Known Issues in V9

By | October 22, 2017

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen this kind of comprehensive “known issues” page for the earlier releases of Dynamics 365/CRM, but it’s definitely worth looking at just so you are aware of some of the issues you may run into in V9:

Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement General Availability Readme (Known Issues)

I just tried reproducing a couple of those issues on my trial instance of V9, and, it seems, at least some of them may have been fixed:

  • I was able to create a dynamic marketing list
  • I was able to add a custom view to the account entity

But, for example, a multi-select option set does show up in the edit mode all the time (in the unified interface)

In other words, it’s possible that some of those issues are being worked on/have been fixed.. But, if you run into something that does not look normal, have a look at that page above – it might be a known issue in this first release of V9.

That said, it’s interesting to look at those issues in perspective. Some of them are happening on IPod, others are happening on Android devices, there are issues happening in the Internet Explorer, and there are yet other issues happening in Firefox.. Some of them are happening in Edge/Firefox/IE 11, but, it seems, not in Chrome. Etc etc.. It seems Dynamics has become a bit of a victim of its own success this time around – there are so many environments it has to work in that it’s almost impossible to make it issues-free everywhere. Well, I’d love it to be issues-free, but, it seems, I can understand why it’s not.. yet:)

So, be aware of those known issues, and enjoy 365-ing!
