Clear field value in Business Rule CRM 2015 Update 1

With the introduction of Business Rules in CRM, it is now very easy for end users (non-developers) to perform simple tasks like Set value, show/hide field, etc based on conditions without writing any code. Previously these simple tasks were performed by developers using JavaScript.

Having said that, Business Rules also came with some limitations, one such limitation is the inability to clear field value. Lots of feedback’s were provided and finally the developers have listened and they have introduced this functionality in the latest update i.e. CRM 2015 Update 1.

Clear Field Value

Clearing a field is nothing but setting it’s value to null. So, all you need to do is to select Set Field Value and then previously it used to display only two options for any given field i.e. Field and Value but now you should be able to find a new option that reads Clear. Take a look at the screenshot below.
