A fantastic Chrome addin if you are using D365FO

On of my primary tasks at work every day is maintaining multiple Dynamics 365 for Operations environments for my customer. This means that I often juggle a couple of environments at the same time and often I have to double check the URL to make sure I am in the right place.

There is of course the possibility to set different banners on each environment to be able to differentiate between them.

Today I found a wonderful tool that can help me, a chrome addin that puts a border at the edge of the window, in different color, depending on the URL 🙂

You configure the addin with different keywords which triggers the color switch The keywords can be URLs:

Or you can for instance use name of the legal entity:

Note that the keyword is Case sensitive. The result looks like this:

Since the addin doesn’t car what you are running in the browser you can use it to differentiate between other similar sites as well… as long as the URL differs in a consistent way.

If you are running the new Microsoft Edge (nased on Chromium… It works there as well 🙂
