Hide Setting button in CRM 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I have a requirement where the user should not be able to change his time zone. 

    Is there any way where i can hide the button(snapshot below) from users

    using security role or remove it completely.

    If its possible, which time zone it defaults to?

    Any help on this is much appreciated.

  • Hi,

        You can reduce the rights for all the users to have read on "User Settings" entity under Business Management tab in security role. but do not give them write and create rights. It is not a good idea to hide the button as users should always be able to see these settings. Users take the organisation timezone which is set up at the time of setting up the organisation.

    Hope this helps.

  • Taking it further, you could write a plugin on the Update message of the UserSettings entity that would stop a user changing the timezone attributes (there are several). Unfortunately, though, this message is not available by default, and you would need to make an unsupported change (only possible in Crm OnPremise) to enable the Update message of the UserSettings entity
