What are Custom Pages?
Microsoft has announced the public preview of Custom Pages which was demonstrated at Microsoft Business Applications Summit.
A custom page can be used in places such as main area, dialogs, and the new app side pane. This allows scenarios like a pixel perfect landing page with data pulled from across the organization, data driven pages that use a record’s data to change the experience, dialog designed to optimize specific business actions, and productivity tools that support the main tasks for the app.
The custom pages can be opened from the sitemap (New Preview) for easy access or can be opened from existing model-driven app logic using the Client API. Also the custom pages can open other custom pages or model pages.
