    I tried to add new custom ribbon button in Account entity (system default entity) which I had customized as per business requirement. I would like to add “New Application” button on the form, I don’t know why it is not working. I does not display anymore. I have used workbench 2013 for dynamic crm 2013. Anybody can help me in this point?
