  • 1.  How do I mass change the default home screen back after upgrade

    I finally got all my bugs worked through with my test upgrade from 18.0 to 18.3 (latest).  Now when I log in, I get this really obnoxious Microsoft Marketing screen.  You can go into preferences and switch it back to the "default" - meaning the user's home screen, their links, etc.  Is there any way to do this from the backend?  Nobody at my company wants to see that [bovine excrement] on their home page in the first place and I really don't want to have to have all my users change it individually as I know its going to end up giving me dozens of support calls even if I send them step-by-step instructions.

    If you're listening, Microsoft.  THIS WAS A REALLY BAD IDEA.

    If you mean the Dynamics 365 Business Central Insights, go to DYNAMICS SY08100 and set VISIBLE = 0 where SECTIONID = 2. SELECTED is OK at 1. Then also make sure where SECTIONID = 1, SELECTED = 1 and VISIBLE = 1.
    We got so annoyed at CONNECT showing up a few versions ago that we put an I/U trigger on that table that sets VISIBLE = 0 where SECTIONID = 6 and now recently we had to do the same with SECTIONID = 2.
    This is not me posting and I did not tell you how to do this.... :)
    Merry Christmas

    That's great.  Is there a list of what the various Section ID's is?  IE what is Section 6?

    @Blair Christensen

    GP Power Tools has the ability to repurpose both the MS Connect web part and the Intelligent Cloud Insights tab to use another website of your choosing. (without needing Dex.ini or Modifier changes).

    It can also completely hide/disable Intelligent Cloud Insights if desired. It also sets the default for new users to not show Intelligent Cloud Insights and stops it being shown when changes are made to the homepage settings.

    It also has a button to reset all users to their homepages.

    Finally, in 18.4 Intelligent Cloud Insights has been removed. So if you used GP Power Tools to re-purpose it, that is also removed for build 28. The upcoming build 29 release will add back your re-purposed website if you were using it.​

    Thanks!  I've used AzureCurve for the table definitions but I didn't know they had a blog.

    PS - say high to Steve for me!

    That's a good link. The new "feature" if  I can be so brave as to call it that, is Dynamics 365 Business Central Insights = SECTIONID 2.  CONNECT  = 6 was annoying but this.......ughhh...
