In Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 there is a new feature which allows you to add the same field to your form multiple times. However, when customising your form for the first time it is not obvious that you can do this. You wouldn’t know about the feature unless you have read the SDK, release notes or someone’s blog on it! Even some people who know about the feature couldn’t work out how to use the feature straight the way!
In this tutorial I will take you through the process of creating new fields and adding them to your main form for your entity. Adding new fields is fundamental to CRM and it is a pretty simple procedure. By adding fields to your entity you can start to capture data around the “thing” your entity is based on. Mark my words, over time the procedure of adding fields to entities will become laborious when you have a lot of them to create!
