CRM2013: Allow Composite Fields to be Customized

Author Name: PETER MAJER

CRM 2013 introduces a great feature of Composite Fields (e.g., Full Name, Address). However, the fields that appear in this composite field are hard coded and not editable.

It would be ideal if system customizers could edit these composite fields similarly to how they edit other forms within customizations.

Status: Planned

Thank you for your feedback. This is a great suggestion! We will consider this in our roadmap.

Agree. Right now there are some fields that are often used differently then they are programmed now, especially in different countries where names or addresses are formatted differently. Right now we don't use the new function as it just creates more confusion and inability to use CRM correctly and this is a shame because the idea behind it is really good.

Would be awesome to at least be able to use this address flyout as a part of another entity with address. Ideally, would be great to create a composite field from any other fields ... Thanks

Thank you for your suggestion. We are considering this functionality for a future release of CRM. Mike Carter This posting is provided "as is" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

We love the new address display in CRM 2013, but we cannot use it since we want to restrict address formats, specifically use a lookup for the country . Please MS, don't make us choose between a great new feature and data quality!
Administrator
Or even more, provide Country, Province, State etc fields as Lookup by default, as 90% of customers want to have possibility to select state from a list f.e.

Just removed an address composite AGAIN. Needs to allow us to remove/hide irrelevant fields and non-United States labels.

Also, what does resolved mean? I don't see this functionality in CRM.

I am in full agreement with this, our problem with the current composite address is that. Proper Mail certification with the address, is the the USPS requires us to properly format an address. the USPS reads addresses from the bottom up, and as you go up an address block, you get more granular to the reciever's location. Properly formatted addresses are shown in revers order for the streets: , Our address validation softwarre always validates Street 1 because Street 2 or 3 might include something like a "c/o organization" or Department Name. in a proper address block, these cannot be below a street address.

To the previous comment, it's showing as "Resolved as Tracking", which apparently means "The product team is continuing to track this item". This, of course, is not a resolution, and so that's an incredibly misleading status. I *really* wish MS would stop using Resolved in this case, and only use it for things that are actually resolved. Anyway, chiming in to agree that this is important primarily for the Address/Country lookup issue given previously, but would also like to see it in general. And the fact we have to go through so many hoops to have normalized country data is its own issue...
