Dynamics 365 Power Pane:

When working with a big form (as a developer) in CRM you might have the following tasks to do.

  1. Enable and enter data for a locked field for testing purposes
  2. Copy GUID for a record
  3. Copy URL of record
  4. View schema name of attributes in form
  5. View option set value for all option set fields
  6. Show all hidden fields
  7. ...

By default, you need to change the config of the form to show hidden fields or unlock a field. And you have to go to System Customization to check the field schema name or option set value.

The developer tool Dynamics 365 Power Pane will help you with all above tasks without changing any customizations
