What are ‘Entities’?


In Dynamics, an Entity is the name of a section of information.

What are the core entities?

The core entities are:

  • Accounts
  • Contacts
  • Leads

  • Countries

Further information on these can be found by clicking on the names in D365.

When you are in the entity, anything that you either view, create or edit will be classed as a ‘record’.
