Dynamics 365 – setSubmitMode in JavaScript

Leave a comment

In Dynamics 365, setSubmitMode allows you to define for a field whether it is saved to the database.

Note there are 3 options:

  • never
  • always
  • isdirty

We will set the field to “never”:

function OnLoad()) {

Enter a new account and enter a phone number:

Click Save. After saving, the screen will refresh and the field will show as blank, i.e. not saved:
