Today we will know simple but important thing.

By default Dynamics CRM allows users to place max 6 widgets (controls / Views / Charts/ Lists) in the dashboards. But there is a possibility to extend the count to more. But that can’t be performed by using simple out of the box settings.

We can extend the count to more by using the PowerShell script.

Open the Windows Power Shell on CRM Server

Add the Microsoft Dynamics CRM PowerShell snap-in using below command

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Crm.PowerShell

You may get the message saying something like “Add-PSSnapin : Cannot add Windows PowerShell snap-in Microsoft.Crm.PowerShell because it is already added.”  no problem,  you can continue.

Run the following 3 commands

$setting = Get-CrmSetting -SettingType DashboardSettings
$setting.MaximumControlsLimit = 9 (// you can change this number)
Set-CrmSetting -Setting $setting

Hope this helps!:)
