Expanding Field Label Widths in CRM 2015

Post Author: Joe D365 |

Have you ever designed and published a form in CRM only to find that portions of the attribute labels are partially hidden or cut off as in the image below? Well, in today's blog, we will show you how to fix that! Let's get started!

Field Label Widths

1. First, from within the record, open the Form Editor as shown here:

Field Label Widths

2. Open the section where the partially-hidden field labels reside. Be sure to open the correct section, and not an attribute.

3. Next, adjust the Field Label Width to a higher number. The more words in the field label, the higher number of pixels you should enter. Click OK.

4. To check if the width has been expanded far enough, preview the form by clicking here:

Field Label Widths

5. You can see from this preview that 120 pixels is a sufficient Field Label Width for these attribute labels. All of the field labels are visible.

Note: You may need to exit this preview screen and repeat steps 2, 3, and 4, increasing the number of pixels as in step 3 until you get the width just right.

  1. if you have sections next to each other you don't want to increase the label width to much, or the fields may overlap each other when you have a user with a small screen, as the label widths are non-responsive

  2. Hi Joe, I'm using on prem CRM 2016 and there is no Field Label Width option in the Section Properties. Same thing when I looked at CRM 2015. Any idea why? Thanks
    Solved, I was looking at the Tab properties and not the Section.
