How to Use the Entity Image Attribute to Create an Entity in “Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM Image Field”

Frequently, Dynamics 365 image field users require an image be assigned to a record – whether it’s pictures of contacts, logos for accounts, photos of venues, or any of the many other possible applications.  Some OOB entities come with this feature enabled, but what about for other entities or custom entities? This guide will show you how to achieve this result:

 

  1. Start by navigating to Customizations> Customize the System > Entities > “Custom Entity” > Fields > New

 

 

entity

 

 

  1. Name the field (Image Field above) and select Image for the Data Type. The Schema of the field should automatically change to entity image dynamics 365. Save and Close.

 

 

  1. Navigate to the Custom Entity’s Entity Definition in the Default Solution. In the “Primary Image” property, you should now see the entity image dynamics 365 selected – if not, select it from the drop down.

  1. Now, make the necessary changes to the Custom entity image dynamics 365 main form. Go to Default Solution > “Custom Entity” > Forms > Main Form > Form Properties > Display and check the box for “Show image in the form”. Click OK, then Save and Publish.
