A question that pop ups from time to time is the difference between restarting a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Portal, and resetting it.

Then, a question showed up on the Dynamics 365 Community forums where that technique could be used to solve the problem. So I figured I’d write a quick blog post to get the word out on using Liquid to determine which Entity Form to display on a page.
