You configure a mobile form for a Dynamics CRM entity and add a new field to it. But when you pull up a record on your phone, you don’t see the field.
But when you go to edit mode, there is the field. Why does it do that?
The answer is that CRM for Phones forms only display fields that contain data in read mode. This saves space on the smaller mobile screens. When you switch to edit mode, the field is available, and after you add data to the field, you will see it in read mode.
