Security configuration repair

First of all, I would like to wish you all the best, luck, and health for the new year. Yesterday, I published a blog explaining the Synchronize all button on the Security configuration form. Directly in the new year, there is a kind of related blog. The relation between these two blogs is that it is not clearly documented what exactly these buttons are about. When you click one of these two buttons in a normal running environment, you will see a message “Please wait. We’re processing your request.” for a few seconds and you don’t see anything changing at first sight.

Security configuration synchronize all

It’s the end of the year 2021 and I would like to add one final post for this year. Together with this blog, I’m also preparing my first blog for 2022.

Personalization is one of the key features to be able to tweak the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations to the preferences of individual users. It will even help them to be more productive. Some personal options, like the language and date, time and number format can be managed on the User options page. This is also the page from where Usage data can be cleared. Quite often, some predefined values need to be controlled by a system administrator. Or in case of certain issues, an administrator would need to review and reset certain usage data. How can an administrator access these details? This question will be answered in this post.
