USD – Associated Views (Unified Interface)

I am currently VERY hard at work preparing training material for three courses I’ll be delivering in Australia in August. During my preparation I realised that the logic for displaying associated views in Unified Service Desk was different between the Classic web interface of Dynamics 365 and the newer Unified Interface. In this post I will document how to display an associated view using USD and the Unified Interface. (As I noticed several forum posts with people asking how to achieve this.)

USD – Browser Choice

All browsers are pretty much the same thing, right??? The actual answer to this question is a resounding no! When working with Microsoft’s Unified Service Desk (USD) selecting the “correct” browser for your hosting type can make the difference between a solution that’s fit for purpose and one that is slow and unreliable.

USD – Actions when I need them!

In Unified Service Desk I often only want to run actions when a particular tab is open. The problem is users are unpredictable things and they may have closed the tab without me knowing or maybe they never opened it. I could just run all the actions regardless and ignore any errors. But I don’t like doing that and it isn’t an efficient way of designing a solution. So, what so we do?

USD – Search (with UCI)

Recently I have started to work with the new feature with have in Unified Service Desk 3.3 that supports Microsoft’s Unified Client Interface (UCI). As I find differences or tips I will create short blog posts. In this post I will cover how the category or relevance search is loaded in UCI.

USD – Unified Client Interface

With the release of version 3.3 of Unified Service Desk we now have support for the Unified Client Interface (UCI). I have started to experiment with this! In this post I will try to give you an overview of some of the key points I have found which you might want to be aware of.

USD – UCI and RunXrmCommand

Version 3.3 of Unified Service Desk (USD) has introduced a new hosted control component type of “Unified Interface Page”, which supports the new Unified Client Interface (UCI). These have several differences to the “CRM Page” hosted controls we have traditionally used with the standard web client. In this post I will explore just one of these differences, RunXrmCommands.
