Dynamics CRM 2013 Duplicated GUID of the merged form

We have recently upgraded our client deployment Dynamics CRM 2013 from 2011 and encountered an error while importing the solution due to the duplicated guid of label on some merged forms.

Following is the form merge step which causes this issue:

1)      Open the auto-generated CRM 2013 form

CRM Auto-generated form

CRM Auto-generated form

2)     Click merge button

Dynamics CRM Merge Button

Dynamics CRM Merge Button

3)     Remove the duplicated fields and adjust the layout

4)     Click Save As button and enter the new form name.

5)     Disable old 2011 form and the auto-generated 2013 form

The problem is the duplicated guid of label is created after saving the new form. To avoid this issue, we merged the new form by below steps:

1)      Open the auto-generated CRM 2013 form

2)     Click ‘Save As’ button and enter the new form name. This must be done before clicking merge button.

3)     Click merge button

4)     Remove the duplicated fields and adjust the layout

5)     Disable old 2011 form and the auto-generated 2013 form

 

I hope you find it useful. As I learn more, I will continue to add more on upgrade experience with CRM 2013.
