Several-out-of-the-box entities in Dynamics CRM (including Case, Lead, and Opportunity) contain a field that represents a customer, which can either be an Account or a Contact. In CRM, these fields have the Customer data type, which is a special kind of lookup field for these two specific entities. Previously, system customizers couldn’t add a Customer field to their own entities. As part of this feature, Customer is available as a custom field data type that can be added to any entity, system or custom.
One of our MVP’s Shan McArthur, now with Microsoft leading the the Microsoft ADX Portal development as been fighting for this feature for a long time. In memory of that fight, we will refer to these field type as a “ShanMC Field.”. Thanks for your support throughout the years Shan!
Microsoft has announced the general availability of Dynamics CRM 2016 Spring Wave. You can see the preview

Over the last few weeks my colleagues and fellow MVP’s have been working on a few CRM 2016 systems. Our general thought is that a lot of this code is from the CRM Online 2015 code base, and should really be production ready. However, the Microsoft CRM team has been hard at work delivering new features, so looks like we introduced a few bugs.
I’m going to recommend that you wait for update rollup 1 before deploying to your production system. There’s still plenty of time to test and install in your dev and test systems as you wait for these fixes. Here’s the main areas:
- Overall Outlook 2016 Client Configuration and Usage Issues – Support Recommended to stay with 2015 client
- New Form Rending Engine slowing overall form performance – fix in the works for update roll up 1
- Tweaks to the 2016 Solution Engine, breaking some backwards capability while importing solutions – fix in the works for update roll up 1
- Mobile Client performance issues
So we will re-test about the update roll-up 1 and provide future recommendations when we feel this is ready for production. Remember that there are some best practices and one is two wait until the first update roll-up is available. Stay tuned.
I’m pleased to announce that Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 has been released. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 will be available in the Microsoft download center on December 15, 2016. Thank you to Jujhar and the entire CRM team for putting extra hours to make this release so special.
