The subject of today’s tip is highly debatable but Eric Regnier did do justice to it. (Want to start a discussion of your own? Email your tip to jar@crmtipoftheday.com) In many implementations particularly complex ones, often comes a situation to determine if the same entity should be used for the different “types” (or categories).

Today’s tip is from Moez Tounsi (and if you have a tip of your own, email to to jar@crmtipoftheday.com). It is about Dynamics 365 Administration Center (yes, it’s still there – t.j.).

Sometimes even the best of the best could be puzzled by the mysterious innerworkings of Dynamics 365/CDS SDK.

With P2 licensing, can you control who can spin up a CDS instance via Azure Active Directory since each license comes with 2 CDS instances? (we don’t want hundreds of CDS instances cluttering up our tenant) The question from an enterprise business size UG member, generously relayed to us by Jerry “Forever Tipster” Weinstock Via […]

Until now, embedded canvas apps were a mere eye candy. But with just announced new capabilities you can now talk back to the form. Kind of. More “bark orders” than “talk” but this is awesome start! Embedded canvas apps now provide the ability to perform actions to navigate, refresh and save the host form. With […]
