Extend Universal Resource Scheduling actions to use your preferred geospatial data provider (Field Service, Project Service Automation)

Applies to Dynamics 365 (online), version 9.x

You can create a custom plug-in and register on the Universal Resource Scheduling actions that provide geospatial functionality to use data from a data provider of your choice instead of the default Bing Maps API.

The following Universal Resource Scheduling actions provide geospatial functionality in Dynamics 365 for Field Service and Dynamics 365 for Project Service Automation:

  • msdyn_GeocodeAddress for geocoding addresses
  • msdyn_RetrieveDistanceMatrix for calculating travel times and distances between two locations.

The Field Service and Project Service Automation solutions contain a plug-in registered on these two actions that, by default, uses the data provided by Bing Maps API to perform geospatial operations.
