Doesn't work for Outlook views


I have just re-tested with your latest release. If you change a view using this tool and publish, the view is changed in IE but NOT in Outlook. If you look at the view in Customizations in Dynamics CRM, the view seems to be changed but for some reason the change does not work in Outlook. You must make some change to the view again in Customizations inside Dynamics CRM and save/publish. This change can be anything -sort order, remove and then add field. This is true for custom and out-of-box entities. I have tried deleting the Outlook configuration and adding it again as well as not configuring the Outlook client until after the views have been changed. None of this helped.. changes made to the views using this utility do not work in Outlook.

I will check this but the program just updates the view and publishes the entity...

I guess there is something that is done when using the UI that is not applied automatically when using the SDK... need to figure out what it is...

Yes, I had a look at the code and it looks straight forward. Perhaps something to be raised with Microsoft? This tool would be invaluable but for this one issue!

We experienced the same problem. I found out that the code only copies the layoutXML cells but not the attributes in the fetchXML.

The Webclient doesn't matter if the layoutXML has attributes which aren't in the layoutXML but Outlook on the other hand just ignores those columns in the view.

I've attached the updated ViewHelper.cs (Just a hack, not 100% optimized)
