Every now and then, with Dynamics CRM 2011 (and CRM 4), you can end up with two default views for the same Entity. It seems to occur when you import a solution with certain customizations to an entity.
I think in our case it occurred when we renamed the Account entity to be Organisation. A supported way of resolving this is outlined below.
- Create a new view on the same entity called ‘fix’ and assign some filter criteria (it doesn’t matter what)
- Set the new view as the default
- Publish your changes
- Open the new view, go to more actions and delete it. You can’t delete it from the main list of views as you will get an error “You cannot delete a default view until you have specified another view as the default”
- Publish your entity again
You should now only have one default view and no more problems!
