7) Hide/Show System Views in Dynamics 365
By Beringer Technology Group
Dynamics 365 is known for its plethora of components and subcomponents, including entities, forms, views, charts, fields, and much more.  Many of these components have had their administration functionality altered, or have had their names changed altogether (e.g., "entities" are now "tables"; "fields" are now "columns"), with the introduction of the Power Platform.  Views are no exception to this, and in the case of administration functionality, system administrators and customizers have the ability to control a view's visibility to end-users without disabling it.  Before Power Apps, the only way to remove a system view from visibility in the classic Dynamics 365 experience was to disable it completely in the environment.
