Is it possible to display the 'Total # of Contacts' on the bottom of the page, rather than 1 of 250 (per page) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using on-premise - CRM v4.0 Web version.


    I'd like to see the Total # of contacts on the Contacts page.





    Page is set to view 250 at once.


    1 of 250  of   8,000 in total.


    Has anyone seen this or know how to build it? Thanks!

  • MS doesn’t supply the total because the number of rows returned depends on the current user role access rights, hence 8000 might not be the correct number.

    Moreover, you need to consider the current view which makes things complicated.

    You should condifer impersonating a user that has full organization level read rights to make the call onbehalf of the current user as well.


    If you already considered that then the way to get this done is by injecting

    js code inside global.js, identifying the contacts page / crmGrid and making the call (unsupported).

    or wrap the contacts grid with your own aspx page and load the contacts page in an iframe.

    The returned value can be set using DOM manipulation.

  • yes this is possible but with a custom and unsupported solution. did this for a customer but i do not recommend it at all, unless it is unavoidable.
