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.

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 last post in this series on creating a custom registration form for a Dynamics 365 Portal implementation, I discuss some optional minor user experience enhancements.

In my third post in this series on creating a custom registration form for a Dynamics 365 Portal implementation, I discuss the behind the scenes processing required to get the registered user a contact record with login credentials.

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!).

While the Dynamics 365 Portal product offers flexibility in many areas, unfortunately the user registration process is not one of them. If you’re looking to add some fields to the form the user fills out when registering for your Portal, you’ll quickly find there is no simple way to do that. In this series, I’ll provide a different approach that might suit your needs if a custom user registration experience is required for your implementation.

This post covers my experience with the FastTrack for Dynamics 365 program, specifically the capabilities that help customers migrate from Dynamics 365 On-premise to Dynamics 365 Online.

In case you haven’t been able to tell, I’ve been on a bit of a Dynamics 365 Portal performance kick these days. One tool I didn’t include in my post on where to look when things are slow was the Portal Checker, which provides a self-service way to identify potential issues with your Portal, with suggestions on how to solve them.
