WDTC.02.D365.WG.1.PDF: Waterdeep Trading Company Project - Module 2: Configuring the Localizations for Faerûn (Digital)
The Waterdeep Trading Company is the purveyor of all the finest adventuring supplies to travelers, rogues, wizards and clerics in all Faerûn, and are headquartered in the great city of Waterdeep on the Sword Coast.
Recently they have been experiencing a huge upswing in the traffic through their store and have realized that the old quill and scroll based financial system is not going to scale any more, and their manual supply chain management processes that they are using will not be able to handle their forecasted future demand.
As a result, they have taken the step to modernize their finance and supply chain systems and implement Microsoft Dynamics 365 to manage all their legal (and not so legal) entities, and the following is a journal of how they set up their system, and how they tweaked the system to make it work perfectly for them.
If you want to follow along in the journey and set up your own copy of the system, then feel free.
Module 2: Configuring the Localizations for Faerûn
Faerûn has several local nuances that we will need to support in order to get everything up and running smoothly for the Waterdeep Trading Company, including address information for the region, and the tracking of the Faerûn currencies of gold, silver, copper, electrum and platinum denominations. Not to mention the numerous local languages that need to be supported.
Unfortunately, Faerûn is not one of the officially supported regions for Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. Although we have submitted numerous support requests for a localization pack to be officially delivered for Faerûn since we think that it is an up and coming marketplace, we have not seen any official roadmaps where this is a planned deliverable.
Don’t worry though; we will show you how to set up the required localizations yourself so that we don’t have to wait for the localization packs to be developed and delivered with the standard product.
