Field Definitions in MS Dynamics CRM 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • The purpose and use of some field names in Dynamics 2013 are clear and some are not. Is there a good guide to things like Account Category Code vs Account Classification Code and their practical use? We are in the midst of mapping and would appreciate any guidance. Thank you!

  • You will be able to find the field definition in the 'Description' on the field customization. While any documentation on this subject is not available, the description field can give you a good start with the OOB fields.

    Account Category Code: Select a category to indicate whether the customer account is standard or preferred.

    Account Classification Code: Select a classification code to indicate the potential value of the customer account based on the projected return on investment, cooperation level, sales cycle length or other criteria.

    The Metadata Document Generator tool can save you from opening each field's customization to get the field description.
