When running task recorder in Dynamics AX 2012, do you receive an error noting that ‘Recording could not be initiated’? This is most likely because the Default_Default node is not directly usable for recording, rather it is just a main node under which you may create actual recording nodes.
So if you are on the default node and click New node, it will create a recording node for you (note the different icon), to start recording. See below:
It is also possible to import a node structure from excel, as described in the attached document, see below where I filled in a simple structure for sales and imported it.
After the import (note: when importing like this it is possible to create a structure with multilevel master nodes, each having recording nodes under them. In order to enable the import hierarchy button one needs to set Task recorder to advanced mode.
When using the import method repeatedly on the same excel spreadsheet, it will just create a new node and you will now have two nodes with a structure under them. If the old node is deleted all recordings in that node will also be deleted (in Task recorder) but remain in the specified folder.
