Dynamics CRM 9.0 : Multi Choice field

Dynamics CRM 9.0 is here and finally we got a very useful feature we as consultants and ISVs have always wanted to have.

A new type of field has been added which allows now users to have a multi selection optionset as you can see in the following screenshot. It can either be local or global just like ordinary Optionsets.

Note: getting the field value using javascript getAttribute method will return values separated by comma (ex: 1000001,1000002,1000003)












How to turn Dynamics CRM charts into 3D

Charts in Microsoft Dynamics CRM are by default built in 2D. While working on a sales pipeline for example, you may want to see a chart representing it in 3D instead of 2D. This post gives the answer, and it is not easy at all.

First try to export your chart. This export generates the associated XML file.




Once your XML file is exported, look for the tag <Area3DStyle> and change its attribute “Enable3D” from false to true.
