Editable Grid in Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement – Configuration

Customer Engagement – Configuration

With the newer version of the Dynamics 365 starting from version 9.0, the editable grid has been introduced. Now users can directly update the records inline, instead of clicking and opening the record and then updating it.

The editable grid can be applied to both Entity Grid or its sub grid.

To make the grid editable, open the grid for customization, go to controls tab and add Editable Grid as the control.

For e.g. below are we adding the grid control to the opportunity entity by Dynamics 365 finance and operation customer engagement.

Thus, we saw how easily we can replace our existing grid with editable subgrid control, which allows users to update the record without navigating and opening the record. This has been one of the most requested features in the product and good that Microsoft included in the product.
