CRM 2015 – Advanced Find in Global Navigation Bar – It’s Here!

Wooohooo yipppie! Can you tell I’m excited about this?  I wrote a blog post while back in June/July of 2014 titled ‘Microsoft Dynamics CRM – Advanced Find in Global Nav –Wouldn’t that be nice?’. Also another blog post here. At the same time I put a request into Microsoft Connect asking for the Advanced Find to be promoted to the Global Navigation bar in Microsoft Dynamics CRM. It got quite a few votes, which I thank all those who did vote for it.

One of my colleagues at Magnetism Solutions, Paul Nieuwelaar, decided that he liked this idea and would build a add-on for CRM to do this while we waited on the outcome of my Microsoft Connect request. You can read Paul’s blog post here as well as taking a look at the source code on CodePlex for the add-on here

Well, Microsoft has listened. Advanced Find will be available with the Global Navigation bar in CRM 2015 when it drops with the Fall Release. This is great news. It is also evidence that Microsoft does listen to your requests, so it’s always important to pass on your feedback and feature requests to Microsoft.

Notice the new icon …


Once clicked you will see the Advanced Find window appear.


That’s better right?

    It would have been better to make it always visible in the tool bar, where it normally appears and where it belongs, rather than the navigation bar, since it has nothing to do with navigation. The problem wasn’t the location. The tool bar was a fine location. The problem was that it sometimes didn’t appear. Simply making it always appear in the tool bar would have been the proper correction.
