Time field in CRM 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to display just time in my CRM form , found three approach. Not  able to  identify which is the best one.

    1) Create a text field time , user can input time .On change of this field or on save crm will vallidate format and alert if it's wrong format with  example of right format  and then save or cancel save . If everything is correct then make the field read only.

    2) Create 3 pick-list for hour , minute , am/pm and save accordingly.

    3) Create html  page and create time field there . Add html to CRM iframe.

    Please suggest which is the best approach.

  • It really depends on how much code you want to write and how picky the end users are. Option 1 likely involves a lot of code to validate the input and users probably won't like having to type in a time. Option2 works but it is 3 clicks for the end user. Option 3 would allow you to create a custom time pickers control but it is probably more work that option 2. Id shoot for option 3 and create a time picker if you can spend the time on it.
