  1. I have a question to ask. I am not able to set alert rule on employment form. When I open Hcmworker form and go to employment tab, when i choose any field from there, alert rule form pops up, but cant see the field which i have selected from there, all other forms in AX are working perfect, but the problem is with Employment only. Could you please help me with it, maybe there is some property I have not setup something like that.

    Another question, When i directly go to setup and choose alert option, and then select new , a dialog pops up. no templates for alert rule have been created.. Please help me with this too

    I hope to hear soon from you
