calculated field implementation in crm 2011? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I'd like to implement a calculated field but based on some initial googling, CRM doesn't appear to support calculated fields OTB:

    https://community.dynamics.com/crm/f/117/t/73614.aspx

    Specifically, I need a new field to support a new view: "Older Than X Days".  The new field is named "DaysOld."

    One approach would be to implement a nightly job (w/f) that updates this field based on the current DateTime. However, this approach means that it could take up to 8 days for DaysOld to get updated, and consequently get displayed in the view.

    It seems like another approach could be to calculate this value dynamically through a Retrieve plugin, although I haven't used this approach before, and it seems like this could impact performance.  What approach would you take in this scenario?
