Using Quick View Form in MS CRM 2013

Today we are going to discuss another new form added in MS CRM 2013 called “Quick View Forms”. This form was initially introduced in Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Fall 13 Service Update. Quick view forms are associated with lookup control, for example if you want to see the details of the record filled in lookup control you can open by clicking on it, but if you are interested in only key information and don’t want to open complete record, you can utilize quick view form. We can create quick view form by following below steps, In our example we have created one policy entity and have policy number lookup in contact entity, so let’s create quick view form for our policy entity:

  • Navigate to Components->Entities->Policy->New->Quick View Form from your solution.
  • Add key information, drag and drop required fields.
  • Click on and Save and Close.
  • Publish your changes.



  • We have only one Tab in Quick view form.
  • We can add many sections in Quick view form.
  • We can also add subgrid in Quick view form.
