Hey Busy CRM expertise need your thoughts on CRM BPF RRS feed

  • Question

  • 1) How to enable collapse of business process bar in CRM ?

    2) Performance of custom entity with all the subgrids. Do all these fetches get performed if hidden?  Consider a scenario where an custom entity has five sub-grid  & these  five sub grid entity is hidden initially and will be there a performance difference on entity if we choose to display all sub grid ?

  • for question 2, in my opinion if you hidden those subgrids, it will not be performed when Form is initing. This situation as same as put those subgrid into a tab and set its default collapse option to false.

    2) If the tab with the subgrids is collapsed, then the data on those sub grids will not get fetched while form loads. Performance will be better when CRM doesn't have to load data on these subgrids especially when there are tons of data to be loaded on those subgrids. The user can have better user experience if you expand only those tabs and subgrids which are really important for the users to see at a glance and collapse all the tabs where the users can do extra click to see the data.

  • CRM 2013 loads subgrids asynchronously, so there is no performance hit that the user will see either way.

  • @Paul - you make a good point that the user will get access to start using the form without waiting for the subgrids because of asynchronous loading, but putting the sub-grids in a collapsed tab if they are rarely needed is still a performance benefit - to the CRM server, the SQL server, and the network.

    Hope this helps.
