  • That is correct, Announcements (BusinessUnitNewsArticle) entity cannot be customized. Refer http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg309574.aspx

    Announcements is not a well accepted feature in CRM. In the earlier versions of CRM, Users didn't visit that page (in workplace) and the purpose wasn't met. You could choose using the "Wall" instead.

  • Thank you very much for you help . But is it possible to create a solution which uses  announcements and access the entity attributes from the webresource (because as written in MS documentation that it's permitted to read createdby attribute( ?

  • Yes Retrieve is supported so you should be able to do that ... Refer http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg334232%28v=crm.6%29.aspx
