There are certain cases where you can do everything you’d think is required to setup an editable Entity Form, yet for some reason it keeps appearing as read-only. In this post, I’ll explain why. Spoiler alert: I don’t have a great workaround for this problem, but to save some other people the headache of trying to figure out what’s going on, I thought I’d put together a quick post.

A couple of weeks ago I shared a solution for supporting multiselect option sets on a PowerApps Portal (they aren’t currently supported out-of-the-box), however it only worked for creating new records. If you want it to work for updating existing records, there is a bit more work to do, but thankfully not that much!

Everyone rejoiced when multiselect option sets were added in Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement v9. Unfortunately, PowerApps Portals/Dynamics 365 Portals do not yet support these field types out-of-the-box on Entity Forms or Web Forms. In this post, I’ll describe how, which a bit of code, you can add that support yourself, and demonstrate a particular pattern that can be used to add sophisticated UI elements to your Portal.

I’ve been a bit quiet these last few weeks due to a combination of work, landscaping and a bit of vacation. But things are now a bit closer to normal, and since I’ve been asked by a few people about the recent (well, maybe not so recent anymore) announcements regarding PowerApps Portals, I thought I’d share my thoughts here.

In a previous post, I asked you not to forget about CSS when customizing the user experience of some of the out-of-the-box features of the Dynamics 365 Portal product. In this post I’ll provide another example of using this technique to reduce the number of clicks required to remove a SharePoint document.

In my second post in this series on creating a custom registration form for a Dynamics 365 Portal implementation, I discuss the custom entity and tying it to an Entity Form (or even a Web Form!).
