  • You can do this using a a Pre-Create plugin on Account. You can check if the phone number is entered by the user; if not, then you could set the default value.

  • Hi,

    In addition to plugin you can also write a simple JS code if you always want to set phone number to default and call in onload of the form

  • Hi,

    I assume you want this for CRM 4.0.

    You can use the below JavaScript. You can call your JavaScript function On load of the form while creating new record.

    if(crmForm.FormType == 1)
      crmForm.all.description.DataValue =7890;

  • Hi Adeel,

    What do you mean by Current Entity value?

    You can read the target property as given below.

    if (context.InputParameters.Properties.Contains("Target") &&
          context.InputParameters.Properties["Target"] is DynamicEntity)
          entity = (DynamicEntity)context.InputParameters.Properties["Target"];


    You will get the fields those were populated while creating record in the entity (Target).

    You can read the fields value from entity object .
