- A toast or popup notification is an alert which you get at the bottom of the screen. For example, a toast notification occurs on the UI when we create an entity record using a quick create feature as shown below.
- In-order to enable the Toast / Popup Notification, navigate to the Dynamics 365 >> Gear settings >> Click on “Toast / Popup Notification Display Time” as shown below.
With the Toast / Popup Notification Display Time enabled, the toast / Popup notification pops up for several seconds and then disappears.
