include imaginary numbers (remember i ?). Fortunately, accountants have been handling imaginary numbers on their own for centuries.
