Enabling Capital Features

Before users can start planning capital assets, you must enable Capital features. Enable only the features you want to use. Based on your selections, dimensions, drivers, forms, and accounts are populated. You can come back later and incrementally enable additional features; however you must enable all the dimensions you want to include in the application the first time you enable features. You must also specify Named Assets the first time you enable Capital features.


After you enable a feature, you can’t later disable it.
