    Hello,

    Recently after several Microsoft updates were pushed out, we have noticed that a list of entity views have been removed from our Dynamics 365 CRM with no definitive answer explaining why they were deleted. If anyone has had any recent experience with this error, any feedback provided is appreciated.

    Have you checked these two things:
    • Have the views become inactive?
      To check this, go into the default solution and look in the inactive public views list.
    • Are the views still in the App?
      To check this, open your app in the app designer and look in the list of views that are unselected in the relevant entity

    Aplos if you have already done this but both have caught me out in the past.

    Hello Donal,

    We have checked to see if they were merely inactive, but the views were completely removed from the environments so we had to go into the single environment where the views were still active, add them to a solution, export and re-import the views into the other environments from that solution. It is believed that a Microsoft update removed the views from the environments but this has happened three times now.
