D365 – How to turn On/Off ‘Unified Interface Only mode’

April 7, 2019 1 comment

Today, I subscribed to my new D365 30 days trail and noticed the ‘Sales’ web Application opening up in ‘Unified Interface’ mode rather than in Classic web mode by default.

When noticed, the URL of the Dynamics landing page (My Apps) has a parameter forceUCI=1

FUI_1

It seems that Unified Interface ONLY mode has been implied on my new instance.

What is Unified Interface Only mode?

  • As per the documentation, Microsoft product team wants us to adopt to UCI (Unified Client Interface), to provide superior performance and usability.
  • All the new Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement environments (instances) and Common Data Service environments, will be provisioned in Unified Interface Only mode.

Enable/Disable Unified Interface Only mode:

  • To Enable/Disable Unified Interface Only mode, navigate to ‘Settings’ tab by clicking on ‘Advanced Settings’ from the ribbon Gear button.

FUI_3

  • Open Settings -> Administration -> System Settings

FUI_4

  • Select the option under ‘Use the new Unified Interface only (recommended)’ section.

Accessing the legacy web client app:

  • The legacy web client app, also known as Dynamics 365 – custom, is hidden from end users when a new environment is provisioned.
  • It is always visible to those with System Administrator and System Customizer roles, and to other custom roles with similar privileges.
  • To enable the Legacy App to non-admin users,
    • Go to Settings > Administration > System Settings > General tab. Under Show legacy Dynamics 365 – custom app, select Yes for Show this app to all users, not just administrators.
    • In the Power Platform Admin center, go to Environments and select an environment. Go to Settings > Behavior > Interface settings and then turn on Show legacy app to everyone, not just admins.

FUI_5

  • Note:
    • When ‘Unified Interface Only mode’ is enabled, Dynamics 365 – custom opens in Unified Interface and not in the legacy web client.
    • Legacy app opens only If users only have access to the Dynamics 365 – custom app and no other model-driven apps.

Merging solutions in CRM 2011

July 17, 2013 2 comments

Imagine you have 2 developers (Dev 1 & Dev 2) in your team working on 2 different organizations and 2 solutions, at the time of every release, you need to merge the components of both developers in to 1 solution.

One way is

  • Import Dev 1 & Dev 2 solutions in to another new organization.
  • Create a new solution and add the components of both solutions manually
  • This is easy if Dev 1 & Dev 2 solutions has less components.

What if the components are huge? you need to manually pick and add components both solutions in to a single solution or

Another way of merging solutions

  • Export & Save the both Dev 1 & Dev 2 solutions
  • Extract the saved solution .zip folders
  • Open “Solution.xml” files in both solutions in a notepad
Solution components

Solution components

  • In the <UniqueName> node, provide same unique name in both “Solution.xml” files
SolutionXml file

SolutionXml file

  • Import them back to new a organization
  • After the import, we get a new merged solution.
  • This is easier way of merging if the solutions has lot of components

Refer below MSDN video for more details

Solution import error in CRM 2011

Hi,

Solution import error

Sometimes you may get above error screen, when you try to import the “Solution”.

Reason:-

  1. Let’s assume you have a solution “XYZ.zip” with 3 files (i.e., [Content_Types].xml, Customizations.xml & Solution.xml)
  2. Extract the “XYZ.zip” to “XYZ_new” folder
  3. Do some customization changes (i.e., Add few buttons to Ribbon) to “Customizations.xml”
  4. Save the changes
  5. Zip the “XYZ_new” folder to “XYZ_new.zip”
  6. Try to Import the “XYZ_new.zip” as solution and you would get “Import solution error”

Fix:-

  • Always zip the files from root level not from folder level
    • i.e., When you make changes to solution files (Refer step 3 & 4) don’t zip “XYZ_new” folder, instead follow this step
    • open “XYZ_new” folder and select files (Ctrl + A) and zip the files to “XYZ_new.zip”
    • Import  the zip
    • Get the “Imported successfully” message

Hope it helps 🙂
