Microsoft D365 uses the Autocomplete search type of the Experian Address Validation API. Our Autocomplete search type is designed to provide accurate suggestions in real-time, that continually update as the user types. The user should provide the address elements in the order that they would appear on an envelope.

An Experian Account Manager will be in contact to create a license agreement with you or you can preview our terms and conditions. Alternatively contact Support.

As of November 2020, Microsoft has changed some terminology. Please note:

Legacy term Current term
Entity, entities Table, tables
Field, fields. Attribute, attributes Column, columns
Record, records Row, rows
Option set, multi select option sets.Picklist, picklists Choice, choices
Two Options Yes/No

Sometimes during installation the EDQ library is not added automatically to the Event handlers in the Main Account form properties. You will need to do this manually. Since the library is not associated with the form it will not trigger any validation at all.

To manually add the EDQ library:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Advanced Settings
  3. Customize the system
  4. Find your entity where you want the validation to work (i.e. f.ex. Account), then expand the entity properties and select Forms.
  5. Find the entity main form and click Form Properties.
  6. Check that the EDQ Javascript library has been added. Also check that an EDQ Event Handler function has been registered.The function should be AddAddressSearchInput.

If you have Experian MS Dynamics 365 v2 solution, you must remove this by uninstalling the managed solution.
If you have Experian MS Dynamics 365 V3 solution onwards, follow our upgrade instructions.

MSDCRM V3 supports all interfaces in MS Dynamics 365 i.e. unified interface, quick create forms and main/standard forms.

The Forms tab in the Configuration screen is the Experian solution will display any forms which are in use or available in your organisations MSD365 instance. You can select any of these forms to be activated with Experians solution.

Address Validation can be set on all forms containing one or more of the address fields (line1, line2, line3) or composite address.

Yes. Tracking and reporting is currently available on client portal, based on the token used.

Yes, address enrichment data, including geolocation data can now be enabled within the Microsoft Dynamics 365 integration, where you have this data included as part of the tokens applied.

There are several datasets available depending on whether you have just the address validation (autocomplete search type) service or the additional enrichment validation (which are purchased separately for each country).

Yes, multiple licenses are required. However, you can use a single token, associated with all the licenses that you have purchased. Ensure that you have discussed these needs with your Account Manager.

This is done through the configuration page within the Managed Solution you have installed. Within the Configuration page, you can input your token for Address Validation, Phone Validation and Email Validation and additionally you can activate a tick box for Enrichment data, including gelocation data.

Yes. If the address you want does not appear in the dropdown, you can override the search and enter your own address. The Validation message will change to "Manual entry by user" and a new timestamp will appear.

After validation of an address, email or phone number, a JavaScript error may occur.
TypeError: Cannot read properties of null (reading 'setValue').
This only occurs in version 4.0.131 of the Experian app where validation results (message or timestamp) fields have not been mapped onto the form being used.
Create and add the Validation Message and Validation Timestamp fields to the form where the issue occurs.
If you don't want to display these fields to your users, you can hide them form view.

The solution will remember the last country you selected and show that the next time you go to add an address.

You can view the response status codes mapping and the timestamp responses in our User guides for address validation, email validation and phone validation.
