Hide Timeline on Mobile Client on Dynamics 365

Hi, 

As we all know that Timeline is a new control introduced from Version 9.x of Dynamics 365. It is a section on Web UI but on the Mobile it appears as a Tab.

Sometimes as per Business requirement we might have to show and hide the timeline. On the web, it is easy to do as it is a section and the same appears as a Tab on Mobile client and show/hide code written for the section doesn’t work here. Technically, it is a tab on the mobile. Here is the code that works on the Mobile. We just need to get the timeline tab name to do this.

        var tabObj = formContext.ui.tabs.get(“TIMELINEWALL_TAB_SYSTEM_GENERATED”);
        tabObj.setVisible(false);


So we have to show/hide section for Web UI and tab for mobile client.

Hope this helps.

Debug CRM for Mobiles/Tablets from a PC browser

Hi, 

Recently, I have started working on Dynamics 365 Mobile App. We have found that Scripts that works in browser on a PC is not working on the Mobile and giving error messages. This is really frustrating as we don’t have debugging facility on the Mobile App..

After some search, I came to know that we can open CRM for Tablets user interaface in a Web Browser. Here is the URL for it.

Before using the URL, make sure that you login to CRM using required credentials and in another table enter the following.

https://orgname.crm.dynamics.com/nga/main.htm?org=orgname&server=https://orgname.crm.dynamics.com

Replace “orgname” with your CRM organization name. That’s it when you hit the URL in browser, you will see the screen which is shown on mobile and once it is done with configuring use your browser’s developer tools to debug.


Hope this helps.
