How to add your personal PowerBI Dashboard as a system dashboard

Dynamics 365 App Designer - Web Interface is going to be / already deprecated?

In version 1710 (9.0.2.2279) of Dynamics 365 Online we get this dialog to create a new app…
As you can see it contains the Client options Web and Unified Interface.

After an automatic minor update to the newer version 1710 (9.1.0.33) online you only have this dialog available.

This version creates a unified interface app by default and you cannot create apps with a web interface anymore.

Microsoft is transitioning from the classic web interface to the relatively new unified interface.

Is this the version where we cannot create new web interface based apps anymore?

Either this is a bug or we face the next wave mentioned in Steve Mordue’s article:

  1. It’s not a bug. 9.1 has the unified interface for all new apps but still supports the web refresh interface for existing apps.

    10.0 (April 2019) will probably have the unified interface across all platforms.

  2. It obviously is not and is not only for new trials as its documented here:

    thanks to Gred DeCarlo who brought that up on my LinkedIn post...

Yet Another Address Autocomplete PCF Control–powered by Bing

In this blog post I will not go into detail in how to install all the pre-requisites that are required to build and run PCF controls. My goal was to build a new PCF control and get into coding of PCF controls as fast as possible.

Here are a few links to articles that will help you installing the pre-requisites (Microsoft PowerApps CLI) https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/component-framework/get-powerapps-cli
Other good references to get into this topic:
https://toddbaginski.com/blog/how-to-create-a-powerapps-pcf-control/
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/component-framework/create-custom-controls-using-pcf
I looked through the Guido Preite’s https://pcf.gallery/ which will help you find appropriate use cases / examples for your own needs. It did not take very long to find a simple example to start with: Andrew Butenko's https://pcf.gallery/address-autocomplete/
A few moments later I had the idea to create yet another address autocomplete control b…

Regarding SPFieldMultiLineText (Add HTML/URL content to a field) programmatically

I recently tried so set some HTML content in a SharePoint list column of type SPFieldMultiLineText.

My first approach was this piece of code:

SPFieldMultiLineText field = item.Fields.GetFieldByInternalName("Associated Documents") as SPFieldMultiLineText; StringBuilder docList = new StringBuilder(); docList.Append(""); foreach (DataRow docRow in addDocs) { DataRow[] parent = dr.Table.DataSet.Tables[0].Select("DOK_ID=" + docRow["DOK_MGD_ID"].ToString()); if (parent != null && parent.Length > 0) { docList.AppendFormat("{1}", parent[0]["FilePath"].ToString(), parent[0]["Title"].ToString()); } } if (docList.Length > 0) { // remove trailing tag docList.Remove(docList.Length-5, 5); } docList.Append(" "); string newValue = docList.ToString(); item[field.Title] = newValue;
What this code does is to get all associated documents to the main document and to add these document uri links to the "Assoc…

Set Multi-OptionSet values with a custom workflow activity

As the relatively new multi-optionset field type arrived with v.9 of Dynamics 365 the need to set values via workflow is quite a common requirement. So I searched within the community to find some ideas on how to solve and create such a workflow activity and so I stumbled upon Demian Raschkovan’s Workflow Tools with can be found on his github repository: https://github.com/demianrasko/Dynamics-365-Workflow-Tools/blob/master/msdyncrmWorkflowTools/msdyncrmWorkflowTools/Class/MapMultiSelectOptionSet.cs

It gave me some basic ideas to reach my requirements which are: Should be generic for any type of entity Ability to specify the attribute name of the required multi-optionset for that entity Provide a list of multi-optionset values (comma-separated) Keep existing values (True/Yes => add provided values / False/No => replace all values with the provided values Remove specific value(s) from an existing set of values
My code sample (without other dependencies):
using Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk; using Micr…
