Add facilities and equipment for service scheduling (Customer Service)

Facilities and equipment are resources you’d use to perform services for your customers. Facilities could be physical spaces like service bays or conference rooms and equipment could be tools or other assets. Add these resources to Microsoft Dynamics 365 to ensure optimal services to your customers.

Add a facility or equipment

  1. Make sure you have the System Administrator security role or equivalent permissions in Microsoft Dynamics 365.

    Check your security role

    • Follow the steps in View your user profile.

    • Don’t have the correct permissions? Contact your system administrator.

  2. Go to Settings > Service Management.


    Go to Settings > Business Management.

    • Business Unit. Dynamics 365 enters the business unit automatically. To choose a different business unit, choose the Lookup button and then select from the list.

    • Site. Select the location where the facility or equipment is located.


      Make sure the site and the customer are in the same location. Resources for a given service activity should also be located at the same site.
