How to have an address field like Account and Contact entities RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have added a new entity to my Solution in Dynamics Online 2016 Update 1 which is used to log the details of a physical computer (named System). This entity needs to have an address associated which may not be the same as the linked Account and Contact records.

    How do I include an address field(s) in the same way that the Account and Contact entities do, that has a multiple line input field which pops out to multiple single line fields when clicked and links to a Bing maps location beneath it?

    If this is not possible (and I really hope it is) then what is best practice for associating street addresses with custom entities?

  • Address composite fields are allowed only on few System entities. There is no support for Custom entities.

    There is a work around to achieve it. Create a custom control using HTML and Java Script and by using IFrame display it in the form.
