For the most part, Entity Lists try to mirror the functionality of the selected model-driven form in CDS. This means that certain settings on the model-driven form can have a significant impact on how things work in Power Apps Portals, event if it is not obvious at first. In this post, I’ll cover one of those not-so-obvious (at least to me) settings – Show Related Records.

For the most part I don’t blog about the (roughly) monthly releases for Power Apps Portals, mostly because they deal with bug fixes for relatively obscure issues. However, last month I was happy to see a few items on the list that I’ve been waiting for, and I thought were worth sharing.

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.

A topic I find that often leads to confusion for those new to Dynamics 365 Portal development (and even for those who have been doing it for a while) is the various options for displaying an Entity List or an Entity Form on a page. So in this week’s post, let’s look at the options.

As a follow-up to last week’s post on conditional action buttons, I wanted to dive a bit deeper into a very cool, but completely undocumented feature that exists in the Dynamics 365 Portal product: the Filter Criteria for action buttons.

A question was asked on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Community forums about how to hide or show a workflow action button based on the current user’s role, and since there are a few different ways to do this, I thought it was worthy of a blog post.
