design Model Driven App : Entity and Entity View

Can someone clear how Entity and Entity View are to be used while designing the Model Driven App in the designer. Using Designer I add a parent entity to the Sitemap which I notice auto adds an Entity along with Entity View. When run the Model App I am able to navigate to the main parent Entity and also drill down from that form to the child entities(1:N) using their hyperlinks from Form. Was I supposed to add these child Entities  to the Model App Entity list/Entity View as well or is there a need to only add the main Entity that we use to navigate from in the App ?

I strongly suggest you add those as well to the entities section within your site map.

Thanks. I would like to add them but want to know if I need to add them as there are few limits on how many entities we can add in certain apps.


How strange we are supposed to start using Model Driven Apps from October this year for crm online and yet there is so little basic information available for developers out here .
