Using Emojis in Dynamics

  Dynamics does allow emojies. It’s just that, and I’m not sure why nobody else(myself included) spotted this interesting feature before Meagan Walker did it in her blog post: http://meganvwalker.com/using-emojis-in-optionset-fields/ So I could not help but to dig a bit more into it.

Dynamics Portals: External Authentication

Dynamics Portals: Adding a custom button to the entity forms

Was looking into how to add a custom button to the entity form, and found this thread in the community forums: https://community.dynamics.com/crm/f/117/t/274955 So with a little modification(class attribute of the new button element), just so the second button looks similar to the default “submit” (which is re-labelled to “Subscribe” on the screenshot below), here is… Read More »
