Subgrid, QuickView, Linear Gauge, Arc Knob, Linear Slider controls added in new model-driven form designer (WYSIWYG) in PowerApps


Recently we were trying out the model-driven form designer and noticed the option of adding new input control to the form in it.


Few days back only I wrote about the addition of Subgrid control, however the limitation was that we couldn’t add new subgrid control. But with the new updates, we can now add new subgrid control along with Quick View and other controls also as shown below.

The other option to configure these controls is from the Controls tab of the field properties dialog box.

Sub-Grid added to the new model-driven form designer (WYSISYG) in PowerApps


Hi,

Microsoft is steadily adding all the essential features to the new model-driven form designer (preview) making it more and more usable and intuitive.

Latest addition is the support for sub-grid as shown below

The properties window for the sub-grid

`

We can select the view from either the related entities or view from any of the un-related entity (uncheck Related Records check box).

Similarly, we can enable view selectors and can show all the views or selected view as shown below.

We still can’t add new sub-grid to the form in the new form designer, for that we still need to go back to our classic form designer.

Check out below articles for more details –

Few improvements in the new model-driven form designer.

Hope it helps..

mvp

Update: Updated statistics based on award categories (not people) due to the number of multi-category awardees.

In previous years, I performed some comparisons on the MVP population after every award cycle. So, time to get some fresh statistics after July 2019 award cycle.

For comparison, I had a look at thepublic MVP statistics of July 3rd, 2018 against those of July 3rd, 2019, as the public MVP site was closed the first two days. From the numbers, it is clear that this cycle the number of MVPs went down again, from 3.030 last year, to 2.634 now (-13%).

The following table contains the changes per award category from July 2018 to
July 2019:

XrmToolBox – Using User Profile Migration tool for quickly updating User’s security roles on changing the Business Unit


Few weeks back, we Rahul Tiwary and Prashant Maurya developed a tool named User Profile Migration for moving Users along with their respective BU’s, Security Roles and Teams that they are part of from one instance to another.

Our earlier tool User Security Manager provided feature to update the BU, Security Roles, Team, Field Security Profile of the users(s). However when you change the BU of the user, just like our OOB behaviour of Dynamics CRM, all the security roles get removed.

What if we want to quickly update the BU of the user keeping the same the Security Roles assigned. (We need to make sure the new BU has all the same Security Roles, which ideally would be the case if we have created them at the root Business Unit level )

To do that – we can use User Profile Migration tool.

We can download the user profile (xml format) and only update the Business Unit name there and upload the file back in the tool.

Check the step by step guide here
