Basic Properties

CRM Relationship

The CRM Relationship dropdown list allows you to display the relationship between the entity defined in the CRM Form Configuration and the retrieved data. Relationships are formatted as [N:1], [1:N], [1:1], [N:N]. Many to one, one to many, one to one, and many to many respectively. For example, a CRM Sub-Grid View widget could display a list of orders for a particular customer. The relationship between these data fields would be [N:1]. A customer may have multiple orders, but an order cannot have multiple customers.

FetchXML

The FetchXML text area determines what sort of data a widget will be populated with. Clicking the Load Default Fetch option will populate the FetchXML area with a default fetch based on the CRM Entity chosen.  By clicking the Build button, we will be sent to another page in order to determine what the widget will look up. For more information on how to use the FetchXML function, please see the FetchXML Builder How-To.
