Inline Editing helps user by allowing to edit any element from within that web page itself. With the release of Dynamics 365 v9.0, some new Enhancements are also added for Site map i.e inline editing for sitemap components.
In this blog, we will discuss about Inline Editing for Sitemap Components in Dynamics 365 v9.0
Earlier, there was no option to edit the components inline as you can see below.
To edit the components in V8.0, we use to Navigate to Settings -> Customization -> Customize the System.
Then Under the Components of the Default solution, select Click Extensions and select Sitemap and open it. By selecting the Area for editing the below Properties section opens to edit the name of that Area as shown in the below screenshot.
Similarly, it can be done for Group and SubArea.
