Best Windows 8 Apps

The name of this app from the store is "Dynamics AX 2012 Expenses", but when you install it on your PC its name is abbreviated to only "Expenses", but when you open it, its name is "Microsoft Dynamics". It is also not intuitive and sometimes requires to be uninstalled then reinstalled to clear some app cache otherwise you'd continue to get errors visualizing your previous reports and unreconciled expenses. Needs huge improvements from the UI and the accidental click out of the context menu. If you are in a context menu and filling your information, if by chance you click outside then you lose all what you have written so far!

UI is not intuitive. Through the workflow your eyes have to keep jumping left and right. Tiring!

not providing enough guidance on how to resolve unreconciled expenses, no menu items, no help

I can't believe we even put this rubbish out! Its opening another person's page so I can see her team's expense reports and approvals... that can't be compliant!!!! Take this down and replace with something that works

User interface and user flow is not intuitive to me. It's hard for me to copy & paste multiple values from past expenses into new expense reports (such as cost center, approver alias, interim approver alias).

Rather easy to use but Windows 8 Modern UI style is a bit strange for this kind of app if comparing it to earlier reporting tools, which were web based and much more like filling some paper form. Build in possibility to use web camera to scan receipts is nice idea.

How do I print my submitted expense report? Workflow is challenging in some areas, not the flow I expected. Interface is designed to be easy to use with the convenient tiles. I'm used to the Windows 7 GUI, so this Windows 8 interface takes some getting use to. I suspect Windows 10 will normalize this a great deal.

I have no understanding of why people would rate this app poorly. It is perfect for submitting expenses and SO MUCH BETTER that the web experience. I now no longer dread doing my expense reports. The auto connection to my Amex unreconciled charges streamlines expense submission. I can snap a picture, attach it from OneDrive of my receipts and off it goes.
Thanx for the good work. Please keep it coming.

This gets me nowhere???

Talk about a step down from the old app. Add to that the fact that the link to the FAQ and user guide is broken on the page describing the new tool and the fact that it asks you to identify the 'service connection' with no explanation of what a service connect is when you try to log on over VPN and its pretty much unusable.

Can't even open

Slick, fast and easy to use. Very intuitive.

1. Did not see approvers given. Had to change approvers on web app.

Full of bugs, can't save 50% of the time, a productivity killer... needs serious testing. The UX is also awkward and needs better design and usability testing.

I searched everywhere for the Submit button; had to look up training and even then it was hard to get to. When I submitted, it asked me whether I "submitted the required receipts". No receipts required so i responded NO - which stopped the submissions. Come on folks - we are MSFT - be more precise and FILTER. If NO receipts are required, don't even ask the stupid question.

My previous review complained that I couldn't import credit card expenses. Now I realize that this is possible.

How do I submit an expense report for my Manager?
The App doesn't give my much information.

creating a new report is not too difficult. but in the UI flow it doesn't tell you that you have to submit it after the report creation. new report sits in draft state without clear guidance on how to submit it. in the old tool, this necessary step is very clear in the UI flow.
BTW, training materials only have screenshots of SharePoint version. a diagram of step by step workflow would help new users to understand necessary steps in order to get expenses reimbursed.

it might help your app to crash less.
Also; can you make sure to pass this by a designer before releasing any new versions? it is a horrible experience; hard to use, impossible to figure and sucky all around.
also; why doe every actions take 10 seconds to chat with the server before doing something?
17 April 2015
I would give anything of the old tool. UI and pure logic is so difficult to understand.
16 April 2015
very basic application with terrible user Interface/friendliness
This thing is hideous and quite possibly the most unintuitive app I have ever seen. How do I give zero stars?
This is so confusing. How do I delete items from the unreconciled list? I took a picture of my receipt with my phone. Now I see duplicate entries.
UX is even a step back from the old MSExpense

This is such a challenging UI i don't even know where to begin...in terms of the other areas. To many screen to many clicks,

This is agonizingly slow and difficult to use. I guess we were so desperate to cram the app into Dynamics that we just threw usability out the window? With 100k employees using this, the lost productivity will be staggering.

The original MS Expense tool used more intelligence within it when completing an expense report. This helped to create expense reports quicker and with more consistency.
Doesn't allow me to perform any manager functions. Difficult and unintuitive to use. Web interface is far better and I can't see why I will ever use this app.

aside from making a demo, I can't see how to use this. the msexpense2 web interface is much quicker to use and fetch some info from Amex directly. With this app, you have to pretty much type everything...
