Posted on by UG Leader

Dear All,

I have a user who put a lot of effort to customize user profile in configuration mode (not by dev env). Recently, I have added a new field to T36 and P42.

When I am opening P42, having this custom-configured user profie set, I cannot see newly added field. It is also not visible in Customize FastTab view. Restore defults does not work too.

When I switch do any other, not custom-confiured profile - I can see newly added field.

Any thoghts how to make newly added field visible in already configured provile, without configurint it again, from scratch?

    You have to redo everything from scratch. 

    This is because the old legacy xml delta file for windows client is changed and invalidated and you have hanging links in there. 

    When you will move to Dynamics 365 Business Central, just FYI, you have to flush everything of what you do now in configuration mode and redo everything from scratch. 

    BUT there are more powerful tools to perform these task in the Web Client since 2020 Wave 1. This would really be a great value of upgrading.
