The new model-driven form designer (WYSISYG) in PowerApps for Model-driven apps (Dynamics 365 CE) Preview

Nishant Rana's Weblog

The new model-driven form designer (Preview) has some nice features added to it like

  • Searching for fields in the form

  • Tree View showing visual hierarchy of the controls for quick view and navigation inside the form.

The icon also makes it easy to identify the data type of the field.

  • We can also check and configure how the UI would render for different type of client application

  • Property Pane for the type of control selected which allows us to quickly update the properties unlike selecting the field and then clicking on Change Properties which will open the dialog box.

  • No Business Rules or Form Properties dialog box.
  • No Enable Security Roles…

Dynamics CRM 2015 – Scope of Business Rules

Business Rules was introduced in Dynamics CRM 2013 which was restricted to client side only. Now with  latest CRM 2015, server side business rule is available which will help business user easily configure validation logic and reduce the development effort.

There are three levels of scope:
