Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online


The information provided here is for versions of Dynamics 365 prior to Dynamics 365 (online), version 9.0. For the latest documentation, see Enable change tracking to control data synchronization.

Large Microsoft Dynamics 365 organizations that synchronize their data with external data sources can now enable entities for change tracking. You can export or retrieve a selected set of Dynamics 365 data, and then keep the external data warehouse in sync.

By selecting, or deselecting, change tracking for specific entities you can reduce the load on your server resources and save processing time when extracting Dynamics 365 data and synchronizing it to an external store. You can enable change tracking for both system and custom entities.

  1. Go to Customizations > Customize the System.

  2. Select an entity, and under Data Services, select the Change Tracking check box.

Select Change Tracking for an entity
