{Code tip} Open entity form with set values for multi select option set in Dynamics 365

Dynamics 365 has introduced multi select option set field. In one of the recent requirements, it was needed to open a form with pre-set values for multi select option set field.

Following steps are required:

1. For example, Contact entity has a Multi select option set field called Category which has values as following:

Label Integer Value
A 1
B 2
C 3
D 4

2. Following URL can be triggered to open the contact entity form with set values for Category field with A,C and D:

/main.aspx?etn=contact&extraqs=dyn_category%3D%5B1%2C3%2C4%5D&pagetype=entityrecord

 

3. The dynamically generated URL can then be opened using window.open method to open CRM contact form with pre-set values for multi select field:
