Microsoft Dynamics 365 allows for extensive customization, including the addition of custom buttons to the command bar. In this tutorial, we will walk through the process of inserting a custom button onto the main form of the Accounts entity. We'll use Power FX in the formula bar to demonstrate a simple operation.
