We’ve talked about forms in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, from role-based to quick-create, but today let’s talk about the labels on those forms. In Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, field labels do not currently wrap. If a label is longer than the allotted size, users will see fading text instead of the entire label.

Don’t worry—you don’t need to create elaborate abbreviations for field labels. Today’s blog will help you out!

Notice that the field label below, Preferred Method of Contact, fades off on the contact form.

CRM 2013 Field Label Sizes

There are a few options for displaying the entire label.

Option 1: Lengthen Your CRM 2013 Field Label Sizes

  1. Click on the section of the form containing the lengthy label name and click Change Properties.

  2. Update the Field Label Width to fit your needs.

  3. Preview the form to make sure your label now appears completely.

Option 2: Display the Label Above the Field

  1. Click on the section of the form containing the lengthy label name and click Change Properties.

  2. Select Formatting and change the Field Label Position to Top.

  3. Preview the form to make sure your label now appears completely.

You can also shorten labels or place fields in a section of the form that has fewer columns. Regardless of the solution you choose, there is no need for fading field labels!
