For each Dynamics 365 app, a sitemap controls which entities and other items are displayed to end users.
A new designer is now available creating a better experience with new controls to precisely manage the layout of these items.
Each Dynamics environment comes with a default site map.
To customise this, a new sitemap designer is managed in PowerApps Site Designer with drag and drop controls to easily change the layout.
The three core components in each sitemap are:
- Areas - such as Sales, Project, ClickDimensions, etc
- Group - containing all the subareas shown within an area
- Subarea - links to views and entities such as dashboards, leads, cases and activities
Clicking the properties tab from any item that has been dropped onto the designer canvas enables customizations to be applied.
For example, for an area apply an icon that will appear while subareas can be configured to reference an entity, URL, dashboard or web resource.
