Do you need to create a global or single option set but do not want to type all the items in manually? Would you like to be able to use a pre-existing source from the Internet or from a down-loadable library rather than create it yourself? If so you are in luck!
I am pleased to be able to announce the CRM Option Set Utility & Community Site which is co-sponsored by MVPs Tanguy Touzard and Jerry Weinstock. We have collaborated to create a site where you can download the utility (written by Tanguy, idea by Jerry) and then download pre-built option set source files from the community portion of the Site. I will be managing the overall site, the forums, & the community library where you can also contribute your own option sets to share with the greater CRM user base.
The site includes a forum for product support and discussions of all aspects of the use of option sets in Dynamics CRM 2011.
The utility will allow you to:
- Create Global Option or Standard Option Sets.
- Associate the Option Set with one or more entities in CRM.
- Set the default value and the starting value.
- Set other parameters like field level security.
The utility and the community option set library are 100% free.
