  • Hi Rory,

    Here is an example of adding a ribbon button to a form: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg334341.aspx.

    To open a new entity record, you can use the fact that CRM forms are Url Addressable Forms. So by passing in parameters to the main.aspx page you can open any form, view or dialog in CRM 2011: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg328483.aspx

    You can then use this url in either a Url action, or create a JavaScript web resource to open the url and reference it in a JavaScriptFunction action as Makarand suggests above.

    Kind regards
