Modern Model App designer (preview) – Dataverse (Dynamics 365)


A new Model App designer (preview) was added to the platform recently.

It follows a page-based authoring approach and resembles the new UCI.

Within the Maker Portal, while create an new Model-Driven App, we can select Modern App designer (preview)

Provide the name and description to the app and click Create.

Click on Play to see how the default app looks like

Now let us add the lead and contact entity and some dashboards to it.

Click on New Page

Select Table based view and form. The other option is Dashboard.

Search and select Lead and Contact and leave it checked – Show in navigation option

This adds the form(s) and view(s) for the table selected.


We can click on form and view and can either let all the forms and views selected by default or can specify specific views and forms.

“No forms have been explicitly selected. All forms will be available by default.”

Similarly, we can add a Dashboard

Here we have selected 2 dashboards and kept the option – Show in navigation checked.

We can update the title of the Dashboards added.

From the navigation menu, we can arrange the components added -i.e. move them up and down and as well remove them.

We can also add new Group and also the Subarea of type either Table or Dashboard.


Save and Publish the change and click on Play.

Our App is ready.

Similarly, we can edit an existing App in the new preview designer.

We can also Switch to classic 

Our Classic App Designer à

Lastly, the Data section in the new designer allows us to edit our entity/ table.

Hope it helps..
