We are using Business Units in our D365 CE environment. I added to the Account creation form a field for "Business Unit". I would like to be able to default the "Business Unit" field on the Account to the Business Unit associated with the logged in user when a record is created. Any guidance on how best to accomplish this would be appreciated.
Here's what you can do.
I'm assuming you have a lookup to the Business Unit entity created on the Account record, in that case, you can create the following workflow on Create of the Account with the following steps -
1. Create a Real-time workflow (even a Background workflow would do) that has only 1 Update step for the Account which you are creating. Make sure the scope is set to the One Who Makes Changes to the record.
2. In the Update Steps, set the Lookup to the related Created By's Business Unit lookup as shown below
So, whenever you or anyone creates a record, their Business Unit will be populated in the lookup -
Hope this helps!
You could also use JS code to do this.
We just need to get the current login user first and set his Business unit to the field, here is the sample code.
Please add this js to webresource and add the "setBusinessUnit" function to Onload event in Account form.
And here is the result, when I opening Account form, the "Business Unit" field will be set value of the current user's Business Unit.
Hope it helps.
