    I have CRM365 ,  Version
    Developed "Dialog" as a process (on case entity) and it was working fine in classic interface.
    I switched to new Unified 
    Interface, and now can't see "Start Dialog" at all .
    Any help will be appreciated

    Hello Mohamad,

    I have not tried Dialog in the new UI interface. Yet Microsoft want to deprecate them so it's not a surprise that it's not as easy to find them sadly.

    For workflows, the "Run workflow" button has been moved in the "Flows" button. Maybe the "Start Dialog" has been moved there too?

    Best regards,

    The reason, because Dialogs are now depreciated in version 9 itself. While you are on new version, the capability is removed from new UI.

    Dialogs are deprecated and are not supported in the new UI.

    There a few different techniques to replace them.  Here is my blog on how I used embedded canvas apps;

     Note that in the comments of this post, someone did share a JavaScript snippet that supposedly will launch a dialog from the new UI, but I haven't tried it.
