CRM 2013 online space between sections RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    As I want to make the tab order of address horizontal (Flat > Floor > Block > Building Name > ..... > District). 

    I created four sections to hold four lines.  However, I found there is large spacing between sections and make the layout not too good.  

    Is there any resolution?  Thanks.

  • Hi Gary,

    a better approach would be to add a tab with 4cols and add a single section with 4 col.

    empty section headers are taking that space.

  • Hi Jithesh,

    Thanks for your advise.  

    However, I would like to keep existing field order, that is 

    Flat  ________________      Floor       ________________           

    Block ________________     Building  ________________           

    Street  ________________  Estate    ________________           

    Area   ________________    District   ________________           

    And I want to tab order will be 

    Flat  _______1_________      Floor       ________2________           

    Block ______3__________     Building  ________4________           

    Street  _____5___________  Estate    _______6_________           

    Area   _____7___________    District   _______8_________           

    Actually my form is working as this tab order now, but there is much space in between.

  • Hi Gary,

     Solution is still similar. Tabs and sections are very flexible. all you have to do is increase the number of columns in your section to hold two controls.

    something like the following pic.

  • Hi Jithesh,

    To make it more clear, I want the user to fill in the form according to this ordering:

    Flat  _______1_________      Floor       ________2________            

    Block ______3__________     Building  ________4________           

    Street  _____5___________  Estate    _______6_________           

    Area   _____7___________    District   _______8_________ 

    However, in MSCRM, the field order is first column vertical and then second column vertical WITHIN A SECTION.  Please advise.  Thanks.

  • Hi Gary,

    Sorry, if it is tab order is what you are looking for, please see the following thread.

    This may not work in case of CRM 2013, and sure will be unsupported script.
