guys, i am coming from power App, power Automate background which i used heavily with SharePoint. I heard these tools can be used with D365 also. i heard there was a propriety language used to customize Dynamic On-Prem but with Dynamic 365 is that propriety language still used to customize it. My Team is pretty good with Power Platform and SPFx ( JavaScript framework for SharePoint).. Please list the diffent options, languages used to customized Dynamics 365. 

thanks in advance.

    Hi, 

    Dynamics 365 applications are model driven power apps.

    This kind of application is composed of view, form, dashboard and Business process Flow. When we have to customize this type of application, we have to customize the components that I just listed ... The customization can be done using the designer via make.power.com.

    If the standard does not allow implementing certain scenarios, we have to use JavaScript code to extend the web client which is in this case the Model Driven App.

    Concerning the server side. Dynamics CRM is built on top of Dataverse. We can extend the server side by using Standard Workflows, creating/modifying tables...

    If the Standard does not allow the implementation of more complex scenarios, we have to use Custom Apis or plugins...
