Second Ingredient: Charts

Customers logged into the portal always expect easy Interface and better visibility of their orders and its status.


Order Status

Shipment Status

Refund Status

Ticket Status

Scenario: I want to show consignments of a customer by consignment status.

Prerequisites: You must have the following available in your D365 instance-

  1. System View of your entity and its GUID
  2. Chart for your entity and its GUID

To get help on getting GUID of a chart and view, visit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customer-engagement/portals/add-chart

Step 1: After completing the above listed prerequisites, go to Navigation>>Portals>>Entity List as shown below:

Step 2: Add entity list of the desired entity to be shown as chart and make sure you have selected the correct System View

Step 3: Replace the following text with the correct GUIDs of view and chart

{% chart id:”Enter GUID of the Chart here” viewid:” Enter GUID of the View here” %}

Step 4: Login to the portal as an admin and click edit on the corresponding page. I am doing it for ‘My Consignments’

Step 5: Select the correct entity List and then click on ‘Language Content’ tab

Step 6: Paste the text from “Step 3” here under Language Content and then click save

All done, following is what your customers will see on login.

Hope you find this helpful.
