This is an extension ;-) to https://experience.dynamics.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=7dce671b-7802-ea11-b862-0003ff68edfa (Increase Length of Application object Identifier to 50 Characters)

We need to add prefix or suffix to Field Names (& Object Names & Controls & Actions), which makes it very hard to make good Field Names with the current limitations.

Please increase it to at least 50 characters, as it will greatly improve the readability.

Thank you for your feedback. Increasing field name length will have breaking downstream impact, and similar to object names there are some deeply rooted limits imposed by backend that require new way of handling object identifiers. This is high cost. We are considering adding it to our longer term roadmap though.

Best regards,
