How to Manage Microsoft Dynamics 365 Quick Create Forms

Quick Create forms within Microsoft Dynamics can be a good way to create new records (like activities, leads, accounts, cases, etc.) on the fly. Because only “bare-bones” data is entered, it is usually a good idea to plan to return to the newly created record soon and add more detail.

On the other hand, organizational requirements may dictate that new records are created with more comprehensive data on the first go-around. In these cases, the System Administrator may elect to disable Quick Create forms. (Note – this can be done on an individual entity basis.)

Here is how to do it:

In this example, we will first see how to use the Quick Create form for creating a new Account record. Then, we will see how the Account Quick Create form option can be disabled. (Note: all users are affected by this.)
