I am trying to create contact from outlook and set parent for the same but i am getting error "An Unknown error occurred while synchronizing data to Outlook" while saving the record. Please see below screen shot.
Did you already activate tracing for the Outlook Client and tried to reproduce that error, to get more details? Without any details, it'll be hard to locate the error.
Thank you thomas for your reply. I tried to reproduce the error and i was able to reproduce it, i think this is due to duplicate record that already exist in crm. In my case contact name with "Virat kholi" already exists in my crm contact list. But the problem is with the error message that is not giving exact what is the error.
Did you activate tracing. Any error showing up in the trace?
I have activated tracing but no error log there.
What version of CRM you are working with?
I am using Dynamic 365 online (8.2 version).
If this error message was displayed, a trace log would be created. You say that you enabled tracing, but do you mean you enabled it on the server? Because Outlook has its own tracing for tracking down client errors. This link will provide more details (content copied here because MS likes to break links).https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2862031/how-to-enable-tracing-for-the-microsoft-dynamics-crm-for-outlook-clien
