  • Guys, 

         Got the solution we need to use the following update queries, we need to update 2 entities:

    UPDATE entity SET iscustomizable = 1 --0 WHERE name LIKE 'QueueItem'

    UPDATE attribute SET displaymask = 335544320 --67108864: Hidden, 335544320: Exposed WHERE entityid = (SELECT entityid FROM entity WHERE name = 'QueueItem') AND name = 'sender'

  • Hi,

  • I want the attribute "sender" which is found in queueitem entity to be displayed in views, I am not getting that attribute when I try adding new columns to any existing view.

  • Updating the database is not supported so chances are it'll break as soon you would like to migrate to CRM 2011.
