Dynamics CRM page load is slow and Optimize performance using Microsoft CRM Form Load Performance Analyzer

 

If you are facing performance issues on Dynamics CRM page load you can try the following Tips

  1. Use Microsoft CRM Form Load Performance Analyzer to find out what events are taking longer to load and optimise the form by working on the problematic events
  2. Remove unwanted fields from the form (clean out hidden fields). More fields adds to the heaviness of the form and degrades its performance
  3. Remove unused grids ( CRM sub grids as well as third party editable grids such as ableBridge Grids). The grids take longer to load and makes the page very slow
  4. If the Entity has many fields, try to break the entity down into small entities and spread the fields to other forms. This improves the page load dramatically as the page won’t have to load all of the controls at once
  5. Refactor the JavaScript files and remove unwanted code. Also minify the JavaScript resource while publishing
