Render a lookup as a dropdown (optionset)

ReadyXRM 1 year ago updated by Serf 10 months ago 5

Rendering a lookup as an dropdown/optionset would be for things like reference data (e.g. country lists).  Users could add values without needing system customizer role and also you would be able to "retire" options.


Control Duration fields (Whole Number field with a Format=Duration) to present in either Hours or Minutes

bsbrant 8 months ago updated by BigFatCannibal 5 months ago 7

Currently, duration fields will present inconsistently in either minutes or fractions of hours. Screenshots below show how the same field with the same value is presented differently across different forms and views.

I have heard that the logic is to convert in hours as long as you use 15 minutes steps, but in my example that is clearly not the case. And even if it did, a consistent presentation regardless of the duration is desired. With Duration fields being used heavily in D365 Field Service, this is very confusing to users.

The ask here is to provide a control that would allow a global setting to either present in hours or minutes. Or possibly to have one control that presents in minutes and another that presents in hours.


Add N:N Relationships like a multi-select optionset

ReadyXRM 1 year ago updated by Tanguy TOUZARD 1 year ago 2

The idea would be create a better "multi-select" optionset.  The control could show all available values, and the user could pick which ones but just clicking the dots, the backend would make the N:N link.  Obviously would not work for large datasets.

Full file explorer connected to Sharepoint

A control like :

That uses Sharepoint as a backend (for instance, use it in Dynamics for Sales).


drag and stream lane view

Not sure if this has been done already but it would be really useful to have a drag and drop stream lane PCF that allows users to drag opps or cases from one stage to another.


Select a record for a lookup via a tree view

Maarten Bekaert 1 year ago updated by Adrian Sjöström 5 months ago 1

There already is a tree view for N:N relations, but I think it would be great to be able to search for a record for a lookup field via a treeview. A common example would be

  • selecting a product: the user would be default see the product families and is able to search these items or scroll through these and open the right family to drill down and select the right product.

Ideally the tree hierarchy could be based on 

  • a self-referencing 1:N relationship such as products and product families
  • a hierarchy based on another lookup/relationship from the "target" entity. 
    • Suppose  you have a lookup to select a country (custom entity)
    • Every country has a lookup (N:1) to another entity "Continent"
    • when opening the lookup search window, the user would see the lists of continents. The user is able to expand a continent which displays the countries linked to that continent and to select one. The selected country is completed in the lookup field.
  • a third option would be able to use different levels, where the hierarchy is composed of different entities and different N:1 relationships (Continent - country - State) but might be too complex...


Read-only grid with Group By functionality

Niels 4 months ago updated 3 months ago 1

One of the great features of the out-of-the-box Editable Grid is the 'Group By' functionality. 

It would be great to have the same functionality for read-only grids as well. Often it is not desirable to use Editable Grids, but the 'Group By' still having the Group By feature available would be great. 


Dynamic sub-grid with contextual awareness using FetchXML

Niels 7 months ago updated by Jonas Rapp 2 weeks ago 1

A great feature of the Common Data Service (current environment) List Records action in Power Automate is that you can use dynamic FetchXML queries. E.g. you can create a FetchXML query and use variables to dynamically update the query in the context of the flow:

It would be great to have a similar feature for sub-grids on forms. E.g. the Account form it would be nice to be able to show hierarchically related opportunities in the context of the selected Account. 

Jonas Rapp has a method where a plugin is used to achieve that. I have absolutely no idea if this is even possible to achieve using PCF but it would great if it is. 


Drag and Drop HTML Editor using Grape JS

It would be great if we could get a PCF that turns a multiple lines of text field into a drag and drop HTML editor using a open source html editor like GrapeJS.


Copy and paste screenshots directly into composed email

Michael Cai 10 months ago updated by Raphael Tagliani 8 months ago 1

It's something alot of people have wanted for a while but the ability to directly copy a image from a screenshot on your computer and paste it into the body of the email content and have it display contextually. Obviously it need to auto-attach the screenshot as an attachment first before displaying it contextually.
