CRM customisations version control (e.g. Check in / Check out ability)

Author Name: Ramon Tebar (MVP)

Dynamics 365 (CRM) allows multiple users to customise a solution component in parallel. The latest change wins. This brings a challenge on medium/big development teams, where multiple people customise the system at the same time.

It would be great to have some kind of version control within the platform, such as:

  • Ability to check out a component, customise it and then check in.
  • Conflict resolution. In case two people has modified the same component, it would highlight the conflict and allow the developer to choose the right version or even merge the changes.

At the very least, we need the same auditing capability that we have for the transactional data: to see all changes to a customization component, who made them, and when. Some kind of a visual comparison tool for forms would also be nice. Then on top of that, allowing a cusotmizer to indicate that they are currently working on a component to prevent any concurrency issues as described above would certainly be the icing on the cake.
