Widget Properties

Basic Properties

Querystring

The Querystring textfield looks for the specified parameter in the URL string. For example, if our link happened to be: 

http://forum.com?forumName=Technology 

and our Querystring was forumName, the value that would be read into the CRM Querystring widget would be Technology. 

The value 'Technology' will then be saved into the selected Attribute.

Attribute

The Attribute drop down list will allow you to change the data field that this widget will save the user’s input to (For example, a CRM Text Field with an Attribute of Account Name will save its input to the Account Name data field).

AlwaysSubmit

By default this widget will not submit unless there are other dirty fields submitting on the form. This property ensures the widget always submits it's data to Dynamics CRM

Advanced Properties

Advanced properties provide additional functionality. They can be accessed by clicking on the "Advanced" Button in the bottom right corner of the widget designer.
