For a while I have been meaning to look into Henril’s Workflow Automation Tool. The reason being that when CRM 2011 first can out I created a workflow automation tool myself. It was developed for my current employer, so in reviewing this tool not only do I share my experiences with Henril’s version, I also get to bench mark my own version. If you are interested in this tool you can download it or find more info on it here.
I’m not sure if this issue is just tried to the ribbon but I lost quite a lot of dev time today trying to figure out what was happening. Take this post as a heads up just incase you get the same issue. Part of a product I am developing requires a silverlight application being started from the click of a ribbon button. However after altering the XML for the ribbon my changes weren’t being displayed.
This recently tripped me up somewhat. It should be a trivial task and in actual fact it is if you know where to specifically look in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 SDK. However, being developer minded I made the mistake of grabbing the URL CRM automatically sets for a create record form.
