CRM 2016 Phone Calls: The Mystery Error Message

Printer-friendly version

As of CRM 2016 Update 0.1, both online and on-premise, the Phone Call can display a blank error message box at the top of the form in certain cases. To reproduce this behavior, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new Contact.
  2. Set “Phone” to “Do Not Allow” and save the record.
  3. Go to Activities and create a Phone Call for the new Contact.
  4. Upon saving, you will see an error at the top of the form:

Follow these same steps in CRM 2015, though, and you’ll see that it’s supposed to be displaying the “At least one recipient is marked as ‘Do Not Allow’ phone” message:

So, if you’re in the midst of testing your recent upgrade to CRM 2016 and you see that blank error on the Phone Call, don’t worry that your customizations have somehow broken: it’s a bug that’s reproducible in an un-customized environment. Hopefully, this will be addressed in the soon-to-be-released Spring 2016 update, since it has been present since the initial release of CRM 2016.
